It’s not just my mental load that’s overwhelming, it’s the trying to do it all too. The physical load. It’s time to project manage my life and house back to order, and teach my teenage housemates to put down their phones and do their share of the work.
I have a saying which irritates the teens in my life. It goes like this. “That’s an interesting story you are telling yourself.” Our stories are who we are… and they powerfully influence our actions and wellbeing. It turns out I’m telling myself some unhealthy stories too, and it’s time for some new ones.
