Here are 2 simple things that has make me feel better during this long job search.
- I make my bed in the morning.
- I wash and clear the sink of any dirty dishes and cutlery before I go to sleep.
I don’t remember where I first read about this. At the end of a long day when things haven’t gone your way, you need a good night sleep. It just feels better to get into a bed that’s been made. You don’t want the unmade and messy bed to remind you of chores you should have done. Making your bed in the morning is also a very simple way of crossing a task of your to do list.
When you wake up, you also don’t want to face a sink full of dirty dishes. It’s easier to get on with your day without first doing dishes. I just want my coffee and breakfast.
Now I have to admit, I don’t do this all the time. But I always come back to these 2 things and it seems to put me in the right frame of mind.
