Well it was a LONG and busy week but oddly I feel more rested and relaxed. I think a lot of it was because I didn’t put all the crazy extra stress I normally put on myself every day during the break so it felt like I was LIVING and LOVING life. So I guess since it was Spring Break – I gave myself a BREAK. 😉 I need to do that more often and am trying to refocus my life and my priorities. This week is dedicated to getting my routines back on track- aka FlyLady style like I have mentioned before. I have been reminded lately from reading the book The Compound Effect (I downloaded to my iBooks app and read every chance I get)- it is the small and simple things we do every day that make a HUGE difference in our lives.
So today I got back to those small things that make a big difference and that I have been putting off (and even dreading doing) – picking up little things around the house and putting them in their rightful place, cleaned out the fridge and my pantry so I can plan a menu and grocery list for the next 2 weeks, got all the trash from the house out for trash day, put away laundry that had been piling up, finally got to work on and finish my Spring Break post :), cooked a healthy dinner that my family loved, had the whole family help clean the kitchen after dinner to make lighter work, had Family Night and a treat, and I shined my sink, laid out my workout stuff for tomorrow and did my bedtime routine before heading to bed. My To-Do list is still a mile long…….but I know that doing small and simple things each day really make a BIG difference!
