Is it just me or has life been really damn hectic. I’ve been feeling a bit like taffy, getting pulled all over the place, but over the last few weeks I’ve done some things that have helped alleviate the taffy feeling. These are all good things, but I’m sure some people will be shocked at my lack of availability.
First, I turned off my texts from Facebook. Yep, no more texts 24/7 saying I got messages from this, that or the next person. Sorry – love you guys, but really? 2 AM? Not that I’m even awake at 2 AM, or the fact that my text alerts were silenced while I was sleeping… 2 AM?! I’m going to quote Samuel L. Jackson here with this advice, “Go the fuck to SLEEP!”
I moderate a modeling discussion forum on Facebook, up until recently, it was just me and the founder. The founder needed some time off to deal with her life, I brought in recruits to help moderate, they’re enthusiastic and the work load is spread out. LOVE you guys! I’m very happy that I have been able to cut back my time dramatically being a Babysitter-in-chief.
I consolidated all but one of my emails to forward to one account. Time-saver!
I am taking more “Me Time”. Up early in the morning (it’s okay… I like mornings), I get stuff done around the house or go to work, I come home and get stuff done. I stopped jumping to respond to every text, email, phone call and every other form of communication. I’ll get to it when I get to it.
I’m getting back to reading more – I’ve missed it.
The best part of all of this? I’m much more relaxed and a relaxed me is a very good thing.
How do all of you Dear Readers deal with being too busy?
