That might seem like an odd topic for a blog post, or maybe it’s just perfect. I’m sitting at the computer writing this blog after a long day at work. A lot to do and not enough time to do it.
That seems to always be the way it is anymore. It’s not just at work that this problem occurs. It happens at home, too.
Spent most of the weekend doing cleaning around the house. Floors were swiffered, furniture was dusted, dishes cleaned. It seems to never end. My husband is catching up on the laundry and I’ll put it away when it’s done. Bills need to get paid and bathrooms need to be scrubbed, dog needs to be walked and fed.
Exercise? Sleep? Who has time? There are too many other things to do in the 24 hours that we have each day. Meals are often on the run, or eaten much too quickly to be healthy.
We all try to squeeze so much into our days. If we work a full time job that just takes up more of our time. Not only do we spend time at work, we spend time commuting to and from which takes precious time from everything else we have to do. There are time I bring work home which keeps me from getting other stuff done that I want to get done.
We all need a break every once in awhile, but breaks are hard to come by. If you’re like me, while you’re relaxing, you think of all the stuff you should be doing. Of course, I think of all the stuff I would rather be doing while sitting in boring business meetings as well.
Bottom line is our lives have become so busy and so overwhelmingly crowded with tons of stuff we “have” to get done that we don’t often get done the things we “need” to get done. These things include having a nice, relaxing meal with family, exercising, and getting plenty of sleep.
Now, I’m off to do the ten million other things I have to get done before I go back to work tomorrow morning.
