Most people assume I’ve always been excellent at managing time and keeping my stress levels in check. Nothing could be further from the truth.
In a previous chapter of my life, back when I worked as an Emmy Award winning TV news anchor and journalist, my life was a never-ending hamster wheel of stress.
“I don’t have time” was the sentence I uttered most frequently, followed by, “Sorry, I’m running late.”
I had a serious time shortage problem, and no idea how to solve it.
When your stress levels remain dangerously elevated for too long, there are consequences. Years of frenzied busyness took a toll on my health.
Eventually, I reached my breaking point and decided to leave the fast-paced world of TV journalism at the height of my career. I would spend time at home with the kids.
