Being busy isn’t a badge of honour.

Being busy isn't a badge of honour.

How often do you answer the question “How are you?” with “busy”?
This was me. Like this made me more important somehow .
I thought being “Busy” = success and It just came with the territory.
But actually, I just had my priorities all wrong. I wasn’t being productive and I had weak boundaries with other people.
I was burnt out and it impacted my physical and mental health. 🤦🏻‍♂️
It’s human nature to want people to know how busy you are, whatever it is that you’re working on, you’re always busy.
It’s your choice to get up at the last possible minute, run around like a crazy person, say yes to everyone, taking no time for yourself to rest, exercise or cook a healthy meal.
If you’re working 10 hours days, you need to take a step back and ask “am I productive for the entire day?”.
Where do you need to say NO?
Review your priorities! Make YOU a priority🙋🏼‍♂️
Being busy doesn’t mean you’ve won the race, it just means you’re too busy focusing on things that shouldn’t matter, rather than having time devoted to yourself or something you genuinely want to do.
Take stock, are you really “busy”?
