I don’t know if it’s my nature, or the nature of working for oneself, or maybe just the nature of being alive, but sometimes I find myself totally overwhelmed by my to do list, and I’ve been feeling especially overwhelmed these past couple of weeks. My honey and I are heading to Paris next week to visit my sister, and I know I should be excited, but right now I’m mostly worried about all the things that need to be done before I leave. Isn’t that terrible?!
I’m trying to get better at the balancing act, and at maintaining some perspective, and I always love to hear how other people seem to handle this sort of feeling so gracefully. So friends, tell me… what are your tips for managing stress? Any magic tricks for staying present? Or if you’re like me and feeling overwhelmed, hopefully these happy links will be a nice distraction…
