Are you constantly thinking or worrying about the things you need to do at home? Here's a suggestion of how you can take action. Allocate some time to have a thorough look around your home. When you do, try to look at it with the eyes of a stranger. Take notice of the chores or tasks required and make a note of them. Prioritise them with a A, B, C system (A being high priority, B being medium priority and C being low priority). Then formulate a plan that fits in with your lifestyle to undertake theses tasks. Your plan might be that on the weekend you complete one A ranked action, one B ranked actions and if there is time one C ranked action. And you might plan to get 3 A actions done per month, 3 B actions done per month and 3 C actions done per month. Make sure your goal is realistic. Knowing you have this plan (as long as you stick to it and take action when you can) can go a long way in helping to stop the constant thinking about what's not right with your home and can increase your mindfulness. You may also want to make a list of the things you are grateful for around your home. Remember to tick off the actions on your action plain (or 'to do' list) as you do them for an increased sense of satisfaction.
