For those of familiar with FlyLady, you'll know immediately where I'm coming from today. If she is new to you, please check out www.flylady.net. This is a terrific website about Marla Cilley's baby-step program for getting your house (and yourself!) in order. I've been a FlyBaby for awhile, and I'd grown my morning and bedtime routines to some ten or a dozen items. But in my current depression, I had seen these routines as so overwhelming that I was doing nothing. Sometimes NOTHING, sometimes not showering for days, not even washing my face or brushing my hair.
So it's time to start over. Tonight I will start a new bedtime routine, just 3 items long.
1 - make sure my kitchen sink is clean and dishes are put away
2 - check my calendar for the next day; it's mostly empty but do it anyway
3 - wash my face and brush my teeth; no moisturizer or other frills
