We live in a culture that is obsessed with being “busy”. We like comparing how busy we are with others. We feel uneasy if we’re not occupied and we struggle to be simply present.
There are two questions we need to ask ourselves:
Are we actually too busy and doing too much?
Are we just acting like we’re busy?
If we’re too busy, we need to slow down and ask ourselves why we are doing so much and if we’re taking time to be still.
If we are acting like we’re busy, we need to ask ourselves why? What hole are we trying to fill? What are trying to achieve with all the “busyness”?
