These days it feels like no one has “free time” to do anything and the robotic response to ‘How Are You?’ Is ‘Busy’. We run late for meetings, grab lunch on the go (if at all), and get home later (and with more work still to do). Do you feel like you’re struggling to keep up? I can relate, so I am practicing becoming less busy, and more productive.
There is a huge difference between being busy and being productive though we often blur the two. It is important we recognize and separate the myth from reality. Busy does not equal better. Busy does not equal important.
In fact, keeping up these types of busy appearances feeds into a cycle of burnout, a dip in productivity/outputs, and feeling down and out like the crying-face emoji.
With this in mind, it’s no wonder that the World Health Organization has officially categorized burnout as a syndrome and acknowledged how our health is being impacted for the worse.
There’s good news, though. Not only is giving up the “busy” charade better for your mental health, but it actually makes you a happier and more productive .
Go get after it. Map out your priorities. Bye bye busy hello productivity!
