On Not Glorifying Busyness

Posted on February 2, 2016 at 7:27 am by

Helloooo lovelies (: I hope your week is off to a fabulous start! I knew going into this week that it was going to be a bit crazy. I have my first exams of the semester, my new e-books are about to launch (!!!), I had a ton of work to get done outside of classes, etc. So I went in with the mindset of NOT glorifying the busyness. I made sure to clean up my desk area, because I know that is where I spend the majority of my mornings:

I wanted to be able to walk into my office each morning with a peaceful, patient attitude. I’ve been trying to start each morning with coffee + meditation. Meditation being me relishing the quiet for 5 minutes sans technology and just thinking about what I’m grateful for and my intentions for the day. It really does help keep me grounded as opposed to starting each day off as a frenzied mess.

I’ll be the first to admit that I am one who usually gets swept up into the busyness of life. I have a lot going on all of the time and sometimes I get a little crazy. Well I’m working on taking charge over my mind which in turn takes charge over my days. I’m keeping my thoughts positive which makes my days so much better, busy or not.

Make sure (even on busy days…especially on busy days) to start your morning with a little quiet time. Set your intentions and start each day with a grateful heart. Don’t give in to glorifying the busyness. Recognize it, but don’t let it frazzle you or give you a negative mindset!

xo, Jess
