Morning in Milwaukee

Little rainy but still great view

Have you ever woken up to a bright morning with great weather, just to find out that you have so much to do?

I often run into this case, and seeing all the innocent children run around having fun makes me want to just go on in and join. Little do we know that life moves on and we can’t always have what we want. However, just because people are aging does not mean we can enjoy life like kids.

Personally, I found a strategy of coping with this type of problem. To wake up and think, “Wow, I have so much to do today, I feel overwhelmed!” makes one feel stressed. Instead, think to yourself: “Ok, what’s the first thing I need to do today?” And do your tasks in chunks. Take small breaks in between like walking around your room or eating some snacks. By the time night falls or your completed all your work, you have the whole next day or night to simply enjoy life. Look out the window, create projects, plant, learn new recipes. Media today, including Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook has caused, especially teens, to be caught up on their phones. Encourage yourself and others to get off because life is not going to last a while. Check Instagram at night or in the morning, and then proceed your day with fun activities and productivity.

Any other tips for coping with a lot of work to get that eventual freedom of play? This is my first post and I hope to continue to write my insights on what I observe stretching to a variety of topics! Thanks for reading:)
