Mom, Are You Guilty of Mental Gymnastics? Here's a Reality Check!

Constantly thinking of what you need to do next is quite possibly the single most debilitating thing a woman can do.

  • When I'm at the office I'm thinking of what needs to be done at home and vise versa.
  • Evening runs with kids, I'm planning dinner.
  • When cooking dinner, I'm also paying bills.

My dear friend calls this mental gymnastics. She's 100 percent right. It's exhausting focusing on too many things at once. I have fallen into bed with a mind still racing, and wake up trying to pick up where I left off, wondering how I would get it all done! When my friend called me out on this, I began to realize that I was exhausting myself and missing important goals. Busy is overrated! Focus is much harder to achieve. Give yourself the freedom to focus on what you are doing – right now!
