Yeah, I’ll avoid doing it until it has piled up and I have hours worth of crap I should do. Then, there is too much and I don’t do it because I don’t “have time” or have “the energy” to do so much.
No, I’m not here to whine about it! Yes, the above might be a little bit of a dramatization.
So today is the first day in a new strategy. The key word is frequency. Lower the intensity, train for effort, not for tasks. Okay, in english, I’m going to put ten minutes into cleaning, working on or organizing something, anything, every day. Whatever happens to strike me as needing work at that time.
If anyone who lives on their own or is otherwise responsible for most of the cleaning and housework duties has any strategies or advice on making this stuff less daunting (i.e. more “enjoyable”) please trot them out for everyone to see.
