Do you feel so busy that your resting state is feeling overwhelmed? This shouldn’t be the case. Life is too beautiful to spend it on being too busy at work, chores, or other things that don’t make us feel happy and fulfilled.
However, if you feel satisfied with your work and other aspects of your life, that’s great! Nonetheless, give yourself some time to breathe and just enjoy the moment. Being busy all the time doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re also productive. That’s something we should all watch out for.
For some of us, we’re addicted to the thought of being busy. We like the adrenaline and the pressure, as well as the feeling of relief that we get once it’s all over.

Writers, managers, journalists, or keynote speakers are often the people you find writing. While it may seem as if they are the only ones who can genuinely benefit from daily writing, anyone can benefit from developing their writing skills.
You can begin by keeping a daily journal. Humans are naturally social animals. While most of us utilize both verbal and non-verbal communication strategies, only a small part of these strategies are required for writing.
When you stop to ask why is writing important, ask yourself if you could survive not checking your social media account, posting a status update, or commenting on other people’s updates of their lives. This also includes the text messages you send through your mobile phone or your written response to the email sent to you by a client.
These daily tasks require you to write, and unless you write your messages very well, you won’t be able to get the right one across.
