Set Your Intentions
When you wake up in the morning there is most likely some sort of routine that you go through. Maybe it is coffee/tea or water with lemon and then checking message, making and eating breakfast etc. Of course, it will change somewhat depending on the day or circumstances, however, the actions are usually planned and with an end goal in mind. What if all your actions were like that every day? Everything was an intentional and deliberate act with a clear outcome to be realized. Try to set your intentions for the day as soon as you wake up. What are you goals for the day? Think about your objectives and then decide to accomplish them. Live each day with a purpose in mind. It does not have to be a monumental happening. Setting you intentions means to give yourself the power to create a meaning day, month, year...
SMALL TASK: CLEAN YOUR DISHWASHER FILTER. It is easier than you think. Every dishwasher is different, so look up your model online or reference the booklet that came with it if you still have it. This task most likely does not require any tools at all. The filter is generally easily accessible. You may be surprised at how dirty it is even if your dishes look clean. Give it a good washing and make sure any build up of food and detergent is gone. Take a good look at the bottom of the dishwasher now that it is exposed and clean that too. It is a bit of a gross job, but a very satisfying one.
