On the days when I feel like I "need" to do something around the house (which is most days), I ask myself one question: "How much will it bother me tomorrow?" If the idea of leaving it til tomorrow makes me anxious, I take care of it right away. If not, I leave it and spend time with family or doing other things I enjoy. Most of the time, it's not a big deal to leave it alone. It will all get done eventually.
