Given that by about 1:30 on Monday, I was ready for my head to explode, I thought I’d share some signs that perhaps you might be overdoing things by just a little bit. I hope that this can be a helpful guide to knowing when to slow down, if only a little bit.
Signs You Might be Overdoing It:
- Your head is spinning, and you find yourself speaking in tongues to your children. This is a clear sign that perhaps your are a bit stressed and need to slow down and perhaps reduce your stress level. The children also appreciate actually being able to understand what you’re saying.
- You can’t understand why the cat looks like a duster but simply will not dust the floors or shelves for you. Cats do not like being identified as dusters. The rabbit might not mind, though. Try him instead.
- You’ve started sounding like a chipmunk all the time when you speak.
- Explosion of any body parts. Never a good scene, and the mess is horrific. So, before your head explodes, it’s best to recognize the pressure build-up and back off just a little bit.
What about you? What are your sure signs that you might be overdoing it?
