True confession here.
Although the majority of my clients at one time or another turn to me for some time/energy management help, I’m always walking that journey alongside my clients. No matter how much I know (and practice) of optimal time management practices, I still find myself at times, well simply, overwhelmed.
Yet despite how much I know better, and mind you, advise better, sometimes I realize I’ve been trapped by too many yeses, too many good intentioned promises (or honestly too many kids!) and I can feel my stress levels rise. I notice that when I think of everything I have to do my heart starts beating rapidly, my breath is more shallow and I can feel a rising sense of panic in my thoughts as I mentally calculate what’s on my to-do list, what still needs to be added, and how many hours are left in
