042: The Sure-Fire Way to Make Time for Yourself in an Overflowing Life | Lisa York

You cannot control the wind, but you can direct the sail

Taking a day off from your workplace is relatively straightforward.

You ask your boss, you get the thumbs up, and you’re free to shop, surf or slacken off.

But taking the day off from motherhood. Now, that’s a bit more tricky.

I know, I tried this week.

And failed.

This week on High Five Friday, I talk about the sure-fire way to make time for yourself in an overflowing life.

036: Stop Drowning in Overwhelm and Take Back Control

You can do anything, but not everything

Do you ever feel that if one more thing goes wrong you’ll break down and cry? Or if one more demand is placed on you, you’ll surely explode?

Humm. Me too.

I call it stacking.

Each little tug on your time is perfectly innocent in it’s own right. But one thing gets stacked on top of another, and another on top of that. Eventually you have such a tall tower it starts to topple.

And of course toppling towers end up crashing down in a pile on the floor.

Our challenge as a mum is to stop that tower getting too tall.

Easier said than done, I know. But it is possible.

In this weeks episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about how to stop drowning in overwhelm and start taking back control.

This weeks challenge:

My challenge for this week is start thinking about what foundations you need to build in order to prevent feeling overwhelmed. It’s important for the sake of your family to take care of yourself, and pair down the amount of things you have on your never-ending to-do list.

 

Tell me what you think?

Tell me in the comments. What has send you over the edge recently? What did you do to deal with it?

Michelle and I are here to spur you on and help you as much as possible

Hope you enjoy the show.

Now, Go Conquer Motherhood!
