Dylan’s Quote of the Day: Busyness as Self Destructive

“Filling up your time with busyness is another self-destructive avoidance behavior. Instead of facing up to your problems, you can run around like crazy doing good things until your life is overflowing with commitments and obligations and you can’t possibly make time for yourself. Despite all the running around, you may not really know what you are doing. This kind of hyperactivity sometimes functions as an attempt to hold on to a feeling of control or deeper meaning in your life when it seems to be slipping away. But it just may do the opposite by obliterating our opportunities for rest and reflection, for non-doing.”
