No matter what our current chronological age, some of us have always had the endurance of an Energizer bunny since we were young, with time and energy left over for self-care, fun, and recreation, even after attending to our daily responsibilities.
However, most of us have found that as we have gotten older, running ourselves ragged has lost its charm and we'd like to slow down, even if only a little bit.
This often requires making different choices about how we use our time and energy, even as we try to continue giving due attention to all major areas of our life -- work, partners, family, close friendships, casual friendships, our own interests and hobbies, self-care, and anything else of importance to us.
• What are some of the choices that we've made about where we put our time and energy? What areas of our life have we given more or less to as we have gotten older?
• Have we fought the urge to slow down or has it been a relief to do it?
• For those of us who feel our responsibilities truly require 110% from us on any given day, how can we scale back to 100% and not sit in judgment of ourselves?
Please remember to avoid using scented personal products before coming to the meetup as some of our members are chemically sensitive.
