Playing catch up

When you’ve fallen behind, it can be difficult to catch up. You find yourself having to work double or triple time to get back to where you want (or need) to be. You might even find yourself questioning whether it’s even worth it.

Maybe instead of potentially over-working yourself, you should simply go at your own pace. Slow down if you want to, stop if you need to.

If you’re catching up to something that you have to do, that you’re obligated to with consequences if you don’t get back on track, find a way to make it work. But if it’s something you’re doing for yourself, with no consequences, it’s probably not worth working yourself into the ground for.

How to know when you’ve made the right decision

It’s all in how it feels.

When you find yourself with a choice to make between A and B, the main challenge will be wanting to make the right decision.

You don’t want to pick an option that you might later regret. But the truth is most of the time, you never really know how you’ll feel a month or a year down the line.

And as much as you can go back and forth, at the end of the day you have to choose.

I find that that it helps to put as little pressure on the decision as possible. Sometimes even make a game of it, put your options into an online hat that will pick for you or pick flower petals.

Whatever you end up choosing if you feel calm and at peace granted part of that will come from no longer having the burden of deciding on your shoulders but the feeling of peace will also be from having made the right choice for you.

Playing games

Games are a great way to spend time with people and have fun. They’re even better when you can play them away from a screen.

To some board games may seem old fashioned but they’ve managed to stand the test of time. Some games have been around for over a hundred years.

We like them because they’re simple, they remind us of our childhood and most of all they’re fun.

It doesn’t matter that there’s an online version because that cannot compare to the worn out game board, mismatched dice and random counters contained within the box.
