We are all living very busy, fast lives, which means we are in constant hurry and under lots of stress. There is so much to be done during the day, that we sometimes start feeling overwhelmed with intense negative emotions. Things can get even worse if we do not take control over the clutter all around us. Now it is time to put a stop to bad habits and try to do yourself a favor.
For less stress avoid mess
Where to start? Well, there’s a lot to be done, so start with some organizing hacks and keep your clutter under control. Yes, look around you, you can find clutter everywhere, and it is time to start with a new, tidy life. This will help you and your family find more time for yourselves, reduce stress and live happier and healthier lives. It is time for a family briefing and the topic is how to reduce clutter. And it will be much easier to keep your life in order if you hire a standard cleaning service whenever you need them.
Rise and shine, they say
A day starts with morning, but we’ll start with the evening. If you want to have a carefree morning, you ought to prepare everything the night before. Before going to bed, think of all the things that are to be done the next day, and get prepared. Hourly weather forecast is available to everyone, so you can get completely prepared the night before. Think of the clothes and shoes you’re going to wear, matching bags and jackets. No need to leave a pile of cluttered clothes behind when you leave in a hurry in the morning. Match them the evening before, and in the morning simply get dressed, lock the door, and be on your merry way. You will feel even more satisfied when you get back home and there’s no hodgepodge all around because Cinderella couldn’t find her shoe.
Keep your kitchen clean all the time
Another great habit you should adopt is trying to keep your kitchen clean at all times. Cooking is a very serious job which is time and virtue consuming, plus there are lots of dishes used to prepare whatever will make your family happy. But make one rule: everything you use is to be rinsed and put away or put into the dishwasher the moment you’re done with it. This way you will have more space to move and work in your kitchen, which means less stress and mess. Moreover, encourage your family members to rinse their plates and load them in the dishwasher once they’re done eating, so that you don’t have to be the only person in charge of the cleanup. When the family acts together, their bonds get stronger, they have a complete feeling of belonging together and all the jobs are completed faster and more effectively.
Do the laundry regularly
Organize your laundry in baskets and don’t allow it to pile up. Certain types of laundry will pile up faster than others, so make sure you do them more regularly. You don’t have to check your laundry every day, but when you notice that a basket is nearly full it is time to do some washing. Keep your detergents and softeners organized as well.
Set reminders and avoid procrastinating
In this era of high technology, it might sound funny when someone says “I write everything down”, but don’t hesitate to do so if you find it helpful. Use your smartphone to set reminders and create schedules, so you don’t miss a thing. Write down everything you may forget, create your own to-do list and stick to it as much as possible. This will help keep you organized, and you won’t be rushing from one event to another because of “oh my goodness, I forgot!”.
Once you make your to-do list, do everything that is on the list on time. There is no time for procrastinating, because your to-do list won’t become any shorter if you skip to do things. Instead, it will only become longer every day, and you don’t have much time to waste.
