The Problem with Mechanical Routines

I’m not sure if Karl Marx ever worked a boring mechanical job, but that’s beside the point. It’s the same problem even the ancient Greeks had, that is waking up and doing the same old boring thing every day. Said like that, the problem might be self explanatory. The writers here at Rezonord, however, think this problem deserves a deeper explanation.

Personally, having worked in construction and restaurants, the writer of this article believes it’s important to fulfil your duty and responsibilities, but seconding as a thinker the writer also believes life is supposed to be enjoyed. In early life, if no one tells you differently, it’s easy to heap up duties and responsibilities on your back for you to perform every day. Once a major responsibility, like raising a child, is placed on your shoulder, it can be difficult to regain that chunk of freedom that the responsibility replaced. Without every thinking, we might assume it’s our duty to heap up as many responsibilities onto our shoulders as possible throughout life. After all, the opposite of doing that is much worse – being lazy and useless.

Now you might start to see why this is a touchy subject with many nuances. The point we’re really trying to make, if it’s not too late, is to maybe try to make each day more exciting by getting rid of mechanical routines that don’t make life enjoyable.

Do you wake up at the same time every day? Do you have dinner at the same time every day? Do you take advice from a random blogger every day? Answering these questions might help to answer the main question I’d like to bring up, which I’ll now ask and answer for you.

What is the problem with daily mechanical routines?

The problem with daily mechanical routines is that following them everyday leaves no room for artistic expression in your character, not to mention unexpected growth and development, or time to enjoy the simple things. If you believe each day will be different than the last, then you don’t need to worry about mechanical routines. It’s people who dread each day that might benefit from some change. Humans are not robots expected to perform consistently time and time again. Even the world’s greatest athletes go through a time of creativity and a time disintegration. A boxer must change the way he fights, even if slightly, to match the style of each unique opponent.

By doing the same boring routine every day, you’re essentially being a robot, because humans, like we said, are supposed to enjoy life. It’s up to us whether we want each day to be fresh, unique and exciting, or perform the same boring tasks every day. If you have a responsibility you must perform daily, one solution to make life more enjoyable would be to approach it artistically each time. For example, even walking the dog can become exciting by taking a different route though the park…

Top 3 Spring Cleaning Tips for 2022

It’s about that time of year where we can catch some sun rays in our own backyards. But we wouldn’t want to lounge on a messy patio or rest in the yard when we know we still haven’t done our spring cleaning. So if you’re like many loved ones I know and are only getting to your spring cleaning now in late May of 2022, then I compiled some tips for you that I collected from friends and my own experience that are tailored for spring cleaning in 2022.

I hope you get inspired, learn something and most importantly enjoy your spring! Now enjoy these top tips.

Top Spring Cleaning Tip #1: Start off with an assessment of your whole property or properties that need spring cleaning, and write a checklist of things you need to get done. This strategy of making a plan first makes things more efficient. If you just start by tackling the first thing in mind, you might realize you could’ve saved hours of time if you had only began one project instead of another or did things in a different order.

So tip #1 is all about being aware of what needs to get done and spending the time to think and plan before jumping right ahead. Especially in 2022 where you might be eager to get things refreshed, it’s important to take your time and and think ahead. Try using a free online calendar to schedule your tasks over a span of several days at the least, if you don’t already have a calendar at home. I also found that a journal or a planner can help you organize your cleaning projects. It’s amazing how much time you can save when you’re well prepared, for this time also allows you to gather all the tools and products you’ll need for various tasks.

Top Spring Cleaning Tip #2: Once you have your game plan, start with the most difficult thing, so long as it doesn’t impede you from doing the other things on your list. Say, for example, my friend’s aunt needed crawl space mould removal service in late April and since this was the hardest thing on the list of all her chores she did it first. By getting the hardest thing done first, you make the whole experience more enjoyable because the work that could be considered more fun is left for last and you don’t have to work knowing you saved the hardest thing for last. But like all the tips here, it’s not necessary, only here to improve your spring cleaning if you wish to use it.

Top Spring Cleaning Tip #3: While you’re actually cleaning and knocking off all the chores on your list, keep reminding yourself why you’re doing this and how you plan to enjoy your space as the weather continues to get sunnier. When I was cleaning my back patio, for example, I thought of how this spring could be the perfect opportunity to reacquaint with old friends I haven’t seen in several years by organizing a BBQ.

Some people do a large cleaning session in spring time purely for the results of cleanliness, but I like to look at is as trimming the fat of winter for summertime fun and festivity. While cleaning you also have the ability to ponder on things, so it can also help to motivate you to get more cleaning done when you remind yourself why you’re cleaning and how much fun you’re going to have in the summer.

These were my top 3 tips for spring cleaning in 2022. I hope you found them useful and make great progress on your projects this long weekend. Thanks for reading and check back on the Rezonord blog for more.
