"A day off is meant to be for relaxing, not running errands and ticking off a never ending to-do list. It's time to reclaim the couch" Sali Hughes, Red
She offers these tips:
*'Not-to-do' Lists (write down the things you find pleasurable purely for pleasure's sake)
*Schedule the Nothing (plan inactivity, put relaxation alongside other dates in the diary)
*Set a Time limit (if absolutely necessary, do chores, put only until 12 o'clock, then relax)
*Get Out (Don't stay at home, chores will suck you in, get out and relax!)
What does this mean for me and my week off? Here is the updated post-it plan on my wall.
btw - is there nothing that can't be solved using postit notes? :-)
I have 3 categories and the aim is to get a balance of all three. Today has been mostly should-dos!
hearts = feel good
flowers = want to do
arrow = should do
