It is so easy to get over whelmed when we are busy. Whether we are busy with work, our personal life or anything else we seldom make time to think about what we actually want to get out of our time. This week’s journaling prompt is all about setting our goals and planning for the month ahead.
When we are busy the first thing that gets pushed aside is doing things for ourselves. We focus on things like cooking, cleaning, going to work, preparing for presentations etc. because we have to do these things. If we don’t take time to relax or enjoy ourselves no one is going to be angry with us.
This is a very slippery slope. When we don’t make time for ourselves we become irritable, tired and low in mood. Having had a very busy last few weeks meant I haven’t been able to plan things or get the things done that I wanted. The blog has suffered from a severe lack of content over the last few weeks and my brain has been bursting with things that I need to do and shouldn’t forget!
If all of this sounds familiar to you, take a look at our journal prompt and take some time to plan. Remember to include some leisure time in your plans! It is not selfish, it is self care; and it is necessary!
