The One Minute Rule

It's Monday again! Hopefully your Monday has started out better than mine. I had a child over sleep and move at a glacial pace this morning, our older cat urinated of a pile of clothes fresh out of the dryer and we got soaked on the walk to school this morning. Oh and Flynn is teething. So yeah, not the best start to a Monday and now that Flynn is napping, I'm kinda tempted to go back to bed until he wakes up, just so I can try and start this day again.

However, before going for a nap myself, I wanted to pump out this quick blog post because for the next week, I'm going to be trying "The One Minute Rule". The one minute rule is where you complete tasks that only take a minute as soon they need doing. For example, making your bed in the morning, washing up your bowl after breakfast, taking the full rubbish bag down to the bin etc. I read about it last night and because I'm wanting to get into a better habit of completing mundane household tasks and staying on top of the housework, I've decided to give it a try.

I've already technically failed this morning as there were a lot of one minute jobs I could've done, like making my bed, but since Vala decided to move so slowly this morning, I ended up having to rush the school run and a lot of one minute tasks are still waiting to be done. That being said, before I go for this small nap, I do plan on washing the kids breakfast bowls and putting the urine soaked "clean clothes" back into the washing machine. This blog post has taken me more than a minute to write but since it's not a very long post and there isn't much depth and detail to it, I figured I might as well get it written and posted now rather than after my nap. No use putting it off til later. Doing that is usually what causes me to miss a blog post day.

I'll admit, I might struggle to adapt to the one minute rule at first but I am kinda excited to see how I go.

Until next time,

  1. Good luck with that - keeping my house under control is something I struggle with too. Maybe google Pomodoro Technique once you're feeling a bit more ambitious.. this is something I use with my writing as well!
