Humans are creatures of habit. Whether they be good or bad, we base our lives around the everyday things we do. I’m a creature of “this better be simple, or I’m not doing it” habits. I’ll admit it. I’m a simple girl, that likes to do simple things. So, when I realized that I was lacking in habits, I challenged myself to find 3 simple habits to start now. Right now.
Eating breakfast has been a struggle for me for a very long time, but it was mostly because I was over-complicating it. Every morning doesn’t need to include scrambled eggs, toast, fruit, bacon, coffee, tea, muffins, etc. For me, it needs to be filling and quick to make. My latest favorite is oatmeal or quinoa with nuts, dried cranberries and honey.
Did you know that only 10 minutes of meditation can restore your inner peace? Yes, that sounds very hippie of me, but it’s a scientific fact (thanks, Mayo Clinic). As a wife, mom of 3, and entrepreneur, my life is always GO GO GO. I have been challenging myself to sit for 10 minutes a day and meditate. I use an app to help me focus, but if you can find a quiet space to do this, you won’t need an app. Can I tell you a secret? I sometimes hide in our car to meditate. It’s usually the quietest space in our home, and no one bothers me in there, unlike when I try to hide in the bathroom. Why do kids love to bother their moms when they’re in the bathroom? One of life’s enigmas, I guess.
Clean Your Counters
Have you ever watched Tibetan monks make mandala sand art? Well, you can have your own version of that right at home. OK, that might be stretching it, but cleaning counters is one of those calming and rewarding experiences that many people forget to do, or appreciate. This was a 30 day habit I created for myself, and it has stuck with me. Why is this habit important? Because you should disinfect your counters as germs and bacteria sit on the surface, but also cleaning counters give you a visual sense of accomplishment. It’s a big win. It’s also a catalyst for you wanting to do a little more that day. You may clean the counter, and be inspired to clean your microwave too.
My new counter cleaning crush is Clorox® Scentiva™. Clorox is a staple in our home, and the latest new Clorox® Scentiva™ line comes in disinfecting wipes and a spray. Not only do they clean and disinfect, but they also make the home smell wonderful! Clorox Scentiva line comes in two is awesome because of the wonderful scents associated with it.My to-do list is always growing, but these wipes really help me simplify my list I can do three things: take care of my habit, clean and disinfect the counter and get a sniff of happiness while I do it. I call that a win/win in terms of not only starting simple habits, but also simplifying my cleaning routine with one product. simple habits to start now. With a convenient product like this, I have more more time to spend with my family.
