Homemaking motivation for when you feel like, “I Really Just Can’t!!!”
I’m always trying to find homemaking motivation for even the small tasks. It is so overwhelming sometimes as a mom whether you stay home, work, work from home, homeschool, or any combination of these. Its easy to get behind on one chore or task and that spiral in to feeling of chaos and lots of anxiety. From my experience this can create a vacuum effect on the couch and it next to impossible to move an inch. I often feel this way but I have learn a few tricks to help me move past this. However I have a lot of work to do myself and some days I still feel like I just cant seem to move. So before you succumb to the chaos and anxiety, and you feel like, “I really just can’t” try these tricks.
As a work at home mom it can seem like a challenge to get through the day feeling like you haven’t accomplished anything. The truth is you have probably accomplished so much and you don’t even realize it. This is not only true for work at home moms but just moms in general.
The reason you feel this way is because you didn’t accomplish enough if any of your top priority items. This can be avoided if you write down a schedule and list out your tasks lists by top priority to lowest priority. I do this every morning after my bible time to see what I have going on for that day. I start with my routine everyday items and list the extras or more specific items. Then I fill in the rest of the day starting with top priority in a realistic time block. I say realistic because if you cram to much in, you are likely to do only half of that. Which lowers the chances of you getting the important stuff done. Follow these 4 steps to the perfect WAHM schedule. [Read more…]
Before implementing these 6 strategies, my life was a never ending day of chaos. Trying to homeschool, work on my blog, work on my craft business, play with the kids, clean the house, and make meal was not something I could accomplish. Doing my job as a homemaker, mom, and wife are my top priorities and the work I was doing was not reflecting that. I was taking way to much time away from my family hyper focusing in my blog or craft business. On top of that I was getting upset at my poor kids for interrupting me when I was working. That was my wake up call. I realized what I was doing and decided I needed to take action quick. These 6 strategies have brought me back to center and allowing me to focus on what is important while being able to balance the rest. [Read more…]
The first room in my clean with me series was bathrooms you can view that here. Next on the list is bedrooms. Bedrooms should really have this yearly spring clean twice a year instead. We sleep here every night and dust builds up behind furniture and on other random places you don’t always think of while you are doing your weekly cleaning. This causes you to have more allergy issues. For me I know when I need to change the filter or clean the ceiling fan because my allergies get bad. This can cause sleeping issues and that’s never good. This is how I spring and fall clean my bedroom. [Read more…]
