As mothers, it’s not a word we utter a lot. Nothing ever seems to be “done” completely, does it?
There’s always dishes to be “done”, laundry to be “done”, baths to be “done”, and the list goes on and on. We are never DONE.
And yet, we should be done with small tasks throughout the day. Why?
Because, according to a fascinating article at Fast Company this morning, saying the word “Done” after completing even small tasks, allows us to feel a sense of accomplishment.
Seriously. They even cite science, y’all. What does it do? It shifts our brain in a neurochemical fashion, creating more serotonin. And we could ALL use a bit more natural serotonin, yes?
Join me tonight and let’s talk about everything you got “done” today. I’m willing to bet it is far more than you think.
See you at 9pm ET on Twitter. Be sure to check back here to follow the live feed if you’d rather not hop on Twitter itself. Thank you, Twubs, for existing.
With that, I’m DONE.
