How bad am I at producing regular posts!?!
So apologies first off, life has been pretty mad and I feel like it’s been non-stop for the last couple of months; the end of the academic year and the start of the next, completing an ongoing weekend course in sports massage, covering 7 classes a week at the gym I go to – even cooking whole foods has been chucked on the back burner!
Lets fill in the end of the academic year and the start of the new one first; the company I work for full time deliver NVQ apprenticeship training and July is the end of the academic year – SUPER BUSY. I think I did around 55 hours in the last week of the month, as well as class cover and 8 hours of education every Saturday and Sunday all I will say is… I was FLAGGING!
The start of the “new year” came in and things have settled a little bit still very busy. I have however taken this week as holiday from work – I’m not doing anything in particular, not going anywhere, not making any plans. and it’s lovely. I’m still teaching on the evenings to cover for the regular instructor but to just wake up and do what I fancy is liberating. It’s not even exciting stuff I’m doing but I can do it in my own time, at my own pace, if I even want to.
As I have real issues with just sitting still I have had a pretty mammoth week, prepping the living room to be plastered at the weekend (and so for me to decorate next week), Ikea shopping and flat pack building (massive guilty pleasure, I’m such a freak), sorting and tidying…. And this is where I am. I LOVE A MAJOR CLEAR OUT.
Today I got shot of 1.5 massive bin bags of clothes, and two of random rubbish gathered over the last couple of years. I have made new storage space and created a space for everything. Hung up, or put away, all of the clothes I have kept on matching hangers and it ordered draws. Built under bed storage and organise sheets and towels, not to mention all of the other stuff I have done.
Why am I sharing this with you???
The enormous sense of satisfaction I now have with what I have achieved from the day. And it’s easy to get. It could be something as small as having all the dishes washed and put away by breakfast. Sorting out “that drawer” and giving everything a place to live. Completing all your washing and putting it away. It could be anything you have been putting off for a while – go and do it. Stop that niggle in your head about the task that really should have been done, and go and get it out of the way! The satisfaction is great and I swear it helps clear your head of other things that might be bothering you.
What do you keep putting off? Share it in the comments and then let us know how you get on with sorting it out and how you feel.
Go on, go and get some strikes through your to-do list.
