“He is twice warmed who cuts his own wood,” goes the old saw.

Our foods seem to taste better when we’ve done the preparation, our home more enjoyable when we’ve clean it ourselves, and our yard brighter once we’ve finished pulling weeds and raking the grass. That’s because it’s satisfying to do things for yourself when you are able.

Your rule-of-thumb should be “Each day I’ll leave my bed with determination to return to it with satisfaction.”
