Keeping on Top of Everything

How do you cope? I’m finding it really difficult to keep on top of everyday chores - washing pots, cooking, shopping, gardening, walking the dog 3 times a day and I’m retired!! It’s getting me down because i cant keep up and things are sliding.

Hi My Life

Your post sounds so familiar. I too am retired now. It seems the more time you have the less inclined you are to do anything. It’s the lack of structure. Hoovering never seems to get done - there’s always tomorrow. Motivation is really a problem. i don’t think it’s worth worrying about things sliding. Does it really matter? We have enough to do just to get through each day without being hard on ourselves.

Take care and know you are not the only one experiencing this.
