Tip # 9 – Stay on Routine
This is how my Friday ended up:
A dishwasher full of clean dishes that has been in need of unloading since Wednesday.
Which resulted in this:
A sink full of dirty dishes – and nowhere to put them- b/c said dishwasher was full.
Elsewhere in the house – this can be seen at the top of the stairs:
Two baskets of clean laundry that have been there since laundry day (Monday) – notice how they have been dug through in search of clothes to wear each day.
Here it is Friday night and I am just now sitting down to write this blog. I just spent two hours cleaning the kitchen and putting clothes away (only to do laundry again tomorrow).
Today’s tip is about staying on routine – especially during the stressful and ubber busy Holiday Season. Keeping up with normal chores, normal dinner times, normal workout schedules -basically – keeping up with normal routines won’t add any more stress during this time. It’s a crazy time of year, and you might have to push yourself a little bit to keep on top of things. But that is better than being grumpy and stressed out and not able to enjoy this time of year.
Happy Friday and Happy Weekend!
