How To Have A Stress Free Home When Working

Whether you work from home or in an office (I do both) you want to come back to your safe haven, not stress over things that need to be done in the home, to paying bills, cleaning, cooking etc. It should be a place of tranquility, but don't get me wrong life can throw you some curve balls and things can get disastrous and anxiety can get the better of you, but with a few key ingredients and positive mantra put into action not just repeatedly said in your mind, or whispered under berated breath, a few key things is all you need, to put in place to have a stress free home when working.

Stack up on stationary
I am a stationary junkie, I am always buying new notebooks, pens, post-it notes and my new fave purchases have been coloured document wallets. They are great for storing and sorting all your important documents, be it for taxes and bills and keeping everything safely together.

Know due dates of bills
Before I paid no attention to bills and their due dates and that can at times lead to trouble. So it is vital, to know what is coming in and especially going out of your account and knowing when things need to be paid. The perfect way to keep up to date is storing everything on your calendar on your phone, that way you can keep check whilst on the go.

Dad will fix it
I am fortunate enough to have my dad live down the road, so anytime anything needs to be done, I am grateful dad comes running with tools in hand, be it reluctantly on a Sunday morning. If your dad is not local, utilise YouTube, you can literally find anything on there to help you! How to paint correctly, how to garden, to even how to put up a shelf, (if you can't be bothered to read the instructions, and are a bit of a more visual person.

Food prep
Planning on what you are eating throughout the week is great and does not have to be stressful, with a little forward planning That way you can save yourself a bit of money and there will be less food waste. A great example of a bit of prep is to make a batch of Breakfast Pops, perfect for those hot mornings or to keep fuelled up throughout the day is with some seedy-oat bars or make a big batch of lasagna

Get the washing done
With a busy home, a number of clothes are expected to get dirty, thanks to an active toddler! The washing can just pile up. But by making sure to keep on top of it, does help. Another sure fire way, if your bathroom or laundry room is large enough, have a twin laundry basket one for lights and another for darks, so when it comes to separation it is much easier. Another great feature, if you have the function available is to pre-set your washing machine, so when back from work, it all already done and just requires you to hang it up.

Get your kit out
Now you've noticed I've not said off! You filthy minded lot, I do mean have it ready the night before and prepped, you may remember the importance of this form my 5 tips on how to not be late post.
