Our lives are so rich and so busy with things to do, people to see, and places to be, that sometimes the simple things don’t seem so simple anymore!
I’ve recently had shoulder surgery and have a ritual of exercises and stretches I’m supposed to do every day. 15 min a few times a day, seems simple to fit in, right?
It’s only simple if I MAKE the time, do it first thing in the morning, or literally schedule it on my iCal. As a small business owner, there are constant demands for my time; coaching, networking, business meetings, professional development, marketing plans, preparing materials, and lets not forget blogging and my newsletter- both of which have been neglected sorely as I’ve gone through this winter with an injured shoulder.
What else demands my (and probably your) time? The house, cooking, shopping, cleaning, family time, my dog, all the usuals. I had every intention of starting my day with a walk before it got too hot (weird to say on April 16!). I’m in my shorts and sneakers and remembered I had to water all the new plants that went in this weekend, and to unclog the pond filter, which is on overdrive with all the winter sludge. By the time I was done, it was almost time for my weekly planning call with my business partner, Anna Cole.
I’m proud to say that at least I am getting in a new blog post and can say I started the week productively. Oh, and I did my shoulder exercises and stretches before I even got out of bed. Yeah for me!
So what things do you struggle to fit into your busy life? Please share.
