QUIZ: Are You Actually Too Busy?

Think about your ideal work day. Maybe you would wake up, do a little yoga/mediation, have a hearty and beautiful breakfast. You’d enjoy a big lunch salad outside in a nearby park perhaps. You’d get some errands done after work and maybe take a fun fitness class at the gym. Or you’d go home to a delicious dinner that you pre-prepared the night before. An hour of work on a passion project and a bit of family time or reading, then off to bed at a reasonable hour. Sounds like a lovely day for the middle of the workweek, doesn’t it?

Unfortunately, a lot of us feel like we do not have time to indulge in the little joys of daily living. Why? Many of us claim that we are simply too busy and stressed—with work, responsibilities, family—to take time for ourselves and do what makes us truly happy. But are you actually too busy, or is that just your excuse for not following your passions? Take this quiz to find out:

WAY TO HAVE YOUR PRIORITIES IN ORDER! Sure, you’ve got stuff to do, but you understand how to prioritize. Life isn’t just about work and chores. You know you can never be too busy to stop and enjoy the moment. You take the time to have fun on a regular basis. Go you!

This is the first time in a WEEK I've been able to get on here, and I'm feeling guilty about it because I really should be taking advantage of the rainy day and organizing the rec room (which right now is more like "wreck room" because it doubles as our storage space). Now that we're in plowing/planting season, my workload's about to triple again because of our vegetable garden. So I am definitely NOT moving in the right direction, contrary to the quiz results! UGH.
