Taking Care of Business Night

I am not a person that lets a junk pile accumulate in my house. Physical clutter manifests into mental clutter and all that. Most nights after work I go to the gym, commute home, have dinner, get ready for the next day, and go to bed. Not a lot of maintenance is required for that. But the past few weeks have been super busy. Neither John or I have been home that much. So tonight after work I took care of all the stuff that has been accumulating. I call it a Taking Care of Business Night. I know it’s not glamorous at all, to do or to write about really – cleaning out the fridge, sorting through the mail, taking out the recycling, unloading the dishwasher, organizing my Spotify playlists, filing the bills, updating my podcast queue, making my lunch for the next day, charging my phone, etc. I find that these things are the stuff that really bog me down in the day to day. But I also find myself able to stay in the present moment when I’m completing these tasks. It feels so good to just get stuff done, doesn’t it? Taking Care of Business Night is about a few things: 1) dedicating just one chunk of time to the unfun day to day tasks, 2) getting stuff done so you can simply let it go once it’s done, and 3) the sense of accomplishment that comes from feeling productive. I know it’s low hanging fruit but what is better than an instantaneous feeling of achievement? I’ll take success, no matter how small. TCB!
