...today's topic. You know, I believe that all of us MOMS should be extra cautious and savvy to benefit from every single teeny tiny moment and occasions in our life and turn each and every challenge into developmental progress. It is the perfect time to be so smart. Why not turn this sprinkling time into a long lasting benefit, and enduring benefit that will last for our children as well? And now, I hope I could grab your attention properly, I will propound some tips that are mixed in productivity, minimalism and environmentalism concepts. My...

...first and foremost tip, literally in everything, is planning. So tip number one act like a project manager and plan ahead. What I mean is to write down every single test there you're going to tackle during this spring cleaning time. I suggest you start with defining cleaning zones in your house and, under each category, writing the related tasks. Immediately after putting down all of them, you'll experience the sense of relief and it helps you tremendously to manage your limited time, which is your valuable as set. Think of this spring cleaning as a project. With its precise definition, a project is a temporary endeavor to deliver a unique product, service or result. Project is time sensitive and resource based, so you have all the individuals at home as your resources. All you need to do is planning correctly to deliver a clean house at the...

...end of the project with the least amount of effort in time for each one of the members in the family. Okay, when we are done with this, obvious steps time to communicate with all of our family members and begin to delegate each task to the proper person. And, of course, each one should pick the tasks that are feasible and safe for them to do. And no one knows better than any mommy about which task should be assigned to each one. But let your children and husband have a voice, let them pick the ones that are the favorite and allow them to show up as they wish. Don't impose your opinion on them. Just try, I to cooperate and develop this spirit of corporation in your family and simply plan the tasks together as a family, based on the time that you consider for this specific project. And don't forget to take anyone's opinion into consideration. By the way, do...

...you know how valuable can these opportunities be for us to teach our children some life skills. Our children need to learn all the house errands for their future. Then we're not teach them from now. It's a win win relationship for us and our little kiddos. So keep up the good work, Mama. And now let's recap the benefits of the skint one another time. First of all, by doing so, you can rest asshort that every single task is remembered. You can free some space in your mind when you know all the tasks are written down, so you do not need to constantly keep them in mind. Second of all, all the family are involved and so they can appreciate you more for doing the household choice after this, and no need to say that, but involving everyone from the beginning and trying to communicate with them, you can foster a lifeline, co operation coulture at home that can facilitate your mom like a lot and your children's future life as well. And,...

...the most important of all, you don't need to handle all this spring cleaning thing alone. And now you're all set. Everyone knows what to do, when to do and all you need to do now is just action. So we go over the next tip that I have for you, which aims to add some spices that this process of somehow tiring house cleaning tasks, and it's simply having fun during this whole process of cleaning time. You know, sprinkleaning does not have to be at Chore. When you make sprinkleaning fun, it tends to make the time pass more quickly and turns your cleaning activities into something you no longer dread having to do. Some of the ways to make sprinklaning...

...fun are to blast your favorite tunes, I mean to play music, or create a friendly competition between you and the other members of your family. For example, we can set a timer and then compete with each other and doing the tasks as fast as possible, or it can set a goal and figure out the fun reward for each completed task, like promising to have a dinner out when all the tasks are done. Why not? Your limit is the sky if you want to add some spices to the tedious sprinkleaning thing, and no one knows better than than you which specific condiment can make this experience tastier. So go ahead and be creative. And now for the third tip. Applying minimalism and environmentalism to prolong the effect of our spring cleaning as far as...

...reaching to the future of our children. With spring cleaning around the corner, many of us are thinking of the big spring cleaning. So while we're taking everything out of the cupboards, dust and clean, why not take the opportunity to get rid of the unnecessary clutter? Surely you've heard of minimalism, a current trend that encourages living solely with essentials to make the most of the prison moment. It's becoming more and more popular, whether for environmental or financial reasons or simply to improve the quality of life. But what is minimalism? The basic principle of Nimalism is to live in simplicity. Rest a short, that doesn't mean giving everything away and living between four white walls. The idea behind minimalism is to get rid of the clutter. Either are objects that bring us no pleasure, things that we have applicates of them, as well as toys...

...that are children could very well do without. Detaching from our material possessions allows us to spend less time tiding up, cleaning, maintaining shopping and thus spend more quality time with our loved ones. Several studies have shown that decluttering the house decreases courtisil levels and therefore stress levels. I prefer to go over the topic of minimalism in another episode, and in fact I need it to be well mentioned than being faster review, as it is one of the backbones of our mother who told it, in my opinion. But for now just have a tip with this core value in mind. decluttering is one of the basics of minimalism and one of the first steps too, as I said before. My specific tip is to consider decluttering your house in this opportunity of sprink cleaning.

It shouldn't be like just cleaning one thing and putting it back on, but to think about how useful it is for you, how much pleasure doesn't bring for you, and if you have any doubt about the answer to any of the questions, it shows that it is time to make the right decision about that. Personally, I'm an advocate for animal or even continuous clutter of all of my belongings, from home appliances to personal items. This gives me a lot of energy and reduces my mental loads. Making a decision about the tools and belongings that have been unused for a long time can boost your energy level, trust me. But we might have done the decluttering without knowing the minimalism concepts before. What I want to emphasize more is to do it more environmentally consciously this year. I mean prioritizing environmental considerations in this whole process. So tip number three is decluttering your home with reuse, recycle and repurpose in...

...mind. One removing excess clutter from your home is one of the key aspects of spring cleaning. It is important you do it with reuse, recycle or repurpose in mind. Instead of just tossing guiems you no longer use, figure out a better use for them. Old T shirts can be turned into racks to use then dusting. Use old clothes and fabrics rather than paper for cleaning supplies. Clothes that are two older stained to be donated. Sheets, towels or fabrics can all be recycled or reused for cleaning supplies. There's no need to use paper, towels or other paper products when you likely have a slew of cleaning supplies. Clamoring to be used or worn out sucks make for great cleaning gloves. Clothes you haven't worn in the past six to twelve months can be donated, sold online or giving away to those who can put such items...

...to get use. You can even have a yard sale to give your old items a chance at a new home, and cracked cops or bowls can be repurposed into garden planters. See, the options are limitless. And now let's summarize what we've been through. In this episode. We talked about three specific tips that can facilitate and advanced our spring cleaning experience this year. The first tip was to act as a project manager and plan and manage this sprin cleaning thing as a project. We also covered some of the benefits of all family members involvement in this whole process. Then we went through the fond part of it and throw some ideas around adding enjoyment to this experience for all of us in the family. And last but not list we brought up a hint to apply minimalism and also consider the environment in our spring cleaning this year. The...

...hacks and tricks in all these three major tips or limitless, and I can talk about each one of them for an entire episode, but for now I just wanted to name some general tips and let you be creative in customizing each tip to fig your particular situation. With you a clean, peaceful house full of joy and happiness. Bye for now. So stay tuned, because I'm...
