It’s a Mad, Mad March
It’s almost spring, and with it comes a beautiful soundtrack of a few more birds in the trees, kids playing in sunny yards and neighborhood sounds of mowers and rakes. And, if you’ve got basketball fans in your house, add to that spring soundtrack hours of TV announcers discussing brackets, fans cheering in packed basketball arenas, and the squeak of players’ shoes on shiny court floors. The “Madness” of this month is truly exciting – with bracket-forming, team-cheering, and plenty of office discussion. However, March can also bring a truly different kind of madness. Between Spring Break planning, the Easter holiday, quarter-end deadlines, preparing for school finals, the looming Tax Day and the mountain of Spring Cleaning you’re itching to get to, March Madness starts to take on a whole new meaning. How should we handle feelings of being overwhelmed as they come? What do we do when our to-do list is so long, we barely have time to read it, much less tackle its content? Fortunately, we have some relief to offer. NO, we don’t plan on coming over to dust your blinds or file your taxes, but we do have three ways to tame your inner March Madness.
