This post is Part 5 of a 10 part series that is an extension of this post I wrote on the subject of the importance of introducing some regular Digital Detox time in our lives. In that post I listed 10 Good Reasons to introduce regular Digital Detox time into our lives. Each week for 10 weeks I will expand a little on each of those 10 reasons listed. If you haven’t already, you might like to check out: Part 1 – De-Clutter Your Mind, Part 2 – Reconnect to the Present, Part 3 – Conduct a Self-Audit and Part 4 – Get Outdoors in Nature. This week we look at:
CHIP AWAY AT THOSE EXTRA ELUSIVE LITTLE CHORES!
We all get in the routine of doing those ‘must do’ chores around the house, almost on auto-pilot. Jobs such as:
- washing up
- making beds
- dishwasher – unstack & restack
- cooking meals
- vacuum, mop and quick tidy up
And we all usually have this annoying little guilt thing going on over a pile of chores that we never seem to get to. Things like:
- cleaning windows
- replacing a dead pot plant
- sorting and tidying your linen cupboard
- painting a piece of furniture
- cleaning out the oven
- weeding the garden
If we could put together a list of those little jobs that we never seem to get to, that annoys the heck out of us, and then during some of our Digital Detox time we chipped away at one at a time ticking them off as we go, how fabulous would that feel?!! Productivity! Efficient use of time! Achievement! Woohoo – feels so good! You could set a goal – one thing ticked off that list per month, or maybe you want to go fortnightly or even weekly!
Well known blogger BabyMac is a girl after my own heart – particularly when I saw that she started her ‘ONE THING‘ series! You’ll see some great examples over on her blog of some of those little jobs that she never seemed to get done but that she chipped away at. Her ‘one thing’ at a time!
What would your list look like? What chores lie awaiting attention at your house? Does productivity, efficient use of time and achievement float your boat too?
Ciao for now,
