I am a busy boomer. Always on the move and always doing more than I need to. I am an energizer bunny. It seems to be a trait of many fellow boomers that we don't want to slow down.

What I have noticed, however, is I get so busy "doing" that I don't take enough time "being." And by doing all the time, I miss out on a lot of what is great about my age and wisdom and being a boomer. In an effort to correct that, I (sadly) have to schedule time on my calendar for relaxation and reflection, which is apparently what we have to do today to get any free time for ourselves. As crazy as that seems, it actually works and is a great tool if you are looking for a way to build time into your day for YOU!
