Two Minutes Makes My Home Shine

coffeetableDear Friends,

Last week I implemented my Two Minutes to Peace in my home. Many of you have been using this fun way to get things done. I sit here looking around my home and I don’t see anything that makes me feel bad. Here is my list of things I have done for two minutes.

  4. Mop the floors
  5. Detail dust end tables

I have been setting my timer for two minutes and even though I know its power, I am blown away by how wonderful our home looks.

I have done my weekly home blessing two minutes at a time.
I have menu planned two minutes at a time.
I have touched each zone in my home for two minutes at a time.
I have taken care of me two minutes at a time.
I have decluttered two minutes at a time.
I have worked in my yard two minutes at a time.
I have cleaned my car out two minutes at a time.
I have put things back in their place two minutes at a time.

So what excuse have you been making? Please try this method. The true power in the two minute challenge is getting up and moving. You will be so surprised at how many steps you can get in each day if you get up and do just two minutes.

Each day we have a focus. Just spend 2 minutes on this and your week will be productive. On Friday! It is the day we clean out car, diaper bag, purse, and plan a date with your Sweet Darling. Set your timer and try it two minutes at a time. What can you get done today while I talk with you on our Facebook Live Video Podcast.

If you can’t figure out what to do next; use my list! You will be just as amazed as I am. Set your timer and get started. Be sure and rest too! My list has been spread out over a whole week. It works out to less than 15 minutes a day. My hotspots are cleared and our home is shining! You can have this too.
