Beating busyness

Improve that too-much-on-your-plate feeling with these small, simple changes, says Oliver Burkeman

The last word on…

Ask anybody how they’re doing these days and the most likely response you’ll get is, ‘Oh, you know…busy!’ Partly, it’s a boast, because we’ve come to think of it as a sign of our importance. Yet, there’s nothing pleasant about feeling overwhelmed, and there’s evidence to show that we’re not actually busier than previous generations; we just feel busier. This is good news, because it’s a sign that the problem is psychological, which means the answer may be psychological, too. So, it’s possible to escape the sense of overwhelm, even in the midst of a full-on life.

About Psychologies

When we change our minds, we change our lives. This issue explores what happens when we do just this. What if you didn’t resign from a job, but could change the way you feel about it? Or what about finding a new way to open up to love? Or, what happens when we challenge the judgements we make about ourselves and each other? Read the astonishing life-changing effects of what happens when you think differently.   Change doesn’t always feel positive - you're made redundant, or your relationship breaks down, or we lose someone we love. And it's awful. Yes, we don’t always have control over what happens out there, but we always have control over how we react to it. This issue explores how to change our perspective to create the world we want.
