Getting Dressed To Shoes Hair and Makeup
Tuesday, April 10, 2012
MARILYN'S WAY Plan and Play Day. Thank you everyone for taking the the challenge to "Make Your Bed!" It is April's Habit and I am proud to say I have done so since I challenged myself of the habit in April 2011. Many may think, "How is this going to get my house clean and decluttered?" Just like Clutter breeds Clutter, the monthly habits breed habits. We are making a 12 Layer Cake here. What do you want it to be made up of? My cakes were always flops because I wanted to skip the first three layers and that is Shine My Sink, Declutter 15 Minutes, and Get Dressed To Shoes Hair and Makeup. These three layers or steps are probably the hardest habits to continue with. When you do, it is so worth it. This month's habit should be a breeze. Get out a sticky post it note and write on it in bold print, "Make Bed." That's what I had to do until it became a habit. Making the bed is really a big deal in how well you may sleep. What if the maids in the hotels changed out the towels and didn't completely make the bed. How would you feel? I know I wouldn't like it. Yet this is what we walk into each night when retiring for the evening. Yup an unmade messy bed. Let's make our bed 3 days in a row and see how we feel. I know it will make a difference. Give it a try.
Today is also Plan and Play Day. I have got some planning to do to make the rest of my month go the way I want it to so you may not see me much today on Facebook. I didn't get much planning done last Tuesday and this is a weekly habit that I want to keep. Part of my planning will be related to gardening, projects I have and in what priority they will be, phone calls that need to be made. How am I going to do this? Why 15 Minutes At A Time!
