Don’t underestimate how much energy it takes to keep our subconscious ticking over.
Even when we stop thinking about something, our subconscious still mulls it over in the background.
That’s why the solution to a problem will suddenly come to us.
Knowing we should do something, whether it’s a work project or the laundry, can weigh on our mind in this way.
Not a conscious burden, but a burden all the same.
Better to get it out the way.
