THE FIGURES SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES; NEARLY 90,000 CHILDREN ARE AFFECTED BY THEIR PARENTS' SEPARATION EACH YEAR, AND THE NUMBER IS INCREASING
Without going into valuing the reasons that lead to this situation, what is a fact is that the change is profound for all family members.
Children in particular will need more stability in their environment than ever before.
The organization of the home is the first step to achieving the necessary tranquility and security, in order to live this new situation normally.
HOME ORGANIZATION BEING SEPARATE PARENTS
1. TIME MANAGEMENT
You must manage to own your time. To do this, carefully follow these steps:
1. SETTING OBJECTIVES AND TASKS
Target example 1: in the mornings I want to go out with the beds made
Example task 1: kitchen collected and cleaned
2. TIME ALLOCATION
Each task and goal must be given a set time
Write all goals and tasks with their corresponding time in an agenda. Whether electronic or paper, planning is critical. When you write you will realize if your goals are realistic, detect problems and have the opportunity to put them solution.
4. DELEGATION OF TASKS
If possible delegate. These are no times to prove the super dad or the super mom you are. If your mother tells you she'd be happy to lend a hand making you some tupers with food, accept it. Your children will be happy to eat their grandmother's croquettes.
5. NOT TIME THIEVES
Set a certain time for reviewing mail, calls, and whatsapp, and the rest of the time focus on the task you're doing. You'll see you'll be much more productive.
Home organization will play a very important role right now. If you get even the smallest object to have its proper place, the enjoyment of family time will be of great quality.
May your mantra be that of no to accumulation, nor of things, nor of tasks.
You don't have to tell yourself that kids have to brush their teeth every day after breakfast because you already know that, but I'll give you some clues you might not have taken into account:
1. PREPARATION OF CLOTHES THE DAY BEFORE
And not only your children's, but yours too. Absolutely everything decided and prepared the night before so that the legañas of the morning do not play you a bad pass. However, remember to check in a reliable application for the time it will take.
In this sense it will help you a lot that the entrance of the house is well planned. It is one of the most forgotten rooms and yet plays a very important role in maintaining order in the rest of the house.
No matter the style, the key is balanced decoration with practical storage solutions.
2. EVENING BATHS AND SHOWERS
Bath and shower time affect sleep and affect the health and care of our skin and hair. There are detractors in both ways that justify taking a bath at night that relaxes them and for whom a warm shower wakes them up in the mornings.
But now we're dealing with a moment of survival and time racing, so the toilet the night before is more than justified and will give us a few more minutes to breakfast and cover last-minute contingencies like tantrums and cereals all over the dress.
3. BREAKFAST-READY TABLE
Prepare as much as you can for breakfast the next day. Tablecloth, glasses, dishes, cereals, etc ... Place the table as if you were going to have breakfast that same night and you will see what 10 beautiful minutes you win.
4. YOU FIRST
Get up 20 minutes before everyone else to get organized, get dressed and put the milk and toast to heat up. The morning will matter to you more and everything will be more relaxed.
5. LEAVE THE BED MADE
You need 5 minutes, that's all, to leave a decently made bed. The trick is to have adequately measured bedding (if you buy an adjustable lower of exact dimensions to the mattress, it will take literally 15 seconds to place it).
Another small tip is to leave the duvet or Nordic cover folded from half down. It's faster and the feeling will be a hotel bed. If you wear a countertop, leave it hanging. You'll be surprised that it doesn't look bad and especially when it's freshly picked up from the clothesline.
And if I haven't convinced you yet, don't miss the following video:
6. GIVE THE "RUMBA"...
Or the "bachata"... But the last gesture before closing the door of the house that is to activate this little toy. You can't even imagine the joy of seeing your house sucked in when you get back!
7. PLANNING WEEKLY MENUS AND SHOPPING LISTS
Plan menus weekly and shop online with default lists and you'll solve dinner and meal problems.
Sunday is usually the perfect day. You could even cook and save for the rest of the week in hypers.
8. ONE LAST LOOK
Before you go to bed, take a quick look. If something isn't in place, don't leave it for the next day or your tasks won't accumulate. Put it in place right away, and in this simple way, you'll stop the mess.
