Consider this scenario — you’ve just met a friend you haven’t seen for a while and they ask you how things are with you.
Based on your current situation, how will you respond? Will you say you’ve been very busy lately?
If that’s the case, then you’re not alone. In our fast-paced world, the majority of people are overstretched, overcommitted and overwhelmed with all the things they have going on in their lives. It has even reached the point where we are constantly exhausted.
The scary thing is that being exhausted is almost like a status symbol. If we’re not busy or overwhelmed, then we must not be doing anything important.
Unfortunately that behaviour is not good for us long-term.
