How To Organize Your Life With Mini Routines
It’s the start of the new school year here this month, which is a perfect time to start setting up some new schedules and routines to help organize your life.
This weeks podcast is answering a reader’s question…
I hope you can help me. I’m not a very naturally organized person and I feel like it rubs off on my kids. I seem to spend most of the day nagging them to do things from the moment they get up to when they go to bed.
There seems to be no order in our everyday life, I’ve tried making a daily schedule but I’m not good at sticking to it. If I’m lucky, I get the kids out of the door on time each morning but thats about it!
Why Do We Need Mini Routines?
- makes life run smoother
- easier for the kids
- saves time
- less likely to lose things
- cuts down on fighting, nagging and bickering
What Are The Steps To Setting Up Mini Routines?
- decide on the scenario
- decide on the steps
- introduce them to your kid(s) and say that this is the most efficient way you can think of, can they think of a better way? Be prepared to accept their ideas.
- If necessary write the steps down, just until you get into the swing of things.
Give it time – It takes 21 days to form a new habit, I say stick with it for a month. Make it into a challenge!
