I’ve hit household bottom. I can’t remember the last time I dusted, the plants are wilting, and I had to wear my yoga shorts and top as undergarments today. In other words, time to start at least one load of laundry.
Yet it has been a great week. We’ve enjoyed delicious home cooked meals, we’ve shared quality family time, and I was happy about publishing a fun Wellspring Guideposts. How can these contradictory experiences coexist?
When I feel overloaded, I turn to a CalmUp® Journey. The tendency, of course, is to want to push and get started with the tasks right away: water plants, clean up dishes, give the dogs a bath, etc. Instead, by slowing down and completing the 7 Levels of the CalmUp® Journey, I rise above household chaos.
IT’S ABOUT YOU:
- How do you cope when you feel overwhelmed? Do you talk to a friend, go around feeling stressed out, etc.?
- In what area(s) of your life do you experience chaos? And in what area(s) of your life are you excelling?
- By the end of my day, my home was clean, my laundry was done, and I wrote this blog. What do you do to rise above your own chaos?
