One of the easiest ways to keep sane and enjoy life is to just do it. There is no time like the present, and nothing is keeping you from doing anything at the present moment (unless there’s a gun to your head). There is nothing more frustrating than walking into a room when there is shit everywhere.
Scenario: Felt really motivated some random afternoon and after drinking a cup of coffee and listening to the Rocky Theme, you feel invincible and ready to take on anything in the world, i.e: cleaning. So you sweep the kitchen, do the dishes, vacuum everything, do the laundry, etc. At the end of the day there’s nothing that you want to do but drink a beer, so you crack a refreshing silver bullet and bask in all the glory.
Problem: One beer turns to six, six turns into friends coming by, Domino’s ordered, pass out drunk, and wake up with an even more grandiose mess.
Solution: As soon as the little voice in your head says, “I should probably clean this.” Do. It. And when you’re done take a nap and enjoy the cleanliness. Next time you make a sandwich, put your dishes in the washing machine (did I mention rinse them off?). Next time you get in from a run put your shoes in their rack and your dirty shirt in the hamper, this will allow the majestic clean nature that is usually a convenience to become the standard.
Enjoy your new pad.
