It may sound stupid but one of the things that puts me in a bad mood is to realize that I’m missing something.
Being married and having Barbara almost everyday out for work, I’m in charge to do the shopping, thus I have to think forward and know days before what we will need: bread, milk, butter, meat, vegetables, fruit, cheese…
But there’s more.
During the day you may also want to have a snack or simply have a soft-drink. There’s nothing worse than realizing that you’d like a piece of chocolate and you don’t have any in the cupboard. The consequence: you’ll miss it, you’ll think that being at home allows you to go out and buy some and then come back without worries… Well, you’ll lose at least half an hour or more of your productive work.
My advice: when you do shopping don’t forget to buy some sweets, snacks and the drinks you like the most!
And if you’re a smoker (don’t jump on me, I am) don’t forget to buy cigarettes as well!
I already said that it may sound stupid, but you have to think that the time you spend on unproductive activities you will have to recover it in one way or another.
