Sometimes you have to know when to slow down and choose what things in life you can take a tiny break from. This is not my strong suit at all. I want to forge ahead. To keep a full calendar.
The problem here is then being overwhelmed and stressed at not having enough time to accomplish all the tasks you’ve put on your plate. Some of you may have even noticed I didn’t post my usual weekly workout log post last week and barely got in another post before Friday had come and gone.
Two weeks ago my plate was just too full. Hell, I only got in two workouts to boot.
I have five months left of school and five courses to get through. As wonderful as my trip to the Minneapolis Burlesque Festival was I didn’t get any of the school work that I brought with done. That’s completely my own fault, but I had to scramble for a week to catch back up.
Playing catchup plus trying to get in extra shifts at a new job left me feeling spread just a little too thin. I had to do what I said I wasn’t going to do when I started this blog…take a small break from it.This project is my baby and I love it so much, I would gladly spend all my hours a day working on it but sometimes other priorities are just more of a priority.
I know I’m not the only one guilty of this. Especially within the nightlife world and the constant juggle of a day job and a night job that so many of you have. The juggle that I too had for 3 years.
Do you find yourself overloading your schedule and calendar too often? Does the day job/night job juggle become a source of stress? How much sleep do you lose trying to fit it all in? And when will you learn to just let yourself drop something for just a little while?
