I know a question we all ask over and over again. “Is this anxiety?” Or “Is this because I am too busy?” ” I am a mom- isn’t feeling overwhelmed part of it?”
At a conference with Margaret Wehrenberg, Psy.D she shared a concept about controlling too much activity something she called (TMA).
When we get caught up being “too busy” and over scheduled we limit our ability to learn to calm and exercise relaxation skills.
Think about all the things you cram into your schedule (and your kids schedules).
- Identify when/how are you teaching and practicing calming and relaxation skills.
- Pause before you automatically say yes to things.
- Reflect about how procrastination plays into TMA.
