Ten minutes may not seem like much, but it's impressive how much you can get done in just 600 seconds. In fact, when you think about it that way, it seems like longer! 600 opposed to 10...
Starting a habit of getting up merely ten minutes early can make you feel so much more productive in the mornings, and can help your day get off to a good start! Getting something done first thing in the morning, even something small, makes a big difference.
You'll have to figure out what works best for you... for me- taking ten minutes before heading to work is ideal, for a busy mom, perhaps getting some household stuff done right away in the morning is the way to go. Here's a quick list of things you can do in ten minutes or less- and check 'em off the To Do list right away!
- Start a load of laundry
- Pick up toys or clothes laying around
- Wash a sinkload of dishes
- Clean a toilet
- Wipe down a counter
- Scrub off burnt on food off of the stove
- Sweep an area (like an entryway, bathroom, or kitchen)
- Fold a laundry basket of laundry and put it away
- Clean mirrors
Think of a couple ways you can make a difference in your home in just a couple minutes, and knock it out first thing- it'll feel good to cross it off your list!
