January Cure 2016 – Assignment 19

Do a Surface Sweep

Choose one room in your home where the surfaces could use some attention. Set the timer on your phone (or stove, for you nostalgia lovers) for 3 minutes and GO. Dive in and straighten as if your life depends on it, flat out FAST for the duration of the timer. Scoop stuff up, gather it together and put it where it goes. Start doing a 3 minute “surface sweep” once a day for the next few weeks – I think that once you see the returns on your (very small!) time investment, you’ll be hooked.

Note: Everyone’s household is so different – you may want a slightly longer regular daily “sweep” time, but no matter what, definitely keep it to under 10 minutes. This is a quick daily habit to slip into your life to make it easier, not another dreaded task for the already too long to-do list.

See, told you I’d done this before. I am working from home today, though, and this kitchen table is jacked. Starting the timer now!

Oh, this is what the table looked like:
