It's Monday. A new week is ahead of us and we get to make the choice to make the best of it, or give in to the winter darkness and binge on Netflix. Now if you're one of those people who just get stuff done without an internal struggle between chores and taking a nap, don't worry about this tip :) But if you're like me and you have a hard time just getting started on things at home, you've got to try this.
Confession time. Up until a month ago, I was giving in to the couch nearly every day in my free time after work and I'd just feel awful all the time. I'd get home from work, put on my comfy clothes, park it on the couch and take a nap. Nothing was getting done around the house and I was in a major funk. Then someone told me to try one simple thing:
"When you get home from work, don't change into your comfy clothes. Stay in your work clothes, this will keep you in work mode until you finish what you need to get done."
The first day I tried this, I instantly noticed a difference. I got so much done! The laundry was folded, I wrote a blog post, dinner was cooked and the kitchen was cleaned. I couldn't believe what I had the energy to do as soon as I got home just because I didn't get into comfy mode. I'm three weeks in and I honestly feel so much better about life. The best part is that when everything is done and it actually is time to relax, I enjoy it so much more!
That's it! I know it sounds silly but it has seriously helped me. You'll have to let me know if you try this and how it works for you!
