How do you gals do it? Seriously… I could really use some lessons in how to be successful at life. I always feel like I’m trying to catch up on something, usually lots of things. I’m always running. Even if i’m just sitting on the couch most of the day like I did this past weekend, I still feel insufficient, like I’m hustling and just cant get ahead. It’s exhausting. I can’t get enough done. My “To Do” list (if I were organized enough to actually have a To Do list) would be a mile long.
I’ve been listening to the replays of the From Infertility to Pregnancy webcasts while commuting or doing dishes (trying to cram even more into my already overfull life) and most of them so far are sharing wonderful information. There is a little bit I’ve disagreed with based on my knowledge of diet and nutrition for fertility but mostly it’s been good stuff. Including stuff you need to hear even if you already know about it. I’m talking here about the concept of self care. We all know we should be taking care of ourselves: exercising, eating well, relaxing, getting plenty of rest and enjoying life… but it’s so hard….. I can not find the time to do all of these things and still go to work and do the laundry and all the other stuff that is part of functioning in society. Who am I kidding, I can’t even do all the daily life stuff, forget about trying to the extras. Am I the only one or do you gals struggle with this as well? What are some strategies you use to make time to take care of yourselves and still make the bed and pay the bills etc…?
