Include Little Things On The To Do List For An Extra Pick Me Up



My to do list is laid out like my daughters' chore list - since let's face it that is what a to do list is! I include little things that can get overlooked when I get stressed - like Feed cat, Feed fish, etc. I feel like i got more accomplished when I can cross off more things. Somedays I need it.

More Information:

I also break down the chores. Instead of laundry I list it as laundry-whites, laundry-darkes, etc. My oldest has ADD and this helps her immensly because now the task is small and not so overwhelming!

  • If I find myself doing tasks that aren't on my chore list, I jot them down on the list and mark them completed. It let's me know that even if my chore list wasn't finished, I was still busy and productive during the day. - by HIKERJOHNSON
