We do not realize how much time we waste until it slips away. As a young parent it is often difficult to juggle your child’s needs, work outside of home, and time for yourself. It does not get easier as children get older and involved with outside activities in youth sports, special interests, and spending time with their friends.
Time always moves by faster than we realize. Ten years slips by, then twenty, and it is too late to wish you had not spent time away from family. Women are generally the ones left to do the household chores, regardless of whether they have an outside occupation or not. What can you do to spend less time maintaining the home yourself? Hire a maid service.
We Clean 4 You comes into your home monthly or bi-weekly to relieve your stress, provide a healthy home, and give you time with your family. Doing a few household chores during the week will lessen the burden to get it all done on Saturday or Sunday. Then you can play or enjoy the time with your family and friends, too!
Make lists of everything you feel is necessary to get done in your home for the week. Ask yourself, “What if this isn’t done?” Prioritize the list as items to do now, delegate, or not important to get done. If you go back and clean or redo a chore that someone else has taken on as a responsibility because it is not meet your standards you are wasting time and defeating the purpose of everyone pitching in as a team. Less than perfect is still better than doing it all yourself.
When was the last time you unplugged from everything? No phone, no laptop, no TV, and especially no work? We live in a fast technology, social media, plugged in to all news all the time world. It is important to your family and your mental health to take a break at minimum once a year.
Your stress level will dramatically decrease when you take time off. Taking a day off every week to spend time with family helps you re-evaluate your priorities and rest your mind. Taking a week off for a vacation doing something not related to work will improve your concentration level substantially. When your concentration and mind improve your effectiveness at work improves, perspective changes, and creative innovations occur.
What about Family? Your family will appreciate your time totally away from any signs of work. Do not take a laptop. Check emails, messages once a day, and monitor for critical issues. Most issues and messages can be answered when you return from vacation. No one expects you to follow up while you are on vacation!
Overall health is greatly improved when your stress level is reduced. You are reducing the likelihood of burn-out, depression, a heart attack or even death when you practice self-care and take time off.
Vacations and Maid Service= Healthy Quality of Life!
