Each night before bed, my family spends a few minutes cleaning or straightening something in the house. Sometimes papers get filed, sometimes dishes get washed, sometimes a load of laundry goes in. Now my cleaning time is cut down because each day I spend less than 30 minutes doing some cleaning!
Small things that take a few minutes: -cleaning the baseboards in one room -dusting two ceiling fans -hand washing dinner dishes -wiping shelves in the fridge -starting a load of laundry -emptying all the wastebaskets -taking one pile of "junk" and putting it all in the correct places!

The key to seeing results from exercise is consistency. Even if you can only work out for 10 minutes at a time....do that 10 minutes religiously. Be dedicated to your workout time. That consistency will make exercise a habit and you will see results!
My life has a lot of baseline stress, and the past few years have seen a lot more stresses piled on top of that. My solution has been to "prescribe" myself 10 minutes a day resting with my feet up. Even just a few minutes helps lower my stress levels.
