Even though it's only mid-week, it's been full on with no signs of slowing down and my 'to do' list is ever expanding. What with birthdays, trips up north, blogging, mothering, postal runs, worrying,  freelancing, a leaving party (my friend is emigrating to Melbourne *sniff sniff*), and that's just the tip of the iceberg, I feel a bit overwhelmed.

Normally I would get stressed and this would be no fun for those living in my house, but instead I have decided to stop. I know I can't stop the day to day, as there are some responsibilities that are constant and it will all crash down around my head, but I can stop for moments. So I will stand still, take a minute to centre myself, zone out if I have to, say no to demands that I would normally say yes to, and just stand still.

In that calm moment I will take a breath and recharge myself. I will gather my strength, my thoughts and put a foot forward, taking small steps. I feel the blog has been neglected this weeks but sometimes you need to take a step back in order to see the whole picture.

So this afternoon will be spent making lists and rearranging dates. If you feel like it's all getting too much then take just take a moment.

    1. Glad to know I'm not the only one! Hope you're ok lovely xxx

  2. I get this too! A few years ago I did quite a bit of guided meditation to get me through a particularly stressful time at work. I probably should do it again, but I don't ;-) But the key thing I still do is to focus on my breath - even if I'm still doing something else, like the laundry/pushing the pram/making dinner. Just really go into the breath for just a minute. It's the simple things, eh? x

    1. I think you're right, being mindful of one's self definitely is the key to combat daily stresses but I somehow still struggle with it. Fingers crossed this week is less manic x
