I know I tell my own kids “suck” is not a nice word, but that’s why its perfect to use to describe stress. Stress does suck. It sucks our energy, our emotions, even our health. And if you can’t learn to deal with your stress and eventually prevent yourself from getting to that point, it won’t matter what other steps you take.
So before I can teach you how to really handle your time, we need to learn about stress: why we get stressed, how stress affects us, and the difference between being busy and being stressed. So often, we assume we cannot add anything else to our plates because taking that college course or committing to that gym membership or starting that huge project at work will do nothing but give us anxiety and ultimately cause us to fail.
THIS IS NOT TRUE!
You can have big goals and achieve more in your day by managing your time better. But first you have to learn to not let yourself get stressed out the moment something gets hard, otherwise it won’t matter how great you are at managing your time because you will give up and go back to sitting on the couch all day watching The Real Housewives.
Every Wednesday for the next couple of weeks, I will help you to understand your stress, the triggers, the effects, and – most of all – the solutions. Once you have that mastered, I am going to make sure you learn how to Take Your Day Back, finding more time to do the things you want and need to everyday, and how to truly find your peace of time.
As someone who always made people ask, “How does she do it?”, I had to learn how to fit more into my day without completely losing my mind. Now I’m excited to share how I did that and what I’ve learned with everyone else. I just want to see people able to live the life they want, doing the things they want, without the stress they think is normal. I want everyone to experience Peace of Time.
