Sometimes we allow our lives to become too full without even realizing it. When this happens, we can become so overwhelmed that it feels like everything is important and saying no isn’t an option.

It’s times like these that it is crucial to take a step back and reevaluate everything that you spend time doing. Try looking at each area of your life separately as if you were putting it under a microscope looking for clues for how you can restructure and do things differently.
