During tidying I often get distracted and never finish a task, I see something else and go to tidy that. Any tips for this?

Set a timer for ONLY 5 minutes. In that 5 minutes you stay absolutely focused! Increase the time GRADUALLY! Keep a List in your journal or someplace handy. Write down what it was you WANTED to go do, but didn’t. Likewise I keep a food journal which helps make fasting easy for me.

When I’m fasting and I see something I REALLY want to eat, I write it down In my food journal . I don’t write down WHAT I ate, I write down what I WANT to eat.

If I’m at a reception and all the goodies look delicious I just ask if I can take a plate home with me. I’ve never been told NO. Then I can eat it when it’s eating time. I never feel cheated! That’s key in a healthy mindset!

Whatever your hands get into, finish it, before you do another one. You will find yourself complete more things if you focus on one job at a time.

Switching and multi-tasking will only make you distracted and forget things.

I have a problem with doing this. Make a dedication to do ONE room and only one a day or on a specific day of the week. If it helps, turn on a timer and when it goes off just stop what you’re doing and resume the next day. I know we can get caught up in tidying or other things in life and then we just keep going. Limit yourself and set rules!

I tidy up before bed and to counteract the going from one task to the next I have a list of things I check, such as dishes, typing up my desk, making sure trash isn’t overwhelming and putting laundry in the hamper. So if
I do jump from one thing to the next I still have several things that I have gotten in the habit of checking and those normally get done even if I don’t complete one before starting the next.
