This week is a busy one, but you can make it easier on yourself by using your energy efficiently. This means scheduling things in advance and focusing on finishing projects already underway. You don’t have to work overtime to get everything done, especially if you let go of perfectionism long enough to recognize when something is good enough. If there’s any chance of accomplishing what you’ve set out to do this weekend, be sure to start early! Having said all that, you might decide to stay home for most of the day, not because you’re lazy or feeling burned out, but because it feels right at this time.

It’s best to put the finishing touches on any project that has taken up your time over the last week. Even if you’re eager for some downtime, it would be better to do something relaxing rather than nothing at all (although you might decide on this course of action, depending upon how you feel). You needn’t worry about making mistakes; others will understand if you don’t meet every deadline. Just make sure not to let these people down!
