Take Back Time – 4 Productivity Hacks You Need to Thrive

I feel like I am damn near a quarter life crisis {makes sense because I am 25 in March} and on the cusp of something that leaves me half awake all through the night, could be greatness, could be paranoia. Whatever it is,  I cannot seem to get my brain to turn off. What should I be doing, whats the plan for the week, how will I fit this in–blah blah blah blah.  I work a full time job {8-5p, Mon-Sat}, love this crazy and totally time consuming blog, and try to maintain fit chick/fun chick/health chick, etc life—Everyday battles that I think we all find ourselves in.  I wonder sometimes how my mom ever got anything done with all these things AND a kid {God bless her}.
