Clear the clutter: Move out things that no longer fit, that you don’t enjoy or love, or that don’t meet your present needs. Make some thoughtful decisions about what items are really vital to your everyday existence!
Plan your day: Each evening compile a basic to-do list for the following day. Be sure you are realistic in what goals you can truly accomplish in the limited time you have available.
Get help: If you absolutely abhor gardening or housework, or are not very good at it, consider engaging the services of a professional. It will save you time and money in the long run.
Set priorities: Determine what you really value and strive to be congruent with those values. If you desire to spend more time with your family, are your activities supporting that desire?
Streamline your systems: Look at your errand, mail processing, email or laundry routines. How can you improve on these so that they are not undermining your precious time? For example, run all errands together that are located in the same part of town.
Achieving simplicity in our lives can indeed be a positive, life-changing process. More information on this and other organizing topics can be found at www.napomichigan.com.
