A few things getting better

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

Well maybe just a couple. Way back I said in a blog that I was going to quit procrastinating. I am happy to say that I have been doing so much better since then. Every day I make myself a list that is more than possible to do. I do this on purpose, so I don't feel the need to get it all done, and to be able to pick and choose. If I make a list with just what I want/need to do today, I get crazy if I don't get it all done. A little OCD goes a long way. With my extended list, I still get to accomplish things without feeling obligated to do it all. If I do it all, so much better!! emoticon

I'm also getting a little bit better at this whole relaxing thing. Never been good at it, so it is a huge challenge. Actually watched tv last night for almost an hour without doing anything else. Except during commercials of course. Still can't sit for those! I'll keep working on that.

Been limiting my computer time, which helps so much with getting things done, which helps with the procrastinating issue, which helps with the relaxing issue. See, it all works together!

    I think total relaxation is a skill that needs to be learned and practiced. I don't think I ever truly relaxed completely until after I retired. I gave up on a "to do" list because I was always frustrated by what I didn't get done. Now, I make a "done" list at the end of each day in my journal. I'm usually pleasantly surprised by how much I've accomplished on that day.
    Stay focused, determined, and strong.
