Dealing With A Busy Life ~ #UpbeatAuthors

Dealing with a busy holiday season is this week's topic for the Upbeat Authors. I find difficulty dealing with a too-busy life more than just around the holidays. However, I've also found that the best remedy is to slow down, take a few deep breaths, and stop to enjoy the moment. How often are we thinking about what must be done tomorrow or checking off the many items on our to-do lists? When we stop to look around at who we're with, what we've accomplished, and what we have, so much of what we deemed important or essential slips away. If one manages to step away from their busy minds even for a few minutes, one can grasp an inner peace that makes every "must do" task seem inconsequential.

What do you do to deal with a busy life or holiday season?
