Topic of the Week
Are you missing your life? Ask yourself:
How often do I overindulge in the following?
Checking or sending emails
Talking on the phone
Engaging with others on social media sites
Chronically complaining about what isn’t working
Rushing from one task/activity to another
Getting “caught up”
Taking care of the needs of others
This week, while listening to an old friend talk about how she no longer distracts herself with substances or activities that prevent her from living in the present, I was reminded of how important it is to limit these seductive actions. When overdone, they make it easy to numb out, avoid making necessary changes, lose connection with loved ones, or tolerate the things that would be intolerable to someone with healthy, high standards.
So, think about it. Which one are you ready to limit this week so you can feel and experience more of your precious life?
