Everyone's busy, but if your busyness is having a negative impact on your quality of life, it's time to re-evaluate your priorities, writes Maria Lin. For example, you might be in an unhealthy time crunch if you have stopped talking to your friends and family or if you don't get enough sleep, she writes. "If you're not getting at least seven hours per night on a regular basis, make a change today -- even if that means making an excuse to leave the office party early, or letting the dishes sit in the sink overnight," she writes.
