Kari's Kave: Holiday Hangover is Hanging on....

Holiday hangover....bet that got your attention :-)

Just kidding. I don't "really" have a hangover, so why do I feel like I do every day?

I can't seem to get out of the crazy, stressful, exhausting time the holidays bring about. I'm not sick...don't have the flu like so many people these days, thank God...but yet I feel exhausted and stressed and overwhelmed still.

It's January.

Time for new beginnings and a fresh start. I have soooo much I to do, yet can't seem to get on a schedule and accomplish the goals I've set for myself. I have new books to write, my third Fortune Teller Mystery to promote, and freelance editing work to finish. Trying to find the balance with the hours I have is hard.

I am a schedule person. I LIVE for schedules. Yet even I can't seem to get on one and stay on one. What does that lead to? NO productivity, that's what. And THAT is something I can't afford right now.

So tell me, people. How do you get off the holiday hangover train, and get your productivity back?

Desperate minds need to know....

Kari: I hear you! The transition from our long lists of "must-do" for the holidays to "back to normal" is not easy. I think your use of the term "hung over" is right on target. I don't have any easy answers other than my comments last week on my posting about simplicity. I need to have meals simple, my plans simple, and my goals for the day simple until this phase passes.

Keep us posted on your solutions!

Thanks Cassy :-)

I'm working on it! Not easy, but slowly getting back on track.
