Most of us are likely overwhelmed by daily life : work, studies, housework, etc. No reason to despair: Every moment can be a mitzvah moment. Not that you can necessarily be involved in one of the 613 mitzvot – or rabbinic mitzvot – every minute of the day. However, the Rambam reminds us בכל דרכיך דעהו – “know Him in all your ways”. We can literally transform every second of our lives into a mitzvah.
Let’s say you are about to spend a day with your aging parent. But are exhausted from a week of work. While you are sipping your morning coffee, have in mind that it is going to help you stay alert and productive to fulfill Kibud Av V’em (honoring parents) more effectively.
The physical act of drinking coffee becomes a halachic extension of the mitzvah!
