“If light is in your heart, you will find your way home.” ~ Rumi
My home is my sanctuary.
I feel that anyone who steps through my door should have an experience of peace, and find a place to recharge, rejuvenate, reconnect, and build up resources to tackle the outside world.
Honestly, I didn't always think this way, though. My childhood was nomadic and dysfunctional, so it took time to learn what the word "home" meant.
As a young adult, I raised a passel of kids and learned to run a pretty tight ship based on efficiency first. Although we had a fairly comfortable existence, I wouldn't say that our house was particularly cozy back then.
I’d like to share with you a few things I’ve picked up along the way to maybe help make things move with more consciousness, ease, and flow for you in your home, too:
I sometimes feel like a kid when I get into my BuJo and put a little star next to a completed task! My BuJo is the first thing I go to in the morning to sketch out what my day might look like and the last thing I look at before I go to bed.
Educate and empower each person to create a fair division of labor. If you’ve lived in the same location for five years and your partner doesn’t know where the laundry soap is kept or what day the trash and recycles go out to the curb, something has got to change! Living together is a team approach.
My next blog post is a continuation of "Ease and Flow at Home." Part 2 will focus on the kitchen and mealtime.
Please comment with your own helpful hints on creating the efficient and peaceful environment you've created with your children, at home, work, or when traveling!
