“Doing it All” is a Modern Lie We get overloaded by the madness, and we HAVE to outsource some of our tasks to someone, or we might spontaneously combust.

So how do you know when you’re balancing things, and when you’re losing it? Honestly, it’s a fine line, but take a minute and ask yourself the following questions:

– Have you been crying throughout the day, sometimes without understanding why? – Are you eating more or less than normal?
