Wednesday Goal: do nothing

I started setting goals as soon as the kids went back to school. I was going to walk three times a week, get the house in order, complete projects, and so on. 

If you haven’t guessed already, I have not been successful in my goals.

I’ve made daily to-do lists on my phone, and I’ve started bullet-journaling to organize my thoughts. Neither one is doing the trick. I’m still stressed about what I’m not getting done. 

I decided to try something new… I decided to schedule myself a “do nothing day” once a week. It just so happens to fall on Wednesday.

It might seem silly, but it has helped. Tuesday and Thursday I’m more productive, and I’m not as stressed during the week.

Mentally, it is nice to accomplish everything on my “nothing” to-do list. 

For now I’m enjoying the quiet restful Wednesday. I knit, crochet, watch a little netflix, make some tasty vegan meals, and decompress. 

Tomorrow I’ll be back to the stresses of everyday, but for now, I’m going to make another cup of coffee.
