This was the first two weeks of my September:
1 – Launch Serenity Place DC yoga studio
2 – Travel to Tulsa, OK for my new educational services company
3 & 4 – Provide technical assistance in Tulsa from 8:30 am-10:30 pm daily
5 – Finish Tulsa work and fly home, landing at 11 pm
6 – Teach yoga, run errands, get massage and host dinner party
I feel overwhelmed about 90 percent of the time. Whether it’s because work is stressful, or I’m not getting enough sleep, or that pesky To Do list keeps getting longer and longer, life often feels like it’s too much. I also have been known to set impossibly high standards for myself (ahem… perfectionism)—and I’m no stranger to effort (workaholic). I can go weeks without a meaningful interaction with a loved one. I’m just too busy. I feel great when I am on my yoga mat, practicing asana or meditation, but the stress returns as soon as I get off.
