Let's face it. Life can get complicatead, complex and stressful very easily. Luckily, thre are plenty of ways to simplify your life, especially at home.  Here are some tips from the experts:
*Don't be ruled by the TV guide.  Instead, select what you want to see and then record those shows. That way, you can watch them ANYTIME
*Prepare some meals in advance that can simply be heated up as needed.  That reduces a lot of  "after-work-gotta-get-dinner-ready" stress.  Check out   "Once A Month Cooking"  by Mimi Wilson
*Don't accumulate stuff you don't want or need.  Give those things away, as hard as it is to do!
*Simplify your cleaning by dividing tasks into ten minute chunks, then fit them in whenever you have ten minutes.  When you limit a task to only ten minutes, it is easier to get onto it, too.
*To avoid clutter, adopt the "touch it once" rule, which means simply putting things where they belong before you put them down on the kitchen counter.
*Think of the home related chore that you hate most.  Can you outsource it to a local company or a student looking for work?
*Limite the time you and others in your household spend checking emails and text messages.  Consider having one or two hours each evening that's 'no screen' time.
*Develop healthy routines such as evening walks, games that are not electronic, face time for  friends and HUGS!
These are just a few ideas garnered from the experts.  I bet you are thinking, "nothing new" but the key is not to always learn new strategies, but rather to implement strategies that you have heard over and over again!  You know this, are you DOING it?  Hope  these thoughts will help make your home an enjoyable place to be--for you and your family!
