Is Your To Do List Making You Mentally Exhausted?

I make lists.  I love lists.  I’ll never stop making lists.  I can’t imagine a world without them.  I love writing them on paper, but I also use the ColorNote app on my phone for groceries we need, shows we want to watch, and vintage stuff I’m on the hunt for.  I also have lists for restaurants we want to try and writing ideas. Lists for my ongoing Melaleuca and Schwan’s orders and lists for graphics I want to make and Hallmark Nostalgia Houses ornaments I have. 

I have a lot of lists.  It’s how I sort my brain and it helps me not be so anxious. And I’m not the only one, there are lots of people who love (and good reasons to use) lists.

Plus I love the feeling of checking stuff off and have even written stuff down AFTER I’ve done it just so I can feel accomplished with that check mark.

I break it down into sections.  The top section is the stuff I HAVE to get done.  Then the stuff I NEED to get done.  Then the stuff I WANT to get done goes at the bottom. 

I move around the list and mix it up a little, but if I get to Wednesday or Thursday and only have a few HAVE Tos done then I concentrate on those more.

Prioritizing your weekly lists lets you concentrate on the really important stuff and budgets your time so you don’t end up being overwhelmed and mentally exhausted. 

As with any change in how you do things, it might take a few weeks to get the hang of it, but I promise it works for me and hope it can work for you too.
