Habits = Well Run Home

One of the best ways for we ADD Moms to keep our life running smoothly is to turn positive actions into good habits. So much of our life seems to run on auto pilot anyway; making a conscious effort to develop good habits just makes our life easier.

Bernice from The Stressed Mom understands this (and us too, I think). She wonders in the first sentence if she should have called it “10 Habits to Keep Mom Sane”. Yep, she gets us.

Bernice has written a post called “10 Habits for a Well Run Home“. Reading this article and putting Bernice’s habits into action could literally change your life.

Really.

Bernice gives us some practical and common sense ideas that we know we should do but try to get around doing anyway. Stuff like getting up early and going to bed earlier. You know who you are.

But Bernice also has some ideas that maybe we haven’t really thought of – like doing a whole load of laundry start to finish. Are you like me? I feel like if I get one load in the washer and dryer I’m done. Now you know that’s not true. I’m just putting off folding and putting until another day. Bernice’s plan works better.

While you’re reading the rest of Bernice’s tips (don’t miss # 10), be sure to hang around her site and check it out.

She totally gets us.
