Do you revisit your schedule, prioritize and eliminate activities?
I like to pretend I have a time frame for that. My time comes when I’m at the end of the rope and it’s burning at both ends. One morning I slapped my forehead and said, “I don’t have to do all this. There is an easier way.”
I gave myself permission to take the time to organize, eliminate and refine one of my activities. I want more time to write, read books and crochet. Think about how much time we spend scrolling social networking. I can’t bear to watch television because the commercials bore me. I love entertainment, but even that I must limit how much Netflix to allow myself.
Mayo Clinic web site is my go to online resource for everything, even more so as I age. The experts take each body system to tell the reader what could happen. My concern is memory. “Memory tends to become less efficient with age. It might take longer to learn new things or remember familiar words or names.” My sister and I do a comedy act for each other. “Oh you know, it’s that thing that you use…” Twenty questions.
Times up, Meredith. Now you know why I prefer short posts.
