How often do you claim you “have”  to do something? Think about it. When I did, I realized I feel like everything I do is a “must” (have to). Feeling like you “have to” do things, can make you feel stressed out. Maybe even anxious. In reality, all your tasks are choices. For example: I “have” to study? No, I choose to study, because I want to be good at my job. I “have” to do chores? No, I choose to do chores, because I want a clean house. By asking yourself why you’re doing something instead of telling yourself you have to, you create goals. Goals put your tasks into perspective and give you a sense of peace and calmness whilst checking off your to-do list. Try it. Love it.

  1. This is so true!! It’s something our parents have told us for a long time, but it’s easy to forget. Thinking about things as something you ‘choose’ to do definitely makes it less painful and more appealing!

    1. Indeed, and in reality everything we do IS a choice. If we didn’t WANT money/a comfortable life, we wouldn’t have to work. If we didn’t WANT to live in a clean house, there would be no need to do chores. Everything we do is because we want something. Everything we do has a purpose. If it doesn’t, we should scratch it from the to-do list 🙂
