Life swirls out of control—that's just what it does.
As I write this email my wife is texting me telling me that our 1-year-old daughter refuses to sleep, insists on being carried around all day, and is making an absolute mess of our house. Not to mention that my 6-year-old is sick and our 9-year-old needs to get picked up from tae kwon do class. Through this all, we still have a house to run, jobs to keep (and do well), and a relationship to preserve.
So believe me when I say that I know how it feels to be frazzled. Whether you have kids or not, if you’re like most Americans, at some point you will feel absolutely exhausted and overwhelmed, and therefore unproductive. But it’s bigger than that because over time, that "frazzled" feeling can lead to apathy and even depression.
It’s important to take charge and have a plan to build a sense of inner calm and stability. In this article, I share 10 simple tips I find helpful with the hope that they might help you, too.
