I can’t, I’m too busy: the self-care avoidance strategy we’re all guilty of

 In Yoga

We live a fast-paced modern world. We rush from one thing to another, with to-do lists that never end and time that doesn’t extend to ourselves. And one of the most important parts of keeping us functioning at our best is the thing we usually spend the least (if at all) amount of time on! I’m talking about SELF-CARE! 

And the greatest excuse we use… I can’t. I’m too busy.

Do you want to catch up for coffee?
I can’t, I’m too busy.

I started a new yoga class, you should totally come & try it out with me!
I can’t, I’m too busy finishing off a project for work.

I’m finishing work early tonight, let’s go out for dinner.
I can’t, I’m too busy folding washing.

Oh, look babe, cheap flights to Bali, time for a holiday?
I can’t, I’m too busy at work. They’ll never give me time off.

Mum, can we go to the park and play.
Not today, I’m too busy cleaning the house.

Come have dinner with your mum this Sunday.
I can’t, I’m too busy getting the kids ready for school.

Mum! Mum! Look at me! Look at me! I can climb a tree!
I can’t, I’m too busy.

How often are you responding to moments in your life with “I can’t, I’m busy”?

Finding balance in life is hard! But, next time you catch yourself saying “I can’t, I’m busy,” ask yourself if what you’re “busy” with is really worth turning down or missing out on moments with loved ones or living your life. What are you really avoiding by saying you’re “busy”?

You get to choose what your life looks like. You get to choose what fills up your time. And you get to choose whether you spend time and energy on your desires and passions or on doing the things you feel obligated to do. You get to choose!

What will you choose today 🙏🏼
