I came upon the HOMEmakers challenge while cleaning out my saved tabs. Oh – Right up my alley and exactly on point to what I am trying to do. This will make me accountable to maintaining progress and write about it too. YAY!
This weeks challenge is to implement one item from my schedule.
My 1 item is getting up at 6 a.m. each and every single day. There is no sleeping in as that just makes getting up the next day that much more difficult.
This is foundational for my family because it will give me the opportunity to have my devotional/worship/prayer time and prepare mentally for a successful, peaceful day raising my children and keepin the home while still enjoying some crafting time.
The challenges that have cause failure for me is that I get up when the children get up so that starts the day off “late” and a bit stressful. I end up not having a focus for my day and waste the day on the computer and reacting to my children instead of being proactive with them and the housework. This then leads to me staying up way too late trying to gain a sense of accomplishment from the day by cleaning and doing my crafting. This then leads to me sleeping in again and starting the whole process over again.
What I need to move forward and get this change implemented is accountability and persistence. I also need to be in bed no later then 11 p.m. each and every night.
