"We are too busy mopping the floor to turn off the faucet."
~ Author Unknown ~

There is something jazzy and almost addictive about being busy and having multiple things going on at once, burning the candle at both ends, and just generally living "on the edge," as they say. But it's the edge for a reason- hard to stay on for too long, and easy to fall off. This kind of high-intensity living is not sustainable and not particularly healthy. It strips us of soft quiet moments and a feeling of peaceful ease.
     Nonetheless, life circumstances do require it at times, so when that's the case, let's step up, and when it's not, let's stand back. Balance is the key, and good health, and three square meals a day with a good night of sleep. 

I amp up when I need to, and still take time to relax.
