If you've ever felt like there has to be a better way to manage your home, you're not alone. I was right there not too long ago. I developed a system to manage your home as the HOME CEO, not just as a homemaker.
As the HOME CEO, you care for your home and family. You should be able to do that while still caring for yourself. With this system, you can feel confident in your work at home. You'll be ready to shout from the rooftops "I manage my home with ease!"
Here's how it works...
The 3 Pillars of Home Making.
There are three pillars of homemaking: Cleaning, Organizing, and Decluttering.
Cleaning includes all the tasks related to keeping your home clean on a daily basis. This would include things like washing dishes, taking out the trash, sweeping floors, etc.
Organizing is setting up systems in your home so that everything has a place and you can find what you need when you need it. This would include creating a meal plan, starting a laundry system, setting up a budget, etc.
Decluttering is getting rid of the things in your home that you no longer need or use. This would include getting rid of clothes that don't fit, toys the kids have outgrown, expired food from the pantry, etc.
By focusing on these three pillars of home management, you will be well on your way to having a well-managed home. But there's one more thing you need...a routine.
Your Routine as the HOME CEO
In order to be an effective HOME CEO, you need to have a routine. Just like any CEO of a company has a daily routine, so does the HOME CEO. Your routine will be unique to you and your family but there are some basics that every routine should include: journaling/prayer/devotions, self-care, exercise/movement, and family time.
Start your day by connecting with whatever higher power you believe in or doing something to connect the body spiritually. This could be through reading your Bible, praying, journaling, or meditating.

is could be taking a bubble bath, reading your favorite book, going for a walk outside, or taking a nap. Check out my 50 Ways to Fill Your Cup in 10 Minutes or Less or grab Self Care Bingo here.
