I recently wrote about the constant war I seem to have with all the “stuff” around here, i.e. my messy home! I was challenged by some of you readers to take it small, finding little bits of time to tackle little bits of work.
You inspired me, and I have been doing small challenges with myself each day this week.
Yesterday was my favorite so far. I set the kitchen timer for 20 minutes, cranked up the music, and told the kids we had to clean “super duper fast!”
Knowing I only had 20 minutes felt very similar to receiving the phone call that your friend is spontaneously on her way over. I moved fast, so fast I was sweating by the end.
The buzzer rang and I stopped and looked around. Wow! I actually managed to have a place which looked fairly decent. Heck, I would not mind a bit if an impromptu guest suddenly arrived. I could not help but laugh though, when no less than five minutes later a trail was already starting to re-form. It’s a mom’s world! 🙂
Now let me hear from you!!! What type of “challenges” help you keep things a little less chaotic around the house? I would LOVE some more inspiration!
Oh, and if you are feeling up to the 20 minute challenge yourself, let me know how it goes!!!!
Need a little extra incentive?? See how many calories you can burn by simply doing housework. Bring on the snickers bars!!
