Last week I wrote about enjoying our empty moments. This week it’s just the opposite.
Sometimes our to-do list seems exhausting even to look at. Today is one of those days for me.
Just staring at the list makes it worse, of course. Prioritizing helps – what absolutely needs to be done? Crossing off some things – not because they were accomplished but because, as good an idea as they seemed at the time, they are not essential.
Simplifying is a wonderful method. How can I still do what’s on my list in a more manageable way?
So that’s what I’m doing today. I’m simplifying and then moving on to the next thing on my list. And I encourage everyone of you out there if and whenever your list seems too much, to do the same.
Then breathe in through your nose deeply, hold a few seconds and exhale slowly and completely through your mouth. Ah! feeling more peaceful already.
Now on to the next thing on my list.
