My Daily Routines Bring Peace and Calm to my Home

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

 

Dear Friends,
Today I received a question, and it is probably one that some of you have been thinking. “How do you stay motivated to do your routines when you are doing the same thing every day?”
What I have found with my daily routines is that peace washes over me as I do my daily routines. There is security in knowing what the next thing in my routine is. There is a calmness in my mind when I don’t have to fret about what to do. There is joy in my spirit because I have let go of CHAOS and have embraced the routines.
Each morning, I am greeted by my shiny sink. It might not last long as the working folks in my house grab breakfast and pack lunch. They might leave a coffee cup for me to rinse and put in the dishwasher. I am thankful for their jobs, and they are trying to not make a lot of noise as they get ready for work. A few cups in the sink from them means that they have left for work and enjoyed a cup of coffee first.
Right after breakfast, I am usually in the laundry room assessing what needs to happen next. Sometimes there is a load of wash that needs to be moved to the dryer, or there might be a load of towels to fold. Most of the time, I just need to start a load of laundry. The routine of doing laundry is not difficult, and yet many people detest laundry. They get hung up (pun intended) somewhere in the process. Most of the time they stop as soon as they take it out of the dryer. Living out of laundry baskets is not peaceful.
Decluttering and blessing my home through vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, and mopping bring me peace. I like checking things off my routine list just like you do. I let perfectionism go and just do the best I can with my home blessings. They are not done perfectly, and that is okay. They are done. I hear from ladies who have not vacuumed or mopped in months. I talk to ladies who dust once or twice a year. These can be done in minutes if you just jump in and do them.
I am not bored or tired of my routines. I embrace them and love them because they bring me peace and calm.
Your Zone Mission today is to wash the bathroom rugs and do a 27 Fling Boogie. Focus on putting things away today.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wipe windows and mirrors.
My menu plan for Wednesday is homemade pizza with a salad.
Have a great day!
