Being “busy” wrongly demonstrates value

Being “busy” wrongly demonstrates value

When you ask most people how they are doing, they will respond by saying they're busy. Being busy is seen as a currency in our society. We've cultivated the myth that busyness is the same as value, which equals worth.

While we're struggling to maintain this status, the stress of busyness is leading to major public health concerns.

More concerning is that if we think of ourselves as busy, we make ourselves victims. "I have too many things to do that are out of my control. I feel overwhelmed."

Changing our perception

Messaging and language can shift how you think about things.

If we view our schedule as "full" instead of "busy", we can regain control and reframe our entire day. Being "busy" means you're running nonstop. But "full" means it is rich, happy, and content.

How your mindset can change

How your mindset can change

When you view your life as "full" instead of "busy",

  • You become grateful for all the different roles you play.
  • You learn how to prioritize. You view everything on your to-do list and decide if it adds to your day being full or detracts from it.
  • You take back control of your life. When you live a full life, you're content.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
