Overwhelm can cause mistakes. Slowing down a bit avoids pitfalls (as much as possible). Those thoughts are worth much more than mere pennies if they are cared for properly - just don't let them swamp you. When you multi-task, although it seems like you'll get more done, you actually lose productivity by dividing your attention.
When do you run your mind tapes during the day? Just before sleep or first thing in the morning? We all do it. The balance happens when we don't let it cycle over and over and over and... over.
Time to change. Think of asking for help as a sign of wisdom. You realize that you’re at your peak and that muddling through produces less efficient results. By taking an active step in reaching out, you are taking back the reins of your life. You take your car to the shop for service, right? Maybe even have a delivery service for groceries to ease the running back and forth? Those things both count as "help." Perhaps, then, whether it’s a problem you’re not sure how to solve, or you're too emotionally drained, or just can’t figure out how to get that document sorted, you can raise your hand.
Fall brings on a sense of change and is a time of year that I look forward to. I am in awe of the colors changing, and the temperatures getting cooler gives me a nudge to turn inwards. A time of reflection and the ability to clear out what is no longer serving me.
With so many things to balance in your everyday life, why not put a bit of old-school organization around some of them to make your life simpler? Your mind wanders when surrounded by clutter or trying to remember if it was the salt that you needed or the baking soda, so why not implement a few tricks to help put your mind at ease.
Do you find yourself standing on a fine line of determining what is right and wrong when making decisions for your loved one?
Raise your hands; how many of you are up in the middle of the night thinking about where you’ve put something, trying to remember appointments, etc.?
