I need something to fill my time

I can’t read for long. I stop comprehending when it is more than a few short paragraphs. I have stop watching tv for many years. I think it is too hard for me to sustain the attention. Actually it is difficult for me to do anything. But i dont feel good having nothing to do. I have some progress in getting a part time job and daily exercise. Okay I’m ready for more. I will do the laundry and vaccum clean my home tomorrow. I think it has to do with my disorganization. I often feel a little all over when i want to clean up the household. Any tips for getting started on cleansing and household chores? My mom is too good to me she never asks me to do this.

It’s a just do it kind of thing for me, a thing of the moment.

Good for you for all that progress. I’m happy for you.

I had collected some really good books to read (at the thrift stores) although I hardly ever even opened them up, they just sat there on a shelf where I could see them when I was watching TV. I am often preoccupied with the feeling that there are other things of greater concern that need my attention, mentally anyway, and so I find it difficult to concentrate on getting anything else done, although I really don’t know what that urgency is all about. All I know is that when I am trying to focus on what ever it is I can not hardly concentrate on doing anything physical. If I were just a mind I probably would be happier in a way, but of course we all need what our bodies do and that is to remain active physically, and at least doing what really needs our attention to getting done.

It is always easier to start with small goals. Like instead of thinking “I will clean the kitchen” you can start with just cleaning the surfaces or just cleaning the microwave. Or just tell yourself “I will do some of the dishes” instead of “I will do all the dishes”. When you start by doing just a little it isn’t so difficult to continue and do more.
