Recharge Your Battery (aka Recharge Youself)

Last night my house was a mess.  By bedtime I was exhausted, frazzled, and additionally stressed over a situation that’s going to take some ‘protexia’ and Divine intervention to resolve.  Ideally, I would have gone sleep with a clean house in order to wake up to a clean house.  However I have learned that my optimal energy is in the morning and to push myself at when I have zero energy reserves isn’t worth it because I will be a lot less productive than when I am well rested.

Accepting the fact that things WILL GET MESSY is not always a message one wants to hear.  There’s always going to be housework. Mt. Dishmore, Mt. Laundrymore, the toy balagan to tidy up.

Even when an organizing system is in place there will always be the maintenance aspect of keeping home. For the most part, people do not like to maintain things because it takes WORK.

Take a break.  Let down your standards. Chillax.  Wait until you have the energy to tackle the task, as it will go much quicker.  The situation can be compared to a cell phone with 1% battery left: charge it immediately or the phone will shut off.  Your body is the same way. Recharge yourself when you’re feeling “low battery”. Functioning at 1% isn’t worth the consequences.

Once again, it’s bedtime.  I straightened and found the floor.  The laundry is put away.  The dishes will greet me in the morning.  G’nite and thanks for reading.

(**I was waiting for inspiration for a title.  I accidentally published the post without one and then had to update the post.  For those of you who get The Klutter Koach emails, you will receive the untitled version in your inbox which will be seen as {New Post}8885)  As I was saying about recharging…I think it’s early to bed tomorrow night…
