It's been a hot minute since I posted a blog post. But here's the deal...I run a small business. I am marketing, sales, customer service, product development and the actual product! That said, when an influx of clients comes in, sometimes things have to be put on hold because I'm only one person and clients come first.
Excuses? You betcha. Am I beating myself up? Not a chance.
I always tell my clients to give themselves grace. Life gets hectic. Life gets busy. Stress causes havoc. It impacts our bodies, health, relationships, focus, decision making, rest and so much more. So when life spins faster than you can, it's time to do a few things.
Set priorities. Make a list of all of your responsibilities. Separate that list into negotiable and non-negotiable tasks. Decide what can be temporarily postponed on the negotiable list. For me, creating content was put on hold. Time blocking is a great way to manage time. Try blocking off the have to do things and fill the available time with the rest.
Address the stress. It's normal to feel stressed when you aren't living up to your expectations of yourself. So don't try to hide the stress, ignore it or fake that you are okay. Be real with those around you and up your use of stress coping strategies.
Give yourself the same grace you'd afford someone else.
Move through the stress and hop back into that negotiable list and complete the things you've let slide.
It's okay to get busy and put things aside that can wait. But if they are important, make sure you put them at the top of that to do list when the crisis is over.
You'll be seeing more great content coming soon including stress management strategies, blog posts, some great new programs, recipes and so much more, so stay tuned!
In health and happiness!
