So yesterday was day one. Easy peasy. One new habit that isn’t totally new, but I’m not the most consistent. I need to do it. Every. Day. Sometimes twice a day. As I said before, we are often a two load a day dishes family. It’s not something I enjoy, because really, I hate doing the dishes.
This 28 day series I’m doing, using 28 Days to Hope For Your Home, is about recognizing that I have a problem. Okay, I have several problems. I collect clutter, then I don’t want to deal with the clutter, then I don’t know what to do with the clutter. That’s three things but really it boils down to one: I am lazy.
Nony the Slob calls this process “de-slobification”. Some friends (Lynn and Heidi) and I were chatting on Twitter about a month ago, and the term we used was de-crapification. I think I like that term better. (Does this term offend you? I’m sorry, but I call it like I see it. Don’t judge me. I still love Jesus.)
The de-crapification of my life commences now.
Areas that I know I need to work on are all based on my habits:
- routine cleaning/pickup daily
- preventing clutter before it starts
- folding and putting away laundry as it comes out of the dryer
- doing all of the dishes rather than waiting to put the extras in the next load
- get back to running 3-5 times a week
- put myself on an elimination diet to find out what foods I am sensitive to, and then
- put myself on a healthy eating plan that excludes those foods!
- keep a daily food and exercise log
- set a post schedule in advance and stick to it
- set aside days/times for writing and for social media
- minimize other electronic commitments
Through beginning to work on building good habits in these areas, I should be able to begin to take control of my life! There are just too many areas where I tend to either over-do or ignore, depending on the situation.
And do I think I will actually post every single day for the 28 days? I have no idea. Don’t hold it against me if I’m not able to. My goal is to have a life outside of my computer screen… so maybe, maybe not. We’ll see. And with these lofty goals, I am beginning to think maybe I should start a new blog just for them!
Now through February 28th, 28 Days to Hope For Your Home is 50% off! Get this ebook and give yourself some hope for YOUR home!
28 Days to Hope for Your Home is not a guide to getting your home completely organized in a month. Based on the experience I have gained during my personal deslobification process, this e-book is a guide to developing basic habits that other people seem to know (but people like us don’t).
If you follow the instructions for each day, you will learn new habits and change your thinking about your home. Through personal experience (the best teacher), you will understand the basics of keeping your home out of Disaster Status.
You will have hope.
