Spring/Summer Cleaning During CoronaWhy Minimalism?Save moneyDeclutterMinimize time focusing on cleaning  The main purpose we chose to minimize is to simplify some areas of our lives. There are natural benefits to minimizing, however, that we did not realize we would receive. That’s what makes it a good fit for our large family.Here are some benefits to minimalism:More time together. Due to the small space, there are more opportunities to spend time together.Less time spent on cleaning. It used to take us about 3-5 hours to clean one of two levels of our home. Now it takes about 30-45 minutes to clean the entire home.Less time spent on looking for things in the home since there is not a lot of space to actually walk around to look for random things.You can “see” each other when you’re home because the space is so small. In our other home, all of us went to our own silos.Less money spent on utility bills. The power, water, and gas bills have gone down 47% per month.Less money spent on the monthly mortgage. This new mortgage is 73% lower than the previous home. House projects are simple and easy to complete. We used to start house projects and not be able to complete them in the same day or weekend. Now, we usually finish any project around the house in an hour or so.As one can tell, there are many benefits to minimizing. For our large family, it not only works, but it frees us up to do so many other things. Financially, we are more freed up to travel, pay off other bills faster, save, and invest more. Physically, we are less tired and more focused on our life’s purpose rather than on things that don’t matter. Mentally, we are more clear and less chaotic. Socially, we enjoy each other and our family more than before. Whatever your choice is on this journey, just try it and see what benefits you can ascertain from minimizing.Types of Minimalism:1. The Essentialist: The essentialist ascribes to a philosophy of "fewer, but better." Do fewer things, but do them well. Own fewer things, but choose things that will last. Wear fewer hats, but wear them wholeheartedly. Essentialism is a minimalism that focuses on quality, not quantity. 2. The Experientialist: Instead of embracing materialism, experientialism is about collecting experiences. The experientialist will invest in memories and free up resources for activities instead of things. 3. The Enoughist: Enoughism describes minimalism in terms of having enough, not having it all. The enoughist finds peace in voluntarily using enough--and no more--in any category: food, clothing, home size, storage space, flashing links in your sidebar. Enough looks different from person to person. 4. The Eco-Minimalist: The eco-minimalist pursues a life of less consumption in order to reduce their impact on the Earth. The focus is less on the benefits to the individual household, and more on the bigger environmental picture. 5. The Soul Minimalist: The soul minimalist cherishes stillness of soul, and works to keep mental and spiritual clutter to a minimum. Practices of quiet, mindfulness, stillness, and listening are all important here. Music Credit: Mitchell Huntley, Power of Love, “Freestyle".Support the show (https://www.facebook.com/TwoTenPodcastAC/)
Self-Care during COVID

Self-Care during COVID

2020-07-2429:43

Self-Care Self Care is an essential act of loving yourself, we cannot allow ourselves to be too busy or self-sacrificing that we forsake taking care of ourselves.Mindset: The mind is the gatekeeper of your well-being and it determines whether or not you will start the day with a smile or spew your wrath on everyone in your path (your spouse, children, friends, and family). A mind that lacks focus and peace cannot find rest and restoration. It is difficult to make sound decisions and maintain balance when your mind is in a disarray, trust me I know from my own personal mental stress. I have had my share of anxiety, doubt,  and fear that has resulted in disaster. We must protect our minds (our thoughts) through healthy habits.Questions for the Mind:1.      Do you get 8 hours of peaceful sleep at least 5 days out of 7 days a week?2.      Do you have positive expectations for the events that will happen during the day, even though you know that it will be a difficult day?3.      Do you speak positive statements to those you interact with in your home, on your job, and people you meet throughout the day even though you might be given negative energy from them?4.      Do you maintain thoughts of contentment with the life that you have even when you are lacking what you might need?5.      Can you see the good in life challenges even when you are feeling defeated?There are various techniques that you can do to renew and restore your mind:Start and end your day with meditation and prayer. Reading books or listening to audible books that nourish your mind. Soaking in a warm bath. Play good music that is uplifting and inspirational.Swimming.Sunbathing is beneficial for mental health and it helps your body produce vitamin D, so  go outside and bask in the sun, play music or be in silence, whatever makes your mind and heart fill with joy.Take evening walks.Others, explore your city, county, & state. Music Credit: Mitchell Huntley, Power of Love, “Freestyle".Support the show (https://www.facebook.com/TwoTenPodcastAC/)Support the show (https://www.facebook.com/TwoTenPodcastAC/)
Join us as we explore how to have some semblance of work/life balance during the most recent mandates of various Stay at Home orders across the nation. It's so important to maintain balance for the sake of a mom's mental health. Here are some important stats about moms to bring some perspective to the conversation.According to the Pew Research Institute:7 out of 10 women who have kids under age 18 work. Women are more likely to become moms, 86% in the year 2016.In general, women are waiting just a little longer in life to become mothers.Mothers are spending more time in the labor force and on child care of their own kids. Additionally, because we are seeing this generation gap, we are also seeing more time spent on arranging care for other adults in a particular family as well.We are seeing about 25% of all moms operating as a single mom, that’s 1 in 4. About 77% of moms say they feel tremendous pressure to be an involved mom in their kids’ lives.Tips for maintaining some balance: Mandatory family time on a weekly basisDate night with my husband, non-traditional dates amid the current stay at home ordersRegular spa days for relaxation (post Corona)Taking more napsSetting goals (Daily, weekly, monthly)Setting time aside to spend time with the family-either dinner, face time, etc. (Intentional fun time, not just working time)Setting Goals During Corona:1. Personal Goal2. Professional Goal (Business, Work, School)3. Spiritual/Fun Goal-Text the goal by 11am to the Family Group Text (1 point)-Text the accomplishment of the goal by 11:59pm to the Family Group Text (1 point)-Earn 1 point for each of the above. -Earn $10 per 5 points earned (Or $.50, $1.00, etc.)Music Credit: Mitchell Huntley, Power of Love, “Freestyle".Support the show (https://www.facebook.com/TwoTenPodcastAC/)
Cultivating a Life of GratitudeToday we are going to discuss a great topic on Cultivating a Life of GratitudeRight now the world is facing a pandemic with the spread of the Coronavirus. This occurrence truly challenges the faith and hope of humanity, but as a human race we have endured many obstacles including the Civil War, World War I and II, Plagues, and the Great Depression. In spite of these oppositions, humanity has always prevailed. Now it is time to do it again and we can start by cultivating a life of gratitude in the face of adversity. This is a life lesson that will stand the test of times and its implementation must begin in the home.  Life has quickly shifted for all of us and opened our eyes to the simple privileges of living our busy lives and agendas from day to day without an interruption. We are in a place of stillness and reflection that is causing us to realize what is truly important and a necessity in our lives. We can take this opportunity to evaluate our lives.Take advantage of this time to complete a self-evaluation on your career path, relationships, finances, health and dreams. Start by asking yourself a simple question. Am I happy in each area of my life? Write your answer down. If the answer is no, then write a plan of action to change the path that you are on. Do the things you said you were going to do if you had more time to do them. If you are quarantined you have time to learn a new skill set, be silly with your kids, journal, create a business plan to become an entrepreneur. This is a chance of a lifetime to have a new start, a new beginning to live out your purpose, and take advantage of this moment.We have had a lot of in depth conversations about the pandemic and life lessons. We are truly learning how to have gratitude for the small things we have taken for granted. My boys continue to work out on their own as if a football game will be played any day now. Also, my oldest son said to me please stop cooking so much food. We are enjoying family movies, my husband teaches his class lessons online for his students and I am still in the workforce as a pharmacist. We are taking precautions to protect ourselves and our patients.  Now that I don’t have to chauffeur everyone around to games or practice, I have become fascinated with the stock market. It's quite volatile, but I am learning a lot.I encourage everyone to turn fear into faith, tragedy to triumph, and grief into gratitude. The faith and hope of humanity is being restored through adversity. We must count our blessings and take advantage of the time we are given to renew and restore our relationships, health, dreams and much more. Make sure you and your family stay safe and informed about the pandemic from reputable sources such as: CDC: Center of Disease Control and Prevention, WHO: World Health Organization, and your local County Health DepartmentThank you.Resources: World Health Organization: https://www.who.int/Centers for Disease Control: https://www.cdc.gov/Want to write a book?
