This week I am trying something new. It’s rather groundbreaking for me … I’m going to stop complaining about how busy I am.
(Complaining is my cardio. This will be a brand new world … also I will have to add an extra workout.)
For the past few weeks (months?) it feels like life has accelerated and folded in a’la Inception. I find myself complaining about how busy I am on the regular. Even in my thoughts, the inner monologue runs all day with outbursts about being too busy to breathe.
This week I am shutting down that exhausted self-talk. When I catch myself saying it either internally or out loud I’m stopping, redirecting my thoughts, and focusing on something positive. My hope is this will pick up my mood and make me feel more optimistic during the day. I’m interested to see if it helps me feel less stressed out. It’s a good experiment, anyway, and even if it doesn’t miraculously clear up my schedule maybe it will make me more pleasant to be around.
