2Ratchet up joy by re­vers­ing your to-do list!

Woman's World - - News You Need Now -

If, like most of us, you tend to wait un­til all your to-dos are done be­fore treat­ing your­self to a bit of me-time or a pam­per­ing in­dul­gence, stop! Do some­thing you en­joy part-way through the day, and you’ll be hap­pier to­day and ev­ery day. ✤ It works! Re­order­ing your chores to al­low your­self some up-front plea­sure is so en­er­giz­ing, it makes get­ting all those other tasks done eas­ier—leav­ing you even hap­pier when you com­plete them, sev­eral stud­ies sug­gest. Be “good enough”! Put off de­ci­sions be­cause you want to be sure you make the best one? Set­tle on a “good enough” choice! Striv­ing for per­fec­tion saps your men­tal en­ergy and sets off re­grets later if an­other “per­fect” op­tion arises. Go­ing for “good enough” frees your brain of those anx­i­eties, cre­at­ing longer-last­ing con­tent­ment!
