Little Switches Make A Big Difference

SocialMoms and Cottonelle have partnered in sponsoring a fun blogging program. They want to know what little switches in your life make a difference. The most recent little switches I have made in my every day life involve making more time for my husband and I. 


Day to day life keeps all of us really busy. It seems that as soon as my husband walks through the door the evening flies by before we know it and it is already time for bed. Lately I have made a few little switches to make not only the most of our time but also making the time we do have, quality time. The first switch I made was
planning dinner ahead of time. Nothing was worse than being tired all day from taking care of a baby on very little sleep then trying to figure out what to make for dinner at 6 or 7 at night. Making the little switch to planning ahead made it possible to sit down and enjoy dinner with my husband instead one of us running out to pick something up. When he gets home, he feeds the baby her dinner while I finish up ours. Then we sit down together and enjoy our dinner while she plays in her exersaucer beside us. I get to eat a hot dinner now too!

I also get my household responsibilities done during the week in small time increments. Making the switch from long cleaning sessions to little time blocks has actually allowed me to get more done. I was surprised at how many little time slots I actually had. The baby is now able to play for 10 or 15 minutes at a time by herself allowing me to get the dishes done or throw a load of laundry in. You would be amazed at how much you can get done in a few minutes if you really want to! Before I know it I have everything done for the week. These little switches allow me to enjoy the entire weekend with just keeping things picked up. No cleaning on the weekends for me! We have more family time and weekend evenings are now filled with "us" time.

I know these little switches have had a positive impact on my stress level as well as the quality time I spend with my family. There are so many ways to make little switches that make a difference in our everyday lives. Have you made any little switches that have made big differences in your life? My little switches have made a big difference, I would love to yours!
