I feel like with the holidays fast approaching (three weeks till Christmas!) making time for the simple moments can be a challenge. Especially because we want to do it all and be everywhere and say yes to everything, but the problem with that is we tend to ignore the really important things. Making time for those simple moments is what this time of year is all about right? So here are my tips for making time for what matters during the holidays.
Making Time During The Holidays
Quick Cleanups: I LOVE having people over. This time of year it’s fun to have game nights, wine nights (for those who can partake), coffee dates with girlfriends, and family get togethers. But you guys the house gets messy before, during, and after. So that means lots of quick cleanups! Using really helpful products like Bona products can make those cleanups so easy! Our entire downstairs of our house is tile and hardwood. It shows dirt so easily and I feel like I’m always cleaning it up! Plus once it’s clean it gives the illusion that our house is super clean even if things are stuffed in drawers or closets. The Bona wet & dry cloths, along with a Bona mop, really makes cleaning a breeze. No fussing with a bulky mop and bucket. Nope just attach, clean, and throw away the wet cloths. The dry cloths make getting dust out of corners of the hardwoods SO SIMPLE. My floors have never looked better.
Saying No: I have spoken a lot about saying no and why it’s important. But I want to reiterate how important saying NO is. If you want to have more of the simple moments with loved ones you have to say no to things that in the grand scheme of things don’t really matter. For me that’s saying no to happy hours (not really a problem right now), parties, etc. I would rather spend time one-on-one with family and close friends as well as my husband than a bunch of strangers.
Schedule It: When all else fails just schedule in the time. My calendar is known to say things like “brunch with Dad”, “walk with mom”, or “move night with husband.” Just to ensure I have that time blocked out and committed to those important people and those simple moments. I promise just try scheduling blocks of time out for those moments and it will be such a lifesaver. No rearranging or panicking!
