People like to be busy, they're happier. A lot of it is self-imposed, otherwise without a justification for an activity, we'd choose idleness to activeness.
We feel too busy, some of it is unnecessary, why?
Most people, have a scale from utterly bored to burned out, with the ideal level of busyness lying somewhere in between.
Some of us are happy when we're closer to "relaxed", others need more activity.
The shift can be thought from the busyness-happiness calculation: First, what your ideal set point is, and second, whether your current situation is above or below this optimal set point.
Even when we want to be busy, it's not just to do things, we need a reason. That compelling reason makes the difference, it can lead to either overcommitment or inactivity.
Goal-setting and planning are vital because they’re the tools we use to find motivating activities. Making concrete improvements to your life may be secondary to the well-being boost of having a reason to be optimally busy.
Out of 24 hours, we all have the same amount of time each day but use it differently. If you feel you lack time, check for conflicts between your priorities.
Intrinsic enjoyment from an activity is essential when you're busy. This ensures your psychological needs are met in the little time.
If you intend to work full-time, stay in shape, spend quality time with your kids, and keep up with friends and hobbies, you may find there’s not enough time to do all of those to your desired standard. The result is frustration due to expectations.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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.
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!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
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!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
