~Minimize the Chaos~

Life is busy and way too crazy!!
“My kids are getting on my last nerve! My job is absolutely running me rampant! My husband just totally refuses to clean up after himself! My dog is tearing up the house! I am so sick of cooking! Bills are piling up and I’m flooded!”

I’m sure there are few of those things that sound pretty familiar to you 😉 lol. Life is crazy, and we do get overwhelmed, but the great part about it is that it doesn’t have to always affect us negatively.

⛥⛥  The first thing you must ask yourself is, “Why am I reacting this way?” Are you overwhelmed? Trying to blame someone else? Tired? Need some food? Need materialistic solutions for organization? THERE IS A SOLUTION FOR ALL OF THAT CHAOS!

🔷🔸🔷Seeking Serenity🔷🔸🔷

#1- Own & accept the chaos. It’s your life, it’s no one else’s responsibility but yours.

#2- Take a moment to breathe, gather your thoughts, and formulate a plan of action for defeating the chaos.

#3- Declutter. Organize your home & work. (We have products for sale on this site.) Throw away trash, donate items that you can, and find a place for everything.

#4- Remember the important things. Remember that’s YOUR family! You love them with all your heart. Don’t take your stress out on them.

#5- Set boundaries. You know how much you are able to handle. It is absolutely alright to refuse to take on too much! After all, this is YOUR physical and mental health.

#6- Take time for yourself. Pick up a hobby, go out to eat by yourself, write, read, exercise, go to a salon, go to a theater or music event. Do something. WE ALL DESERVE TIME TO OURSELVES!

🏁 These things have exponentially changed my own life! I am living proof it works. Stay true to yourself and you will find the Serenity you’ve been seeking come around! 😊

  1. I can totally relate to this!

  2. Wow! I can definitely relate. These are great tips! #5 and #6 are my favorite. Gotta focus on self!

  3. Exactly what i needed! !

  4. Great tips . I have learned that planning ahead and prioritizing are a huge help. Some times we just have to accept that we can’t do it all perfectly all the time, and that’s okay.

    1. Exactly! That’s something that I struggled to come to terms with for a long time!

  5. My two youngest kids are 16 months apart. When they were younger, my then husband worked all the time. We (I) were so fortunate to have a nanny during the week to help with the kids and cleaning. But those who are doing it themselves, these are really great tips. Accepting the chaos is the first step in doing something about it.

    1. I am a single mother to a two year whose father doesn’t come around and probably will never care to do so. While exhausting to me lol, I would have it no other way right now! This little girl has forced me to use these steps now! 😂 and it has made life that much more enjoyable!

  6. I know what you mean but it is so important to manage and set your priorities.

  7. I used to have a difficult time dealing with maintaining the house and taking care of four kids! Crazy! I think it helps to have a schedule. Keeping yourself calm so you can think clearly is important too. These are great tips especially the first one.

  8. Wow…its so relatable.. But then I guess so is being a mom. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Wonderful tips too.

  9. Great tips! Life certainly feels stressful and chaotic at time so I must remember these calming strategies 🙂

  10. Wow I totally found myself in this. Moms-related things.

    1. 😂😂😂 The struggle!

  11. Declutter is perhaps the most important activity in our lives. Just de-cluttering and finding space in our lives can be the difference between chaos and calmness. Sometimes, we are conquistadors of chaos, because we feel comfortable in that environment. It helps to take a step back and acknowledge that fact and find ways to fix it.

  12. Decluttering is a great way to destress I find, clear space, clear mind! Some really great tips, I can totally relate!

    1. Thank you! 😉

  13. I have bookmarked this. I am a mother of small boys and they have just leave things everywhere. Urrrgh, I have tried to set boundaries but i just end up overstepping them because i cant live in clutter.

    1. Ulgh that’s my weakness too. With my two year old, I know I have to teach her to clean up after herself, which I do, but sometimes I just have to get to the point and do it myself! Lol

  14. “It’s your life, it’s no one else’s responsibility but yours.” I couldn’t agree more. My desk now is really messy and it irritates me if I can’t find a pen. I guess I’m about to do declutter. 🙂 Thanks for the tip

  15. Girl do you know how hard it was for me to just overlook the pile of dirty dishes? But lately I got so much work to do that I HAVE to let it go. It annoys me sometimes but you just have to learn.

    1. Lol girl I am right there with you! It’s been a shock to me, but it’s what we have to do 😉

  16. Oh yeah…taking a moment (or 2) to breathe deeply and remember the important stuff really helps take the edge away from the chaos frustration 🙂 Great tips!

    1. Thank you 😉 I definitely need to close my eyes and just take a deep breath sometimes! Lol

  17. Now this I can relate to (especially the part about “do I need food?” lol). These are really great steps to get you out of that mindset.

  18. Totally agree! I think taking a moment is always the most important part before addressing the chaos!!

  19. Even though I do not have kids I can so relate to this with my boyfriend. lol This was a great stress reliever to read.

  20. I so agree with you! All life is full of chaos! The important thing is how we tackle it without losing our sanity!

  21. Planning and executing well is always my look out. Thanks for the informative article.

  22. LOL I love how totally relatable this is!!!

  23. Remembering the important things is so important. It keeps you from making unnecessary mistakes during chaotic moments.

  24. I WISH that someone would have given my mom these tips when I lived at home. I will definitely be sharing them with her now so she can spend more time with my sister enjoying life, rather than stressing!

  25. There are times that we really want to give up from being a mother because of too much responsibilities we handle. But that is impossible. We are mothers, and we know that we also deserve this solutions to the things we are going through. Glad that I have read this. Thanks a lot.

    1. You are so welcome! 😊
