How to Make Routines Work for You

How to Make Routines Work for You

I love me some Facebook Live…

As often as I can, I jump onto my Facebook page on Wednesday mornings and talk about Clutter, Overwhelm and how to get out from under both. But last week, I had a special guest at my house, my coauthor Cheri Gregory! She put me on the hot seat and asked me all sorts of questions that readers submitted about one of the most dreaded words I speak about: Routines.

On the video, Cheri and I answer questions like:

Were you this organized when you had littles at home? What practical tips do you have for moms in the “littles” stage?

How do you manage and remember your routines?

When the unexpected happens, emergencies arise, how do you stop the panic attacks that arise when you get put out of your routine???

How did we get over that all or nothing notion? I’m a perfectionist when it comes to routine, therefore I refuse to do one because I’m so afraid there will be a flux that changes everything and spins the rest of my plan out ofa control!! #perfectionistissues

It’s a great conversation. And, if you watch, you may see me lose my mind when a squirrel invades my garden and steals one of my prized tomatoes… (I, apparently, was not at my best…)
