“We are so Busy!”, to quote a friend of mine. It seems as if families are busier than ever. If your children are elementary through high school age you more than likely are feeling the strain. Spring is here and the extracurricular activity schedules are getting ready to start. Along with the business for parents comes stress which is unhealthy for all of us. So what is the solution to the business? Is it to quit everything? Is it to sacrifice family activities, or cut back on overtime? Well though unpopular but wise maybe the solution is not to do it all. Examine you family schedule necessities and priorities. Then evaluate the extras, in light of your priorities. Another thought to ponder is what activities can the whole family participate in? Hopefully as we assess our schedules this spring and summer we will have balanced and stress free families.
