FlyLady - Pagan Syle - Babysteps Day 11

For those of you who don't know what FlyLady is, it's an inspirational website designed to help you clean and de-clutter your home and your life. It helps you create routines that work for you, your lifestyle & your family to help housekeeping become stress-free and something you just do naturally and daily rather than something you put off until the last minute and then stress about when you have company coming over.

I have felt for awhile now that many aspects of the FlyLady program can be applied in spiritual ways to those who consider themselves, Neo-Pagans, Kitchen Witches, Hearth Witches, Green Witches, etc. I will be going over some FlyLady basics here in my blog and writing about how they can be seen as a spiritual thing; not just a house-cleaning and organizing thing! If you missed it, check out my post called "FlyLady - Pagan Style; Welcome Letter"

When you start with FlyLady, there are 31 days of "Baby Steps" to help you slowly start to integrate small changes into your daily routines. It's about developing habits and changing your mind-set to a positive one!

BabySteps Day 11
Keep Doing what you have been doing! Our Babysteps are now broken down into Morning & Evening Routines!

Morning Routine;
Get dressed To Shoes!
Look at your posted reminders for the day.
Think Positive Thoughts! Check the FlyLady website for reminders, zone mission, motivation, etc.
Put out your Hot Spots for 2 minutes.
5 Minute Room Rescue.
Declutter any room for 15 minutes.

Evening Routine;
Make sure your
sink is shining!

Today we add an inspirational page to our Control Journal.  If you are just getting started with making a Control Journal with Baby Steps, you just have 2 simple pages so far - the Morning Routine and the Evening Routine as posted above.  These should be written in pencil at first so you can go back and adjust the routines as you go along. 
Write on a new page a couple phrases you have read from FlyLady that inspire you.  for example;
"Progress, not Perfection!"
"You can do anything for 15 minutes!"
"You can't organize clutter."
"You're not behind, you're just getting started!"

Add anything you have read, here or from the FlyLady website that reminds you what is all about!  You can even add a couple of your favorite spiritual affirmations.  Make this a page you can turn to when you are feeling overwhelmed... a page that will remind you that you CAN turn things around, it starts with Loving yourself, and with just getting started!

Keep going with the babysteps... use your simple routines to know exactly how to start and finish your day!  You've been doing great!  The past 10 days have been simple but you have probably already noticed a difference in how you care for your home and yourself!  I know I have!
