How to stop being busy all the time: 4 Steps to decluttering the calendar

We all do it - we say "yes" to one thing, and then another. Before we know it, our calendar is swamped! It's easy to become too busy. And in an age when "busy" is valued as "important," it seems people wear their "busy" as a badge of honor. I've even heard people comparing how busy they are!

  • building friendships

  • inner peace
