Life and getting through it is pretty hard right now. Also it’s such a busy time. There may be some who are able to stay at home with kids and then there are other families that are working even harder because everyone else is able to stay home while covid-19 goes through everyone’s lives, changing almost everything we have ever known. So while I am feeling completely overwhelmed with work and keeping everything as normal as possible, life steps in and says “Hey, here’s another monkey wrench.”
In the past I have felt overwhelmed trying to keep focused on my to-do lists. So in the past I have worked on each item on my list for 10 minutes. Keeps it short and simple and helps to get everything done, just a bit more slowly. In that aspect I am pulling out the “power of twos.”
I have wanted to file my nails for about two weeks now and do not find the time. This morning quick before my shower i filed 2 nails. Just two, tomorrow I will get two more. I put away two blankets and two pillows that were out of place on the living room furniture.
My usual two items that I do every morning are laundry and dishes. I also am trying to fit in cleaning all the ceiling fans as well as washing all the windows. Well tonight instead of being overwhelmed with all the windows I am doing one of each. A total of two each day.
In preparation of a parent moving in. I am cleaning out my craft room. It can be a very daunting task, but each day I take two things out of the soon to be bedroom. Today it was two bags of sand. One in each hand came down to where all the frequently used craft items are going. Two things off my list.
