Our to-do lists just seem to get longer every day. So, to honor Simplify Your Life Day, here are some ideas for streamlining our cleaning so that we can find more time for the fun things in our lives. Until there are more hours in a day, try one of these tips to find more time for you and your family:
- Set a time limit – You don’t always have to spend a whole day or even several hours cleaning house! Set a timer (you’ve got one on your smartphone) for 30 minutes to let you know it’s ok to move on to something else.
- Break it up – Rather than try to tackle the whole house at once, go one room or task at a time. You’ll be amazed how good you’ll feel once something is crossed off the list and when you can move on to something on your “fun” to-do list!
- Ask for a helping hand – Whether it’s a family member, friend or housekeeper, double the help means double the progress – and half the time!
Here’s to a clean, happy, and simple life!
