Quick Tip Tuesday: Cleaning and Cardio

Today’s Quick Tip Tuesday comes from Dani Stone of DaniStone.net. It’s all about staying fit while multi-tasking and you can easily include the kids or get it done on a hot summer day. Her solution: cleaning and cardio!

Quick Tip Tuesday: Combine Cleanign and Cardio

How to combine cleaning and cardio to get things done around the house and get your sweat on and burn some calories without feeling like either is taking up your whole day? Set a timer for 10-15 minutes, blast some good, fast, get-your-heart-rate-up tunes on the radio, and tackle some chores. Deep clean the kitchen as much as you can, or the bathroom. Change the sheets on all the beds and pick the toys up off the floor. Scrubs the baseboards that you haven’t touched in a few months, or dust all of the ceiling fans. Do it fast and don’t stop until the timer goes off. Do that a couple of times (or more) one day a week or so, and your house will be much cleaner while you’ve been “working out!”

Quick Tip Tuesday: Work Intervals With a Timer

Today’s Quick Tip Tuesday is great for the summertime, when you don’t really want to work (you’d probably rather be at the pool or enjoying the sunshine or reading a good book, right?) but really need to because business doesn’t stop when the weather is nice and the kids get out of school. Short bursts of productivity can help you get those things done that you have to do and still have time to enjoy the day. Thank you to Laura of Mommy Miracles for sharing this awesome tip! Quick Tip Tuesday: work intervals with a timer to get things done! Work intervals to get things done! #wahm   Laura’s tip is to set a timer (however long you choose, depending on what you need to do and your circumstances…fifteen minutes,  thirty minutes, an hour?) and work as hard and as quickly as you can in that time. When it goes off, take a little break, do something fun or relaxing or with your kids. After a while, set it again and get back to work. This is really helpful for the kids, too, to see exactly how long you’ll be working each time. You can tell them that they need to play or watch a show or do something by themselves, and when the timer goes off, then they can talk to you or play with you. Until then, they’re on their own! (I know a visual like that helps my kids a lot). Couple the timer with your specific to-do list, and you’ll get so much done in a day without feeling like you missed out on everything else!

Quick Tip Tuesday: Get A Handle on Laundry

Dan Morris shared this simple yet effective tip. Why didn’t I think of that?!

Quick Tip Tuesday: Get a Handle on Laundry

quick tip Tuesday: get a handle on the laundry

 

We all know that when laundry piles up, it stresses us out and ends up a literal mountain to be done. Doing a load of laundry every day is the perfect way to keep it under control, because one load is easily manageable, makes a big difference, and you can catch up the next day if you miss one. But, Dan’s tip is this: every single morning, before you do any other work or chore, put a load of laundry in the washing machine. You automatically get a load done AND the rest of the day is multi-tasking. Even if your day goes downhill, you KNOW you’ve gotten something done.

So easy, right? But make it a habit, and not only will you always get something done every single day, but you’ll avoid the laundry mountain of doom.

Quick Tip Tuesday: Grocery Store Delegating

For Quick Tip Tuesday this week, Dani Stone (of Danistone.net) is sharing how she gets grocery shopping done faster….with grocery store delegating!

Delegate grocery store tasks to get the shopping done faster!

 

If you’re in the store with kids that are old enough to leave your sight for a few minutes at a time, give each of them a short list of specific grocery items to go grab. They won’t get bored, and you’re trip will be done much faster. You can even let them write out their own lists ahead of time, going off of your master list, to include them in the process even more.

Quick Tip Tuesday: Planning Ahead Your To-Do List

Today’s Quick Tip Tuesday is brought to us by Erin, a successful work at home mom with a jewelry business*. Her tip? Planning ahead your to-do list.

Quick Tip Tuesday: Planning ahead your to-do list

Erin’s advice is this: take 5-10 minutes before bed every night to plan your to-do list for the following day. Doing so will set your mind at ease because you’ll know what you need to do tomorrow, and it will, literally, be planned out.

The other fantastic thing about doing this is that because it’s already made, as soon as you wake up, you can hit the ground running. AND, she says, with small children, it’s hard to know when you’ll be able to be productive and actually get work done. Sometimes, your kids need extra cuddles or stay home from school sick, or generally mess up your schedule.

Planning ahead your to-do list gives you a very real idea of what you can do when you get 10-15 minute pockets of time between kid interruptions. While the toddler is eating lunch, you know exactly which phone call you should make. Is the baby napping? Finish your invoices or put in your orders. All of those little things add up to a productive day, and you don’t waste those precious few minutes wondering what you could be doing.
