…when you still have tons of work and tomorrow is the deadlines. And, when you are utterly disappointed in someone. It’s hard to concentrate.
I am myself very aware that I get very irritated when I am busy. I complain a lot. I was wondering why my “stress” glass fills up so quickly when I am busy, while I am pretty tolerant for troubles, confrontational situations, or noise, etc. Time is what pushes me across the line.
Today, I realized why. There are usually 24 other things I want to do right this moment. When I get busy, I am forced to put them aside for a certain period of time. Then the things start to pile up to about 96. Voila. That’s my stress level.
Tonight, right now, I have 4 different tasks because tomorrow is the deadlines. I have 3 hours before I go to bed.
But I also want to clean up my entire apartment. Put my clothes away, cook my dinner but didn’t have the time, read 3 books and several magazines, watch a film and knit and…. it continues. I also need to book my train ticket for tomorrow.
You know what I need? I need to meditate.
“If You’re Too Busy to Meditate, Read This” Last year, when I had read this, I almost started to meditate. This time, I saw clearly why I need to do it.
Maybe I will start from tomorrow.
