Has your head ever felt like a whirlpool?
So many ideas, deadlines, projects, priorities, people to see, things to do, good intentions, fun ideas, serious plans, visions, goals and challenges….
Last week I hit the overload point – my head was spinning. I felt overwhelmed.
The last few months have been really busy building Less Ordinary Living; finding new partners, coaching my wonderful clients, keeping up with blogging, creating new products and service offerings. It’s been amazing and exciting, but exhausting.
I’ve also been trying to stay connected to my friends, take advantage of the amazing summer here in Britain, keep fit and healthy, learn new skills and train for an adventure race in September.
I always have personal development projects on the go too – learning to meditate, keeping promises to myself, taking up journalling.
Finally, last week I got some personal news that knocked the wind out of me.
Life started to feel far too complicated and I didn’t have the energy to cope with everything.
The Power of Simple
This week, I’ve cut back to simple. KISS – Keep It Simple, Stupid…
I looked at what is most important for me right now:
- To be healthy
- To grow my closest relationships
- To get my new website finished
This week, I’ll only do what is needed to achieve this. The rest is not important – it can wait.
The whirlpool in my head has stopped spinning.
The Power of Simple has changed everything. I feel calmer, happier and back in control.
