The Stress of Trying to Do It All is Overwhelming

Stress is a part of all our lives, especially if you and your spouse or partner are both working and you have a family. As a busy business professional, you’re focused on what you can offer your clients and how you can make their lives easier. Who has time for a personal life? Certainly not you! So you do what seems to be the easiest thing to do at the moment and push all those personal errands and relationships off to the side. But at some point, something has to give. If you are beginning to feel like the poster child for Stress Awareness Month, celebrated this month, it may be time to start thinking about injecting some “fun” time into your schedule.

If you have too much to do, call California Concierge, the businesswoman’s wife.


How do you know if you need more balance in your life? Well, if you’re finding it increasingly difficult to:

  • Get out of the house on time in the morning, especially if you have kids.
  • Eat healthy because you find there’s no time to cook.
  • Have a relaxing meal or find yourself rushing through your meals or eating on the run.
  • Carve out together time with your spouse or family.
  • Find time for exercise.

You may just need to bring a little more organization into your life.

Stop the Madness! Get the Stress Out of Your Life.

A survey by the Huntington Post found that of the 1,000 people they spoke to 77% were regularly stressed, and nearly 50% experienced stress over the cleanliness and organization of their home. Much of that stress comes from not having enough time to do it all—cooking, cleaning, working out, spending time with family and friends, and doing errands.

To relieve this stress, many professionals in the Los Angeles area have contacted companies like California Concierge to help them organize and uncomplicate their lives.

You can easily de-stress by following some of the tips below. Remember, a key to organization is being proactive and planning things out. Here are some tricks of the trade:

  • To get out of the house on-time, stress free:
    • Lay out your clothes, the kids clothes, lunches, baby bags; school bags—anything you need to take with you in the morning the night before.
    • Ask your spouse to help with child duties.
    • Set bedtime routines for yourself and the kids, so that everyone is less cranky.
    • Keep breakfast to no-cook options such as cold cereal and foods that can be prepared in a toaster oven or microwave.
  • To eat healthier meals:
    • Make a week’s worth of meals all at once. Individually wrap them and then store in the freezer or the refrigerator.
    • Keep your refrigerator stocked with salad items, and other easy-to-prepare meals.
    • Subscribe to a food service that can deliver prepared meals to your home.
  • To avoid eating on-the-go or rushing through meals:
    • Keep nutritious snacks such as almonds, an apple or yogurt at work or in your car.
    • Schedule your day so that you have at least a half hour to eat your meal. The only reason you have to do one thing after another is because you’ve allowed it to happen that way.
  • To make more time for those important people in your life:
    • Plan a family night even if it’s just one weekday evening a week. Have a meal together. Don’t plan any business meetings or attend any networking events that night. Just enjoy your family.
    • Decide on a fun family event once a month, whether it’s hiking, going to a museum or taking a day or weekend trip. Do something together. You’ll find that your new relaxed attitude and will bring a new dynamic to your relationship.
  • To find time to exercise the stress away:
    • Set time aside in your schedule for an exercise routine. It doesn’t matter if it is walking for 10 minutes in the morning before you go to work, taking a yoga class or doing cross fit. To stay healthy, keep your mind clear, focus on yourself for once; stay active.
Be together.


Play together.

California Concierge gives me the freedom to have fun in my down time. I use them for everything from booking tours for my visitors to weekly grocery shopping, errand running and overseeing home repair projects. They even delivered personal items to me from home when I was hospitalized and cleared the refrigerator of items that would spoil before my return. They are life savers.
