Can’t catch up


There are many things I want to work on in Scholars, weight loss, organization, time management ….I really wanted to start with weight loss, but then I realized that perhaps some of my overeating was the product of my anxiety about how disorganized I feel all the time. I feel like I can’t catch up with what I need to do in life, and my house always feels like it’s a mess. I have been trying to make myself a schedule of things to do every morning when I do my thought downloads. Still, it seems that I don’t have enough time, and all the things on my list just don’t get done, or if I do clean and organize, then the mess accumulates again. The thought of my room/guestroom/ kitchen not being what I want it to be is constantly on my mind, and there is so much I want to do, and I can’t seem to get it all done. I work in a hospital, so when I am working, the days are basically completely working days; I leave the house at 5 am and get home at 7 pm. I don’t know how to get in a better headspace to create more time. How can I shift my thinking and my actions to get the result that I want. I have to say that I also find that although I am eager to get a lot done at the end of the day, I am tired and frustrated by my seemingly limited amount of energy. Here is my current model:

C: Messy house

T: There is so much to do I don’t where to start, and I won’t have enough time to get it all done. I’ll finish one room only to find that I am tired and need to cook or take my dog for a walk or fit in a workout or get to bed so I can get up early

F: Defeated and frustrated, anxious

A: Inaction, or divided action in a lot of different places that show any satisfying results.

R: More ” to-do lists.”
