Something I do to keep myself in check is to before I do something I ask myself if that thing I'm doing is something I would want my children doing and if the answer is No then I stop doing that thing.
It is very easy to want to be on top of things. But sometimes you just can't be and its not always easy to give yourself a break and relax for a minute.
It's important, not easy.
But it gets easy if you practice.
It's good sometimes to walk away from something to gain some perspective.
Even if it's only for a minute.
Sometimes you walk back into a different situation than you remember.
