The Samantha Leith Podcast Episode 27 - Escaping the Busyness Trap

I used to believe that being busy was the ultimate measure of success. But one day, I asked myself a question that changed everything. What was I avoiding by staying busy? And that’s when I realized the truth: busyness was masking my fears and insecurities. I was missing out on the true essence of life. It was only when I slowed down and redefined my worth that I found balance and well-being. If you’re caught in the busyness trap, it’s time to ask yourself the same question. What are you avoiding?
