I wanted to write about S L O W I N G D O W N this week because I myself really needed to hear this advice this week. Things have gotten a bit busier at my workplace-- OK a lot busier-- and I was noticing that I was winding myself up more and more. No one was breathing down my throat per se, yet I was getting wound up tighter and tighter, just like a wind-up toy.
Why do we do this to ourselves, I wonder? Because I was pretty sure I wasn't the only one doing this. I think women especially push ourselves to an extreme degree.
