Writer’s block. Foggy brain. Lacking desire to put pen to paper, or in this case finger to keyboard. The feeling of wow I have not shared on this platform in a long time and I really want to, but I do not know what to say. I do not think I have ever Google searched “what to write for a blog post” before…until just now. I also do not think there has been a year that when someone asks me if I have any trips planned, I replied “I hope not.” I think these both speak volumes, and I think it means I should share.
Yours truly has been consistently moving and treading for a long time… so much hustle and bustle, no “bored days” or downtime…and I think it is catching up with me…
As I write this, I realize there is a message I need to share and it consists of some ideas to beat this stress and to fill this busy season with positivity and rest. We can both benefit from this (hopefully) as I need these reminders too!
Here are 3 reminders (for you and for me) to help ENJOY and move forward during a busy season of life:
- Prioritize: What is the most important? Even if its the most difficult, focus on the most important tasks at hand. Get them done first, and you’ll spend less time stressing about it and more time on the rest that follow.
- Don’t be afraid to delegate tasks and to ask for help. PHEW, yours truly needed to hear this! Even if it is tasks that you know you can accomplish, its OKAY to ask someone to help you get it done more efficiently. It will relieve stress and allow you to accomplish it faster.
- Schedule time away from your to do list, work, chores, etc. I tend to come up with lots of creative ideas in my downtime, such as social media content, blog posts, conversations I want to have, topics I want to learn more about, etc. Spare time, time to just be, time to feel and reflect is so important and super helpful. Learning to rest is important, let’s do more of it!
While I am certainly no expert, these are a few reminders that you may find helpful…and that I also needed to hear. I think the first ocean photo describes the chaos and our busy seasons and one day, believe it or not, we actually might miss the busy season. During our busy times of live, we do not need to race through; we can learn to calm the waters, set ourselves free from expectations, and learn to rest amongst the chaos.
