It's way too easy to be thinking about what comes next, instead of staying focused on what I'm doing. When I stay IN THE MOMENT, I actually get more done: Things run smoother, I have more fun doing everyday things--I enjoy things more-- and I do a better job at WHATEVER I am doing, whether it is an errand, exercise, cooking or eating... It's actually mentally refreshing!
Tired of not getting everything crossed off that "To Do List" each day?? Instead of doing a To Do List....I now do a "Done Did List"!! What I do is, as I complete or accomplish as task, I ADD it to my list of what I HAVE done that day!
Now instead of dealing with a list of anywhere from 5-10 things that maybe half were not getting done daily, I now consistently have a list of anywhere from 5-10 things that ARE getting done daily.
And best of all? No more anxiety that I didn't get this or that done that is now put off till tomorrow AGAIN...and lots of good feelings that I have this list of what I "Done Did" that day and nothing put over to another day.
I'm doing much better now that I admit when i go wrong. Sometimes I do eat something i shouldn't have. But instead of beating myself up and feeling bad i admit it was not the best thing to do and draw a line under it and get back to doing what i was doing when i was doing good!!
