Well, hello there, fans of Soften Saturday! It’s been awhile. I took a break from writing Soften Saturday posts every Saturday because, well, I was Overworked and Overwhelmed.
In addition to writing here, I also manage the social media for my site and my other business, teach cooking classes, coach folks new to dietary restrictions or those seeking healthy eating assistance, am a partner in a busy balloon artistry business, maintain a home, tend backyard chickens and a garden, care for three fur-kids, am a wife, try to keep in touch with family and friends, travel for work and occasionally pleasure, volunteer in my community, develop new recipes, try to finish a culinary education program I started too long ago and probably ten other things I’m currently forgetting.
Yep, overworked and overwhelmed.
Can you relate? I’m going to guess you can. Nearly everyone I have asked this week has told me they feel overwhelmed often. Among those I’ve asked, many have felt overworked and ALL of those I asked who are self-employed felt over-worked.
So what are we going to do about this?…
