With May on the horizon, now is a great time to start de-cluttering your schedule. I don’t know about you, but I like it when my summer days are a bit on the lazy side.
On summer weekdays, I like to come home from work, walk the dog, and spend an hour or so lying on the hammock reading. That requires that I simplify things. The less cluttered my house is, the less time it takes to clean. The more efficiently I schedule my errands, the less time I spend. The better my daily routine, the easier it is to keep things on track. Meal planning lets me spend less time cooking.
Rather than scheduling a ton of summer activities, I try to identify two or three goals and focus my efforts on them. For example, I might decide to can some produce and attend some outdoor movies or concerts. Remember, even fun can be clutter and become a burden.
Building good scheduling habits can make your summer much more relaxing.
