When we think of addictions we think drugs, alcohol and eating issues; but let me introduce you to another addiction that I keep hearing and seeing across multiple platforms — “BUSY”! Yup you heard me, ”I’m sooooo busy”! And somehow, I think we have begun to applaud, or see that as an accomplishment.


The truth is most of us are busy juggling multiple balls, but when I hear people regularly claiming this statement, I can’t help but hear, “I want you to think I am amazing!”

Don’t get me wrong I think as humans we all have huge capacity to live full, accomplished and busy lives, but there has to be a balance in life? If we are so “busy” – it would suggest that something, if not many things are suffering – health, family, relationships or all of them.

We all only have 24 hours a day, it’s a matter of how we choose to use them.

There is ALWAYS a choice to take “down” time, make time for recreation, get out of the rat-race, downsize, make time for that friend, put the laptop away and play “twister” with the kids.


I haven’t been to a funeral yet where the eulogy suggests that their legacy was “busy”…

What are you being busy with – and do you need to stop?
