The Happiness Project: Tackle Nagging Task

I had to accept the fact that some nagging tasks would never be crossed off my list. I would have to do them every day for the rest of my life. Finally I started wearing sunscreen every day—well, most days. Finally I started flossing every day—well, most days. An important aspect of happiness is managing your moods, and studies show that one of the best ways to lift your mood is to engineer an easy success, such as tackling a long-delayed chore. I was astounded by the dramatic boost in my mental energy that came from taking care of these neglected tasks.

What I do:
I check my to-do list everyday. It really boosts my spirit every time.
I check one thing off my list.

I try to publish each post in my draft folder. I feel happy each time I see the number goes down.

I create my monthly goal to be reminded of things  I need to tackle in my life.
I like to get one of these.


Any ideas? Feel free to share.
