The Done List — #FitnessFriday

to-do-list-nothing

Fitness Friday is all about wellness, and today I’m talking about something beneficial to my mental health and wellness.

I mentioned on Monday that I have a problem with seeing all I’ve actually done. I tend to look at all that’s left to do…and as a mom, wife, full time employee, business owner… there is always TONS left to do.

So, I’ve implemented a new plan…

You already know I love organizing and list-making.

There’s nothing better than Xing out something on your to do list after completion…

Well now, I’ve started a “Done” list.

I like looking at this one more. It just feels better. Seeing a list of all I’ve accomplished hits me in the heart versus seeing the to do list looming (even with items crossed off) which hits me in the gut or the head.

Another benefit of creating a “done” list in lieu of (or in addition to) a to do list…is that I tend to list things that I completed, that I didn’t put on my to do list.

I read to Rohan, but that’s not a to do list item. I’ll add it to my done list simply because, well, it got done.

That makes the Done List that much longer, and that much more satisfying.

It’s only been a little over a week so far, but I love having my Done List.

What have you done today?

Make your list, read it at the end of the day when you’re prepping for tomorrow. I guarantee you’ll feel super productive!
