Yesterday’s experiment was a success.
At the end of the day I felt both relaxed and accomplished and I didn’t feel like I had pushed myself too hard.
I have no specific plans today so I am going to keep my brain mostly unleashed and allow myself to move from task to task in whatever order makes sense.
I’ve already put some clothes on the line, dusted a few shelves, and did a little reading.
Now I’m going to read a bit more while I drink my tea and then I’ll dust a few more shelves.
I’m really hoping this approach not only helps me relax but also helps me get used to working on a task without the need to ‘get it done before I forget.’
PS – I know that relaxation and housework don’t really go together but housework needs to get done and this approach keeps me from spending my whole day hyper-focused on it.
