Sounds like this could be mainly an issue of getting these tasks and activities into proportion. Some things do "have" to be done. You can't eat supper before preparing and cooking it, so do so or go hungry. And urgent things need to be done urgently.
But you seem to be describing a rather obsessive pattern, perhaps. Its good to finish clearing up after a meal and dealing with major house mess before relaxing, but how long should that take ? Unless you're an amazingly messy cook, maybe 10 or 20 minutes ? We're not talking about re-decorating or re-painting the lounge before you settle for the evening, surely ? Can't you do whatever's really eneded and still have lots of time left for relaxation, hobbies, etc ?
As Maria says, some chores don't need to be done every day. And if there are others sharing the household, they must also share the chores.
