I was thinking that since we are well into January, a simple, short and sweet blog post was in order to give you some tips to handle the stacking of activities, and thereby, the stacking of emotional experiences that can happen during the beginning of the year. It can all feel so stressful, no?
Just remember that no stacking = less intensity and less intensity = reduced stress. Do any of these sound familiar?
“Can’t we stay longer, if we just cancel the afternoon?”
“Do we have to go to that … ?”
“Let me check my schedule. How about 3 months from Tuesday?”
“I can’t, because I have to …”
“Can you wait just a few more minutes, I want to do …”
“If I had the time, we could, but we can’t so we won’t…”
“Can you do it? I can’t leave work until …?”
“I want to start … but when can I find the time?”
We hear these phrases from people of all ages and they center around time compression. When we don’t feel we have enough time, it makes it harder for us to show up with good intentions and with the right kind of energy to get the right things done in the right way. So what would make it easier for all of us to get the experiences that we want to have AND meet our obligations without feeling the added stress that comes with stacking activities?
