8 Ways to Find Feel Less Frazzled and Time in Home

In the ping of our devices to the endless items on our to-do lists, we are often pulled in several directions at once. However, when you are spread too thin, you not only end up doing less, you probably aren’t having much fun performing some of it. Thankfully, you do not have to be a fulltime yogi or move on a lengthy retreat to reclaim your own time and bring a little Zen to your home.

Learn to soothe those frazzled nerves, so use your time more efficiently and find more distance in your days to do what you love with those eight viable tips.

1. Eat when you’re hungry; sleep when you’re tired. So simple, yet so few of us follow this information past the time of approximately 3! Anxiety eating, skipping meals and staying up too late can wreak havoc on the human body. Cut yourself some slack and take that nap or refuel with a nutritious bite when required.

2. Slow down. When you end up feeling frazzled at home, take a breath and literally slow down. When you walk slowly, you are less likely to bump into things, forget things or leave messes lying about.

3. Finish what you start (unitask). Now you have slowed down, focus on completing just one task at a time. Whether you are making the bed, sitting down to consume or helping your child tie her or his sneakers, just do that one thing until it is done. Multitasking is only going to drive one nuts.

4. Reduce screen time. Make a plan in the morning for how much time you will spend on email, browsing online and watching TV. Frequent email assessing, texting during meals and late-night online shopping can make us feel less connected and more stressed. If you feel you’ve been overdoing it, then cutting back might do wonders for restoring your awareness of well-being.

5. Keep a couple of simple habits up. The key word is “few.” Trying to take on a lot of changes at once is bound to backfire. But sticking with a handful of patterns until they become habits — such as setting the table for dinner each night, making your bed in the morning and cutting off the TV an hour — can be incredibly relaxing.

6. Cut back on visual clutter. Each to-do list, schedule and unread piece of email your eye lands on is a reminder of things undone, and just looking at them can grate on the nerves. Obviously, we might all want immaculately clean homes without piles of things threatening to slip off the tables — but when a major decluttering spree is not in the cards, at least we can conceal some of it behind closed doors. Stick piles of paper and papers in coated baskets, or conceal them in a closed cupboard.

7. Buy less. Buying new things can be a major time drain: shopping, unpacking your finds, carting the boxes into the curb and arranging your new items at home — and that’s not even mentioning the effect it has on our pockets. There is no requirement to forgo all buys, but purchasing even a little less and considering more can save some time and hassle.

8. Wake early. Set your alarm for 10 minutes earlier than usual tomorrow. Don’t spend the extra time planning, looking at your telephone or watching the news. Rather, just sit there. Breathe. Maybe stretch a little or sip some water. Notice how you are feeling afterward — great? Relaxed? More ready to greet the day? If so, think about repeating the procedure the following day and the day after that. Oh, and guess what? You just meditated.
