"This disease of being “busy” (and let’s call it what it is, the dis-ease of being busy, when we are never at ease) is spiritually destructive to our health and wellbeing. It saps our ability to be fully present with those we love the most in our families, and keeps us from forming the kind of community that we all so desperately crave." By OMID SAFI - The disease of being busy
Omid Safi has written a wonderful article about being busy and the effect it has on our every day lives. There is no simple solution to this problem but I agree that a very good start is to do as Safi suggests:
"Let us insist on a type of human-to-human connection where when one of us responds by saying, “I am just so busy,” we can follow up by saying, “I know, love. We all are. But I want to know how your heart is doing."
