You-Time is important. Learn about mindfulness here.
Get into cleaning (and be more productive) by creating a cleaning playlist with some seriously upbeat songs to keep you energized. Find a suggested workout playlist or you could use pre-made playlists from great apps, like Spotify or Songza, to get some cleaning music without the effort.
Empty your trash at the beginning of the week. That way no matter when trash day is, you are ready to go.
Use Your Crock Pot
Crock pot recipes are generally easy to make with minimal prep time. You can usually throw some ingredients in the pot before work or before running errands and come home to a delicious meal.
Keep Your Fridge Clean
Make sure you clean out anything bad in your fridge each week to prevent scary unknowns and messy clean-ups later.
Make sure you make some time to spend with your family during those busy weeks.
Make a to-do list of those items you can’t forget for the next day to keep your days organized.
Use A Cleaning Timer
Use this Apple app to clean in short-timed bursts, so you don’t burn out too quickly.
