I’m starting to feel too scheduled in my personal life.
I have a bunch of Beeminders related to specific exercises, personal care (keeping my nails from breaking), doing housework, taking medications, and now my oldest has started school there’s a whole bunch of stuff that needs to be done each day for him (eg, his school does swimming three days a week at the moment, so his swimming gear needs to be rinsed and dried each evening and then alternately packed for tomorrow).
And it kind of feels like I spend so much of my personal time ticking off steps.
But there’s nothing I want to stop doing. The specific exercises are massive for my quality of life, my nails were really bothering me before, the housework is all for daily convenience, and of course, I would hate to think of my son missing out on swimming or other school stuff.
But this is not how I envisaged my life, somehow, checking off a whole bunch of little things every day.
Any advice? ideas for reframing?
