I have a several things (chores, actually) that I do everyday. I have done them so often now that taking care of these chores is a habit for me. You can call it a daily habit. Do you have tasks or chores that you’d like to be sure to do everyday? Take a look at the tasks you really want to accomplish on a daily basis. Maybe something like walking your dog or cleaning out the kitty litter? Walking the dog every morning accomplishes two things it gives you and your dog exercise. Cleaning out the kitty litter on a daily basis helps to combat the odor and eliminates the need for you to completely empty and refill the litter box as frequently. When you take care of the laundry frequently it doesn’t pile up and become a monumental or overwhelming task. Even just sorting the laundry regularly helps. You can see from the volume of clothes if you had better set aside some time to do a whites load or a colors load.
Once you decide which chores you want to do daily start by scheduling one task into your day everyday. When that becomes a routine for you – after a week or two – try adding another chore. Continue this process until you have created the habit of doing the tasks you want to do regularly. I’m not suggesting that you create a lengthy list. On the contrary, your list of things to do daily should only take about 30 – 45 minutes to complete (unless laundry is a task…that takes about 90 minutes total).
My daily habits include walking my dog, watering my plants (I grow orchids and check them daily), tidying the bathroom, and laundry. Write me back and let me know what chores you are going to turn into habits.
