We all find that 'time' seems to run our lives;
Work Schedules
Committee meetings, clubs, Organizations
Making Supper
Cleaning etc.

We eventually run out of time to relax, enjoy our families and 'smell the roses' so to speak. This can be causing physical and mental harm to our bodies as well as mental anguish.

How do we manage to get back on track and give ourselves the time we need for ourselves?

We have to simplify ourselves! Do you remember back when your life was simple and you seemed to have time for everything that you wanted to do? Doesn't that seem like that was decades ago? We have to simplify our lives by getting rid of the clutter that is taking over and re-evaluate ourselves by finding out what are true priorities really are.

Just recently, due to the death of an immediate family member, I have done just that. I had to put my life on hold and I had to concentrate on the situation that was happening. It meant canceling meetings, not going on the computer to update the website, changing appointments that were at my convenience, the house cleaning was ignored and my priorities were set.

Believe it or not, not one club or organization folded because I wasn't there, no one closed there office because I had to change an appointment, the house didn't blow up because it wasn't clean and the outside world went on as usual.

Figure out what your priorities are and work your life around it. It is as simple as that. So you miss a meeting or two, what if your appointments are scheduled for only two days a week instead on one or two a day for every day of the week? No one will care and it will reduce the clutter in your life by 75% at least. Get rid of all of those things that you signed up to do and now have to fit in somewhere on your schedule.

Stress and frustration relief, is what you will get as a bonus, mental and physical relaxation will be a good feeling to your body and your family won't have to look at a picture to remember what you look like.

Your priority in life will return to living and you will become a better person for it.
