Previously we asked you, "How do you handle the scramble of life"?

We wanted to know if you were always in a constant struggle to balance everything in your life.

The Mad Life panel discusses this issue and shares their thoughts.

How are you handling all the curve balls that life has to offer?

I try to knit and read when I'm stressed.

I take short timeouts to recharge and do things I enjoy.  Like read, crochet, photography, take a bath.  I am also lucky that I can lean on my hubby and rely on him to pick up the household slack so it's not all resting on me.

Since the holidays are over I am trying to normalize our daily life a little bit more. I like to take things slow and really plan less things during the week or drop down to one errand day a week. The rest of the time is spent at home doing whatever we like.

I agree that we 'choose' to be crazy busy. I would love to just spend more time at home with my kid. I would also love to make that "To-Not-Do" list. That is actually a great idea.
