Welcome to before breakfast a production of iHeartRadio.

Good morning. This is Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to not make life a chore. I get there a lot of chores we have to do in our lives, but there is no about you and making tours out of activities we would cheerfully do anyway, even if they weren't on our task list, we can keep his activities completely separate on our to-do list if we'd like to lots of productive people and I am guessing that this includes most before breakfast listeners love planning what they'll do when I'm tracking their accomplishments. This can be great for getting a lot done efficiently. I love prioritize tasks list and done list or what Gretchen Rubin calls to Dallas to note our accomplishments.

There can be a downside of tracking your to do as though sometimes you can end up feeling like all you do is work weather on professional tasks or personal ones if that sounds familiar consider whether you are making life a chore remember that the purpose of task list is to make sure that you get done what you need to don't mix things into chores that would happen. Even if they weren't dictated by The To Do List instead let them remain Pleasures. So for instance, I rarely put runs or walks on my to-do list for the day. I love going outside and exercising in the fresh air. I'm enjoying going for walks with my older kids while they're on brakes from their Virtual School classes. I'm going to do this if it is at all possible.

So while there's no real harm in putting run walk on my to-do list doing so can wind up making my to do list look long which can be intimidating. So I tend to leave these items off.

If you love choosing great recipes to make for dinner, you probably don't need to assign yourself meal planning a late Thursday evening tour. It'll just happen sometime or another when you're puttering around your kitchen and feeling inspired. If you love giving gifts the same is probably true for holiday shopping and sure you may need to look at your schedule to see when a mole Tripper online shopping session Could Happen by gifts does not need to show up on your late November task list. You'll do it without prodding you'll do it. Joyfully. Maybe you need to make a note for sometime in December to make sure you've chosen a week if you need but that's it. Let the pleasure me the pleasure and only make a task out of the last step of the process.

I know of a very productive woman who labels a day on her calendar every month or so free day. She considers that time spoken for enlist her support system for her normal have to do and doesn't schedule anything. No appointments. No kid responsibilities when the free day arrives she does whatever she desires with only one restriction no chores. I think she's on to something. It's easy to feel driven to get things done and cross them off our to-do list and I'd say that if we're feeling like we are never making time for ourselves or never making time for fun. Maybe sometimes we do need to put fun stuff on our to-do list doing so might not just to tap into that same reservoir of drive that makes us get through everything we set out to do.

But sometimes it's okay to let Joyce B Joyce I don't assign myself to read a chapter in a good book. I just do it. We don't always need more to do so no need to make something fun into a chore without a really good reason.

In the meantime, this is Laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time.
