I agree that you’ve got to simplify. Stress is very damaging to our health. The more stressed you are, the worse your brain works (especially memory) and the move exhausted you become all the time (not to mention the potential for thyroid issues and a host of other physical issues).

You just can’t tackle everything all at once. Make a priorities list. Ask yourself some tough questions, like “Is time with my kids or volunteering on the PTA more important?” “Is my health or ______ more important?”

Your heart is in the right place, but you’re diluting your efforts by trying to do too many things at once — you can’t do well at anything if you’re stretched too thin and stressed out.
