MAGIC MINUTES! Things you can do in just one or two minutes

“I don’t have the time!” Have you ever said this? Guilty as charged, I know I have! Or how about this one… “I’m leaving the house in 10 minutes, so I don’t have time to start anything.”

My friend Melissa (we worked together as mentors at Flylady Premium) and I brainstormed the things that we do when we’re waiting for the coffee to brew, waiting at the doctor’s office, waiting for the kids to be ready to leave the house, etc, etc, etc. So go set your timer. It’s time to use those Magic Minutes and FLY!

If you have 1 to 2 minutes you can:

● Put on your “let’s get things done” indoor shoes

● Shine your sink
● Swish a toilet

● Swipe a sink or counter
● Wipe down a mirror

● Start the laundry
● Clear off a hotspot

● Declutter a few items from a shelf/drawer/cabinet
● Straighten the contents of a shelf or cabinet

● Load the dishwasher
● Remove ‘science projects’ from the fridge

● Take out the trash
● Hang up coats in the hallway

● Collect the dirty laundry from one room
● Remove junk from your handbag/purse/wallet

● Remove rubbish/trash from your car
● Check your calendar

● Text a friend or family member
● “Pretty up” the couch/sofa, fluff up the cushions

● Gather up newspapers/magazines for recycling
● Throw out/shred junk mail

● Put on lipstick and mascara
● Refresh your makeup

● Rub in hand cream
● Spritz yourself with water or perfume

● Kiss your partner
● Give your kids a hug

● Practice smiling
● Look in the mirror and say “I can do this!”

● Look in the mirror and say “I love you!”

I mentioned these ideas in a video in May 2017
