FlyLady, Pagan Style - Babysteps Day 30

As you may have noticed, I have been posting the FlyLady 31 Baby Steps and my thoughts on them. I have been adding my thoughts on how cleaning your house, even the simple stuff, can be part of a spiritual devotion, and how the babysteps and the FlyLady program encourage you to think positive about yourself, your home, your habits - all to make life a little easier and better for you!

Today is Day 30 of the BabySteps! So far we have developed a few simple habits of things to do on a daily basis; in the form of simple morning & evening routines. Our goal is to make these routines a habit... if we do them consistently enough then they just become second nature!

Morning Routine

  • Make Your Bed!
  • Get up and get dressed to lace-up shoes; fixing your hair and face
  • Swish and Swipe
  • What's For Dinner?
  • Drink your Water, take your Vitamins
  • 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!

Afternoon Routine

  • Check Kid's Backpacks for Flyers, News, Homework, etc.
  • Homework Time
  • Guide kids to do their daily chores
  • Drink more water!
  • Check Hot Spots again
  • See more ideas for building your Afternoon Routine Here!

Before-Bed Routine

  • Keep your sink shining
  • Check Your Laundry
  • What's For Dinner?
  • Drink More water!
  • 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!
Check our calanders and reminders for any upcoming birthdays and holidays.  If there is anything coming up, write it down on your errand list or to-do list.  FlyLady sets aside on day a week for "Errand Day" .  Read her website flying lesson about routines to see the Daily Focus and more about Errand Day.  You don't have to start doing these yet.  If you need more time with your basic daily routines first, that is fine.  But this gives you an idea of the other stuff in you can get done with your routines!
