TimesicknessWould you like to reduce stress, enjoy yourself more and stop feeling like life is passing you by? Forget being more efficient. A shift in attitude will get you a whole lot more. Its not easy to slice half an hour out of a busy schedule. But even 15 minutes free of interruptions can shift your sense of time for the rest of the day.
The transition from work to home is a good time to do it since a lot us tend to carry our fevered office pace into the evening. Any of the routine tasks of life feeding the cat, taking a shower can be an opportunity to shift into a more gentle pace. Even in a child-centered household you can legislate regular time-outs for yourself. Simply retreat to your room after announcing you are off duty for a little while. Tell them youre available but teach them to respect your privacy.
