Made breakfast for the kiddo.

Tuesday’s Tip: Routines make your life easier

Okay, I know some of you read that title and are thinking, well duh! Then there’s probably a few who do just fine with a different schedule every day.

For those of you who are like me, you’re thinking YES, but how do I get started? The one thing that has helped me get on track is following Flylady’s plan for setting up workable routines. I’ve found that even if I just do a simple morning and before bed routine a la Flylady I can get more accomplished than I do working all day at it without the routines.

I must admit that I have fallen out of the habits of late, but I am slowly working my way back. The difference in just a weeks time is amazing.

If you’re like me and need a little push to add simple routines to your life, then you really should take a few minutes to visit http://www.flylady.net/ All the information you need to get started is right there on the website, so there’s no excuse to wait.
