Being the final few weeks of winter as it is now, and with the entire spring in the offing, it is not too early to implement some summer rules. Costco and Walmart do it, why not me? It's about the picture below that popped up on my Facebook feed listing Summer Rules.
The post reminded me of how when I was a pre-teen and my mother was seriously ill, my grandmother posted our duties on the kitchen wall. Everyday we had to review them and check them off as we completed them. Those were chores like cleaning our room washing dishes, taking a bath and so on. So I thought, wow, I should post these rules...these "to-do's" and review them each day to make sure I had down as suggested on them.
The list complete with checkboxes is called "Summer Rules", but it could just as well be called "Retirement Rules" or "Better Living Rules" or whatever. The point is, they address areas of our lives that we sometime neglect. And 20 minutes for each is not too lofty a goal. Of course, the sublist entitled "Have You:" is supposed to be common practice, but I imagine we all have at least skipped breakfast now and then. LOL
Anyway, I printed this out and am posting it on my fridge this morning. Nice reminders if nothing else. I can't wait to do each...and the challenge will be to do them every day. I may not always be successful, but I think it will be beneficial to my mental and spiritual health to try.
