Feeling overwhelmed? Break the tasks into bite sized chunks

I have struggled to find time to blog this week. I am still recovering from my week off, catching up at work and trying to do the jobs at home I couldn’t do because we were decorating.

The house needs a really good clean, I have a pile of ironing and the garden is a huge mess. There is more work out there than we can manage in the next few days so I will attempt the little and often approach. This works well for me when I am feeling overwhelmed. I break things into bite sized chunks and prioritise what needs doing first! At the moment it is the cleaning. We have a student coming in Sunday so the house needs to look spic and span and I also need to plan the week’s meals and do a food shop. 

At the weekend I will do a couple of hours in the front garden as that is the most neglected.

I haven’t been to the gym for weeks or done any yoga so I need to find time to look after myself too.  So I am going to clean the sitting room and hall tonight and then do an hour’s yoga.

In the meantime DD3 has helped out by cooking a huge tuna pasta bake that will do for tonight and tomorrow so I don’t need to do any cooking!
