The Time You Find
Simplifying Your Schedule

For many, life is a hodgepodge of never-ending commitments. Yet few of us can be truly healthy or happy without regular periods of downtime. While there is nothing inherently wrong with busyness, those of us who over-commit or over-extend ourselves potentially face exhaustion and burnout. When you feel overwhelmed by your commitments, examining your motivation for taking on so many obligations can help you understand why you feel compelled to do so much. You may discover that you are being driven by fear that no one else will do the job or guilt that you aren’t doing enough. To regain your equilibrium and clear the clutter from your calendar, simplify your life by establishing limits regarding what you will and will not do based on your personal priorities.

Determining where your priorities lie can be as easy as making two lists: one that outlines all those obligations that are vital to your wellbeing, such as work, meditation, and exercise, and another that describes everything you do that is not directly related to your wellbeing. Although there will likely be items in the latter list that excite your passion or bring you joy, you may discover that you devote a large portion of your time to unnecessary activities. To simplify your schedule, consider which of these unnecessary activities add little value to your life and edit them from your agenda. Remember that you may need to ask for help, say no firmly, or delegate responsibility in order to distance yourself from such encumbrances. However, as you divest yourself of non-vital obligations that cause you stress, serve no purpose, or rob you of opportunities to refresh yourself, you will feel more energetic and enthusiastic about life in general.

If simplifying your schedule seems prohibitively difficult and you still feel pressed to take on more, try imagining how each new commitment will impact your life before saying yes. When you consider the hassle associated with superfluous obligations, you may be surprised to see that your schedule is impeding your attempts to grow as an individual. Your willingness to pare down your agenda, no matter how gradual your progress, will empower you to retake active control of the life that defines you.

Hi all,

I promised to give 15% of my catalog party total this month to Team Wench to help them achieve incorporation. So far, I have right around $100 in sales towards this goal.

I also pledged that for each party I get on the calendar in January for any month, I'll give 5% of that party's total to Team Wench as well. Currently I have two parties that qualify.

I know some of you have been interested in the past, have hosted in the past, etc. Now is a great time to host again, or send in an order for any Velentine's Day or winter goodies you might be wanting.

My catalog and party details are available on my website.

Please help me help Team Wench to incorporate. Once 501(c) is established, corporate sponshorship can happen, which will open the doors to a ton of really neat events, entertainment, and other goodies, not to mention help Team Wench to exponentially raise more money for all the good causes they support. You can check out some of the past events and totals at TeamWench.org

Thanks in advance!
