As you may remember, last month, I conducted a survey asking you about what was important to you and what topics you’d like more help with in the coming year (if you missed it and still want to participate, you can do so here. I’d love to hear from you and I’m giving away an audio about taking control of emotional eating just for participating).
It probably won’t surprise you that one of the most troublesome issues I heard about (over and over!) was that you just can’t figure out how to make time for yourself so that you can do the things you need to do to thrive and to enjoy your life and your work the way you want to.
As a result, many of you told me you are struggling with stress and overwhelm and the “side effects” of that missing “me time” and self care:
• Compromised health and/or wellness
• Diminished energy
• Decreased productivity
• Reduced focus (including getting distracted from your own goals and priorities)
• Diminished passion for the things that are truly important to you
• Exhaustion and stress
Basically, life just isn’t nearly as great as it could be.
Thanks to all of you who responded. I’m so glad you brought this up. It’s a subject near and dear to my heart. And yes, of course I struggle with it too. And it would benefit us all to get even a teeny bit better with this “me-time” stuff. All the best intentions won’t get us anywhere (except worn out) if we can’t find the way to put them into effective action so that they work for us.
I’ve decided to start 2010 by tackling this issue head on. After all, when we are struggling with what I’ve described, it’s pretty difficult to move forward in the areas we want to make changes in.
