How to not be clingy?

I’m at that point where I just always want to be with my boyfriend. Like he went to the beach for a week and I was going crazy. Plus he was doing dumb stuff so I was worried. Now he’s back and he has family stuff plus working and he’s going to look at a new car so I’m probably not gonna see him for close to a week. I understand that he has a lot right now so I want to give him space. How can I do that?
