Learning to Not Do It All

I feel it in my shoulders first, then the pit of my stomach, and finally it feels almost as if my throat is constricting. My familiar friend anxiety. It can manifest itself in all sorts of ways, but today it was my usual. Standing in the kitchen I felt overwhelmed by the prospect of things I’ve left half finished, not even started, and even the things I know I’ve forgotten. I was staring down the clock, my nemesis, and wondering how I lost a whole day yet again with hardly a thing checked off my to do list.

There’s a million books, podcasts, and blogs, all about how to maximize our productivity and get more done in a day. I’ve probably read or listened to most of them; I’ve probably tried at least half of their tips. I’ve decluttered, I’ve brain dumped, I’ve tried all the apps and paper planners, and yet, today, I realized I’m a week late on writing this post. It slipped through the cracks. Something always does.
