Do you ever notice that – more often than not – when you ask a friend or colleague how they are, many of them use exactly the same adjective? Can you think of what that is? It’s the word ‘busy’. It seems that everyone these days is busy!

And I’m definitely guilty of using that word…. except I always tend to give it a little more flare and say “crazy busy.” Then I always find myself qualifying that by saying “A good busy, not a bad busy, but definitely crazy busy.”

It seems that the B word has become our stock response to any enquiry about our wellbeing, replacing the word ‘fine’, which used to be the common reply.

Our lives seem to be getting busier and busier. When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the story of the mason jar and the 2 beers.

Tune in for today’s episode where I tell you all about it.
