Fly lady teaches baby steps for a clean house. I don't know why I didn't think to apply those steps to other parts of my life.
I have some health issues. Chronic headaches are just one of them. The constant discomfort leads to frustration and depression. The depression leads to more pain. It is a cycle that is hard to break.
I have tried going full speed ahead. "I am going to beat this." And I crash and burn. Done it several times. Full speed crash.
I am trying a different approach this time. A schedule with plenty of rest. Baby steps with little fly missions.
One baby step at a time.
A morning walk with the puppies. School work with the kids. A few steps on my most recent project and dinner for dragon.
Writing it down intimidates me a little but as long as I move and alternate with rest I can do this.
No more full speed ahead. It didn't work but I know this will.
PS. This week I am adding a home blessing hour. With 4 of us home every day, that is 15 minutes of moving fast to get an area clean. No perfect but good enough. Perfection is a disease I am trying to cure.
