Welcome to the Getting UnBusy blog!
My name is Catherine and I’m a forty-something mother of two nut-job children who I love like crazy, wife to a hard-working and handsome technology genius, and a veteran of the corporate workplace.
As a professional woman with a twenty-year career under my belt and two kids, I somehow didn’t feel I had it all – quite the opposite. Scared of another ten years passing me by feeling worn out, stressed out and missing out on the best years of my kids’ lives, I made the big decision to resign from my job to focus on my family.
You know what though? Although I gained some breathing room and eliminated some big stressors (and a paycheck), I found I am STILL BUSY. The days continue to fly by while my house remains a disaster-zone and I still have the sense that I’m not quite on top of it all.
In this blog, I will be sharing my experiences and lessons as I go through the process of becoming UnBusy: the products and systems that help me be more efficient at the things I have to do, and the guidance and advice that help me find the mindset to be present and enjoy the best that life has to offer.
Whether you’re a stay-at-home parent, a working professional or a combination of the two, I hope you’ll find something useful in the blog to help you find the same.
Becoming UnBusy doesn’t mean doing less or being lazier – it is the art of being productive and engaged in what you do rather than succumbing to the daily grind and wishing your days away. Goodness knows each day is precious, I want to be grateful for every single one of them.
