We all get up early, drink our coffee, and go to work. When we get home we are tired, have bills, and not to mention dinner. We all have more to do in a day other than work, but we need something to do that we enjoy and makes us productive.
Outdoor Work Can Be Fun And Relaxing
Well Spring is here! This is a great time to get outside and feel accomplished with what your do. There is plenty to do like raking leaves, planting flowers, getting your lawn mowers ready, cleaning your car, and more. This helps you out because it will make you feel accomplished. A little tip, set goals for the day. If you want to take care of your yard then focus on raking leaves, planting flowers, and maybe getting the lawn mowers ready. If you do not have the flowers yet then you can set up your garden and go shopping he next day or later the same day. Setting goals to high can make you feel disappointed. If you set goals a little low and get more than you set you will feel well accomplished. If you meet your goal head on you will feel successful for the day.
Save Valuable Family Time
These days are so different then they were twenty years ago. Today there is social networking, video games, television, smart phones, and more. There is almost no valuable family time, and no I am not talking about watching TV. You need to set aside a few hours a week, turn the TV off, and have family time. If you are thinking, “All my kids are grown up and moved out,” well then give them a call and make a plan. One of the best days of the week is Friday. Everyone is stressed out from the week, now is the time to deal with it. Some of the great things I love doing to relieve stress are:
- Playing Cards
- Going Out To Dinner
- Small Party Of Friends and Family (Alcohol not required)
- Having Debates
- Grilling out
Make Peace For Yourself
This may sound a little selfish, but it is not. We all have bad days or jobs that can be really stressful. I always need at least thirty minutes to settle down when I get home. I get on Facebook, play a game, and then get on things that need to be done.
You may be in the same boat as I am. You may feel stressed at home, some days worse than others, so you need something to bring you peace. Like I said it is Facebook for me I grew up on video games. If you are a person who like to read then read a book, if you like to voice your opinion a blog maybe for you, if you like to shop do some web surfing or stop at a store on the way home. You do not need to spend money just go browsing. If you are worried about your children and/or spouse then work it out. The reason is because once you have peace then it will spread like a wildfire among your family and you all will be peaceful and happy.
We all need to be productive everyday and not waste time. It is more efficient if you set goals and met them, make others happy, and you are happy. If we do not stay productive at work and at home then we will be inefficient and feel useless. Always aim high and succeed and then aim a little higher.
