Being busy isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but being “too” busy can often be unsustainable. Being too busy can lead to feeling overwhelmed, exhaustion and lower productivity in the long run. Here are our 5 top signs that you might be too busy:
You can’t remember the last time you took a day off
Taking a rest is essential to maintaining productivity. If you can’t remember that last time you took a break from work, you may be overloading yourself. Giving yourself a proper break can help you in the long run, giving you a chance to recharge your batteries.
You’re constantly multitasking
If you’re doing work during mealtimes, while you’re driving, before bed, then you may need to lessen your burden. Multitasking can be time-efficient but if it’s invading all of your free time, then things may have gone too far.
You’re late to things
If you find yourself constantly being late, or double booking yourself it could be a sign that you’re saying yes to too many things. Lessening your workload could actually lead to you performing each individual task better in the long run.
Neglecting social life
When was the last time you saw your friends and family? Maybe they even stopped asking for your time? If you’re not able to spend time with your loved ones, this could be a sign you need to slow down.
Are you waking up tired, even when you’ve had a full night’s sleep? Does every minor task feel like it takes all your energy? Are you more irritable than usual? This could be a sign that you have too much on your mind. If you can’t even shut down your mind when you’re sleeping, you’re definitely too busy.
