ADD cleaning

Sunday, January 27, 2013

I'll admit it. I rarely clean my kitchen. I don't have moldy rotten food or anything or expired condiments. but i don't always wash up the way my mom taught me. I'll admit part of it is because i have a dishwasher so i lazily let stuff set aside.

The other reason is for some reason when i am cleaning i always get distracted by a "quick" task. eventually i have 4 or 5 half done tasks. i feel like i have
ADD issues when i clean,

This will be a good place to continue practicing mindfulness. It is not technically multitasking if 3- 5 minute tasks take 30 minutes because i keep getting distracted. I will learn to keep a neater kitchen to aid in healthier eating and cooking.

    I always felt defective in the cleaning department because multitasking usually meant I'd end the day with a dozen half-done projects and no sense of accomplishment. But what I've been reading lately says that multitasking is probably the worst modern habit, as it takes time to switch gears, then switch back.

Instead, I try to complete one task, or one step of a task, before allowing myself to pick up something else.

    We must be kindred spirits in this area.
I so need to improve as well.

  I can sooooo relate to your "multi-tasking". I used to think that was what I did because I did so many things at once. Since none of them ever got done, I came to the realization that I don't multi task so well. I have ADD tendencies. I will say once I realized I behaved this way, I started using a timer to do tasks.....can't live without it now.
