The weekend did have a bit of a rough start on Friday morning. The whole morning was just off for me. Multitasking and doing 5,3329 things does not work for me.
As I was baking mini muffins in the oven, I was cooking hamburgers in a pan. They started burning and set off the loud fire alarm. While that was going off the muffins were done baking and I had to get them out fast. While taking them out I burnt my hand, then the phone was ringing. Trying to answer the phone part of my knee brace broke off.
After going back to the doctors to pick up a new brace I decided to treat myself. A light caramel frappuccino did the trick!
I believe all those things happened in an attempt for me to slow down. Multitasking leads me to feel overwhelmed yet I still do it. Do I really need to bake and cook at the same time? Do I need to play Candy Crush and watch tv at the same time? Do I need to eat lunch and read a magazine?
My answer to all of that is no. The message from Friday for me was I need to be more present in what I am actually doing.
My goal for the rest of the summer is to focus on doing one thing at a time in all areas of my life.
No more trying to do a million things at once, when they all just come out wrong.
So even though this weekend wasn't the greatest by far, I realized a very important thing for myself. No more multitasking and that is marvelous!
Questions this morning:
Do you get overwhelemed trying to multitask?
Are you always present when doing something?
Ever need a break from technology?
