1. A clean kitchen is by far my #1. I know this sounds crazy but in our home, this is where I am a huge portion of my day. Between cooking, meal planning, activities with the kids, eating meals, sorting mail...etc...it's the zone for everything. When my kitchen is a mess, my mind is in complete disarray. You think I'm kidding? I'm not. My kitchen cannot be cluttered or have anything on the counters/table. A place for everything and everything in its place. 95% of the time, I make sure the kitchen is cleaned up before I go to bed. Last night, I did no such thing (I seized the opportunity to binge watch Teen Wolf [I'm not kidding about this either nor am I ashamed...it's good stuff]). I woke up this morning a little cranky and when I came out to the kitchen I felt immediately stressed. I took 15 minutes to clean it all up and instantly felt better. I know it's crazy but when the central part of this home is out of sorts, so am I. The flowers on the table make me smile too...it's the little things (they're fake but will last a lifetime...until I change it up).
While it's not a huge list, it's what helps me. I'd love to hear things that others do to get life under control and organized! I hope you have a most marvelous Tuesday!!!
Until next time...
