Tiny actions work well for me-hence the book I wrote. However, even tiny actions cant always fight against my “down time.”
I have the majority of my energy in the morning. By the end of the school day, I am kind of like a wet noodle with not much energy. So tiny actions I accomplish in the morning now are
- Washing/putting away any dishes from the night before.
- Hanging up clothes from the night before.
- Tidying up the house/bathroom/bedroom.
- Grading papers.
- Practicing French.
- Cleaning out my car (before I pick up the carpool)
- Folding any laundry that I washed.
This may seem like a lot but I usually get ready in the morning and then have about 20 minutes left until I have to be out the door. Before implementing tiny actions, I would simply leave a lot of these tasks for after school/evening. Then, I would get home and be tired and not get anything done. Therefore I learned to maximize my energy in the morning and give myself a break in the afternoon/evening.
Do you know when your “peak energy” occurs? Can you maximize what you do during that time and cut yourself some slack for the rest of the time?
