For the first 18 months of my daughter's life, we lived in chaos. I struggled with postpartum depression and anxiety and I rarely had the energy to effectively clean and organize our home. I was easily overwhelmed.
However, over the past year, I have established a system in our home that works to avoid that overwhelm. Ch-ch-ch-check it out: top tips to tackle the mess.
MAke Your Bed
If you don't even know where to start, make your bed. It's simple and it's fast; "wow, that wasn't so hard. What can I tackle next?" Plus, it pulls your bedroom together when your bed is made, which helps with overwhelm.
You Can do Anything for 15 Minutes
Pick a chore you're procrastinating; set the timer for 15 minutes and do it. I promise, you can do anything for that short period of time.
Establish a Morning Routine
A morning routine, where you get up before the kids, is like a head-start to avoiding overwhelm. You can drink a hot cup of coffee in peace, read something inspirational, and tackle a cleaning task (hey, you'll feel productive first thing in the morning!)
Create a Cleaning Schedule
Creating a cleaning schedule can seem overwhelming upfront; however, once you've established structure in your home? You're golden. Not sure where to start when it comes to even creating a schedule for your home? The Balancing Motherhood Mini-Course is perfect for you!
For just $33, you will learn: how to create a vision for motherhood and establish goals based on your vision; organize your schedule and calendar; create a cleaning schedule; and develop a meal plan to fit your family.
