I’m not sure if my hammering headache or the thudding of the rain outside my window is louder, but either way, the constant drumming rhythm is adding to my exhaustion. Between an overbearing workload, my never-ending move, and my incomplete graduate school applications, I am feeling overworked and overwhelmed.
But I am tired of letting business run me down.
While reading one of my favorite minimalism blogs, Be More With Less, I came across #theBusyBoycott. Be More With Less is a wonderful blog written and run by Courtney Carver. Her blog focuses on simple living and investing time in the things in life that matter to you. Yes, like other minimalist advocates, she provides tips for decluttering and organizing your life, but the core purpose of her blog is to inspire people to live full, intentional lives. She describes what it means to be more with less:
Be more you. Give yourself all the space, time and love to remember who you are. Living with less clutter, busyness, and stress will help you make the room to do what you need to do. Simplifying my life gave me the space, time, and love to be more me, and the following practices led me back.
Like so many others, I want to have time to do the things that I’m most passionate about – I don’t want to spend hours working through to-do lists and busy tasks, so I was intrigued when I saw her post about the 21-day #BusyBoycott Challenge, a free, online challenge that takes place from September 10th – 30th.
No matter where you’re based or what your ultimate goal is, #theBusyBoycott is meant to inspire you (and help you) to break free from the business epidemic plaguing society. Throughout the course, participants will have access to a private Facebook group, live Q&A sessions with Courtney, and email resources.
Because I don’t want this post to be a thousand words, I am going to delve into Week #1s challenge & insights in my next blog post. And, as recently promised, I will be delving into my major decluttering & minimalism journey, as well as reviewing my many, many summer beauty empties.
What do you think of #theBusyBoycott Challenge? What would you be doing if you weren’t so busy all the time?
