The Power of Home Resets

Happy New Year!

It's a great time to start some good habits, and today I'll share with you the #1 way I keep a tidy home, despite the busy schedule and family life.

It's called my daily home reset and it's a habit that's worth every effort to consistently do each day.

Every morning after my husband and kids leave for work and school, I spend about 20 minutes or so putting pillows back on the sofa, giving my counters a quick wipe down, loading some dishes in the dishwasher, making the bed, and walking through my home to make sure items are where they are supposed to be. In other words, I RESET my home. 

We do the same at night, before everyone goes to bed, we reset the home as a family by having everyone place items back where they belong and work together as we tidy our spaces.

When this task is completed consistently each day over a long period of time, it not only keeps your home in order, but does NOT take long, because you are consistently keeping up with your home every. single. day.

It's when we stop this daily habit, that our home's get out of control and become more time-consuming to keep clean and organized.

Steps to Start your daily reset

If you're just starting this new habit, this is what I'd recommend:

1) Pick one area or room that you will focus on for 7 days (1 week).

2) Pick a morning time and an evening time when you will tidy that one space and consistently keep up with that area (don't stress about the other areas of your home right now). You are getting the habit working for you first.

3) Make adjustments as needed and once you can consistently keep up with that one space for at least 1-2 weeks, add another space to your daily reset. 

4) Continue this process until you can tidy your whole home and it becomes a part of your lifestyle.

Home Resets are truly the secret to maintaining a tidy, organized home consistently. 

Start slow. Be consistent. Trust the process.

You can do it!
