Are You WAY Too Busy, Yet Bored To Tears?
I hear it all the time. 'I am soooo busy, but I'm not doing much that's fun, inspiring or adventurous.'
Are you super busy, yet have an underpinning of boredom or discontent that lingers in the background?
The most happiest, most successful people are highly focused, have clear daily direction, are playful, inspired and adventurous, and they engage in meaningful living, loving and working.
The happiest, most successful people are NOT frantic or irritable, they are not overly busy, they are not burning the candle at both ends, and they are not 'super busy, but totally bored' and they are not lacking in inspiration, energy and adventure!
Where do you fall on the spectrum?
If life isn't a great big ball of fun, the what's the point? If you're not having fun, feeling inspired, getting totally jacked up about life, love and work, then seriously, what re you doing?
It might be time to re-evaluate life.
If you are feeling bored, discontent, uninspired, tired, unfocused, and way too busy, there IS something you can do about it. There are 3 key steps you can take to get started turning things around!
After all, “a bored mind creates drama and problems to solve, just so it can have something interesting to do.” So let's get you going in a direction that IS inspiring, focused, and fun!
I recently began working with a client, a female business owner named Nadia M. who came to me feeling exhausted, working 10 hour days, rarely made time for self- care (healthy eating and fitness) and barely had time to connect in meaningful ways with her family. And when she did spend time with her husband and daughter, she was far less patient and more distracted than she preferred. She was was burning the candle at both ends and was hoping to turn things around.
Together, we made a focused plan to turn her business and personal life around, and within 3 months she was working 7-8 hour days, zero weekends, spending playful and energized time with her family, and even taking time to practice yoga 2 times a week, something she had been wanting to do for years.
People have become exceptional at being over stimulated, but bored to tears! Busy all the time, but rarely focused on strategic initiatives (in business or at home – yes, home too should have a business plan with strategic initiatives that speak to and intentionally grow the health and wealth of your family unit)). You may be running around like a chicken with your head cut off, but not engaging work or life in meaningful, purposeful, or fulfilling or fun and playful ways.
