I've been feeling a bit down lately, a bit depressed, a bit burnt out. In general, I felt like I had no time for anything.
I stumbled upon a TEDx episode, maybe you've heard it too: on "How to stop languishing and start finding flow" with Adam Grant. It hit a sweet spot, as I definitely feel like my "to do" list never seems to end. Even when I cross items off, my list keeps repopulating with more to-dos 😵💫
Following Grant's advice, I'm starting to make a list of "To don'ts" - the responsibilities, habits and hobbies that use up my time in ways I don't love. It's harder than I thought! So here's what I've got so far:
- Scrolling mindlessly through social media.
- Keeping the phone in the bedroom.
- Saying yes to please someone when I want to say no.
What are your "To don'ts"?
