Don’t wear busy as a badge of honor.
There was a time in my life when I would pride myself on being busy. When someone asked how I was doing, I’d say “busy!” and turn down opportunities to see my family and friends and simply rest. Thankfully, I eventually realized that I was equating busyness to success, which certainly are not the same thing.
To reference our quote, I was wearing busy as a badge of honor! There are of course going to be busy days, weeks and times of our lives, but I encourage you to avoid wearing busy as a badge of honor and to enjoy as much quality time with your friends and family as possible!
To your health! ~Neissa

- This article, “Are You Headed for ‘Hurried Women Syndrome?,” we can all relate to! “We often don’t realize the damage to the body that’s caused by chronic stress… If you don’t slow down, and you don’t find ways to resolve it, your body will pay the price. A woman will produce oxytoxin…Her sex drive will lessen. She will have a higher risk of heart disease, obesity and other eating disorders.” We know prioritizing ourselves is difficult when others depend on us so greatly, but we also know that not prioritizing ourselves has even worse consequences. http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/story?id=125536&page=1
