I was writing my "To Do" List today.  That list sometimes haunts me.  It is full of things like return these calls, do this article, pick up the dry cleaning and much more.  Some days I don't finish it, some days I finish it early. Either way, it's a list that helps me get some focus so I don't get overwhelmed.  It's my little ritual in the morning to write down what I need to do and then I say "Off I go!"

 

As I was writing it today, I realized it there may be other things I need to put on it.  It is a very serious list, full of things that are very mundane.  I realized I could do something a little different with it to remind me to lighten up.

 

So on today's list, I wrote the following in between my tasks:

  • Laugh

  • Step out on my balcony and take some deep breaths

  • Look in the mirror - see how beautiful I are

  • Call a friend - leave them a happy voice mail if I can't reach them

  • Send an email to someone I haven't talked to in a while

I don't do this to add tasks to put pressure on myself and add even more tasks.  I do this so I can switch my brain out of the day-to-day stuff and acknowledge the other parts of me.  I chose to find a way to touch my mind, body and spirit every day and adding it to my task list helps me find a way to do that.

 

So what's on your "To Do" list today?
