FlyLady - Pagan Style - BabySteps Day 21

In continuing with FlyLady's Babysteps, here is today's babystep!

Morning Routine

  • Make Your Bed!
  • Get up and get dressed to lace-up shoes; fixing your hair and face
  • Look at your posted reminders in the kitchen and bathroom.
  • Recognize the negative voices and change them. Remember, you are FLYing now!
  • Put out your Hot Spots for two minutes
  • Check Your Laundry
  • Five-minute Room Rescue (pick any room in the house). Set your timer and go!
  • Spend 15 Minutes decluttering each day. You can’t organize clutter!

Before-Bed Routine

  • Keep your sink shining
  • Check Your Laundry
  • Lay out your clothes for tomorrow
  • Put out your Hot Spot. It will make you happy in the morning!
  • Go to bed at a decent hour! Set a bedtime and stick with it!
For Day 21, we just keep doing what we have been doing!  Our new habits have been broken down into simple Morning & Evening Routines.  These simple things, when done every day, help our day run much more smoothly, and help keep us from feeling overwhelmed.  Instead of waking up to chaos, we know exactly how to start and end our day!  Most importantly, keep a positive attitude and don't worry if everything isn't done, or if something isn't done perfectly!  FlyLady says "Housework done incorrectly still blesses your family!"  So the laundry isn't ALL washed... but you did some of it... that's better than nothing!  The dishes aren't ALL washed... but you did some of them, stacked the rest neatly, and shined your sink.... that's better than nothing!  You still have clutter... but you spent 5 or 15 minutes dealing with it today... that's better than nothing!  You get the idea!

Today FlyLady introduces us to her "Ask FlyLady" section of her website.  Followers can send FlyLady an e-mail and she answers them.  It's great to hear from others, many who might experience the same troubles that you do!  FlyLady offers some perspective, encouragement, advice, and motivation... these are great to read when you are feeling a little overwhelmed or have lost your positive vibe!  Check it out!

Keep up the good work! Here is a lovely meditation for releasing the past and embracing new healthy habits!
