15 Minutes of Loving Movement
This reminder is going to stay up. Our habit for May was to love ourselves by moving for 15 minutes each day. Let’s chart our new habit on our calendars and with our Body Clutter Investigators.
Don’t get stuck in perfectionism! Get up and move!
Drink Your Water
Our new habit for June was to drink our water each day. Set aside a pitcher or bottles of water each day. Set your timer to remind you to drink to your health.
Keep up with your water intake so you can see how it affects your Body Clutter.
Go download your free Body Clutter Investigator to help you tally your water.
Swish and Swipe
A little swish of the toilet and a swipe of the counter and the sink will keep your bathroom company ready all the time. It only takes a minute. Practice this habit and find yourself loving your bathroom.
Laundry Habit: A Load a Day!
A load a day keeps CHAOS away!
When we let things pile up, our stess gets worse. Our laundry can be one of the biggest piles of stress on us. When we don’t do our laundry; it is harder for us to get dressed each morning. Tempers start to flair while everyone is in a mad rush to get dressed and off to school.
If we have our laundry habit in place, much of this stress disappears.
Reminder: Your morning routine will change your life
We are going to build a Morning Routine for your Control Journal or to just post on the refrigerator. Here is what FlyLady does:
- Get up and weigh
- Shower and get dressed to lace up shoes, fix your hair and face
- While you are in the bathroom Swish and Swipe
- Grab a load of laundry and start the washer
- Check your calendar for today’s activities
- Empty dishwasher to start your day
- Eat something good for you and take your medicine and vitamins
- Drink your water.
Have some fun today running your errands!
Reminder: What’s for dinner?
Do you know what you are preparing for dinner tonight? Even if you can’t pull something out of the freezer right now, you can begin thinking about it. If you need some help. Check out one of Leanne’s Sample Menu Mailers, or get an idea from FlyLady’s Kitchen!
Reminder: Where is your laundry?
Is it hiding in the washer getting smelly? Cold and wrinkled in the dryer? Are you living out of a laundry basket?
Go Re-boot your laundry. There are five steps: Sort, wash, dry, fold, and put away. Don’t leave out a single BabyStep! If you will stay on top of this, it will not take over your home. You may have too many clothes! Reduce your clothing and have fewer laundry pile ups. Do you have a FlyLady magnet to remind you that your laundry is waiting for you?
Reminder: Where are your shoes?
Did you ever put them on this morning? Have you kicked them off someplace in the house?
Lace up your shoes! If they are tied to your feet; you won’t lose them! Shoes energize your body! Prove me wrong! Wear your shoes for one week watch your routines fall into place! They are your dancing shoes! Dance through your day!
Clean Car Boogie
Do you have room for your children? Check your car seats to make sure they are securely fastened to the seat. Do you have UFOs that could become a hazard if you had an accident? Clean them out. Does stuff fall out when you open the door? Do you smell something bad and can’t find it? Are there two changes of clothes and a couple of sweaters in your car? Do you still have boxes of 27 fling boogie give-a-way items waiting to be dropped off?
Why do we do this to ourselves? Let’s go out there and empty our cars. Drop off the stuff that needs to be given away.
Do your before-bed routine so you can have some fun tomorrow!
This is the most important routine of your whole day. It helps your morning start off on a less-stressed foot.
- Lay out your clothes for tomorrow
- Take a few minutes for yourself
- Check your Calendar for Tomorrow’s Events
- Spend 2 minutes clearing off your Hot Spots
- Shine your sink
- Wash your face, moisturize, brush your teeth and floss
- Go to bed at a decent hour
Tomorrow is Saturday, Family Fun Day!
Have a great evening and always remember that you are loved!
Reminder: Go shine your sink!
Are you going to bed with a kitchen full of dinner dishes? I want you to get up in the morning to a clean kitchen. You can’t do that if you have not cleaned up your kitchen. Now get in there and get this done, before you go to bed. I want you to smile in the morning!
Reminder: Please go to bed; your body needs sleep!
It’s getting late on the east coast of the U.S. I really want you to go to bed. Getting up is much easier when you get plenty of sleep. Getting enough sleep is the key to many of our health issues. Please don’t deprive your body of the rest you need. When I started getting restful sleep; my body clutter started going away. The rest of you better be thinking about getting your body under those sheets shortly.
Consider yourself tucked in!
