I am sure you are thinking, “here we go, another mom post” but really this applies to everyone, single, married, lone wolf, whatever. I know personally that I can easily loose track of time and I am trying to make a effort to do things for myself everyday. To be clear when I say making time for yourself or doing things for yourself I am referring to small tasks that make you happy or tasks you enjoy doing that give you a feeling of accomplishment. For me there Is nothing worse than going to bed at the end of a long day and feeling like I accomplished nothing that fulfills me. Below are a few things that I do for myself, some daily, some a few times a week – you might be surprised!
– Clean the kitchen: I know you are now googling the nearest physiologist to have me examined, but pause a moment and hear me out. I love the smell of this new cleaner we bought and coming downstairs to a clean kitchen every morning starts my day off on the right foot. The older I get the more I love to clean and organize because it gives me such peace and satisfaction – Cliche I know!
– Vacuum: the feeling of freshly vacuumed carpet under your feet is so great! I love that it cleans up the house and also I get huge satisfaction from seeing all the vacuum lines! I also really love to mow the lawn, I am thinking that I should buy a zen garden so I can rake to my hearts content, lol!
– Change the sheets and make the bed: I know this sounds like another chore but fresh sheets and bedding is seriously one of my favorite things in the world! After a long day at work, then play with Ro and putting her down taking a shower and getting into bed with clean crisp sheets sounds like literal heaven 😍
– Making a list of tasks: this is something recent so I don’t do it as often as I would like, but I have so many thoughts and ideas before I go to bed I write them down for inspiration later when I feel stuck. The time before I go to sleep I will also read, or catch up on the news.
I would love to hear about the things you do for yourself and if some are cleaning related like mine! 😁
Hope you are having a great day wherever you are
