Sunrise Weekender: The Focused Mind Of A Minimalist Homemaker

Sunrise Weekender: The Focused Mind Of A Minimalist Homemaker

By Melissa Marie

Hi there, welcome to the Sunrise Weekender. I am so happy you are here.

Grab your cup of hot beverage and join me as I go over tips to help you, things that I have learned and some fun fluff.

I hope you are not snowed in or too cold but snuggled into your little cottage or big home whatever it is, I hope you are comfortable!


So let us just jump right in shall we?!

Two Things That I Have Learned This Week 

-I have accidentally allowed clutter creep to come back into the house. I have learned that the busier my life gets if someone gives me something I just find a place for it whether I like it or not. Not anymore. I am going to be ruthless in this home, no matter how busy I am it means I need to slow down, clear the clutter and refocus.

Even Homemaker’s get distracted on what needs to be done and no, it is not by binging television.

– I learned that reasons are not necessarily excuses but an excuse is not a reason.

For example, I do my chores while I have the energy so I try to get it done but sometimes cannot finish, the disease is the reason, not the excuse.

If I never workout because I have a chronic illness this is an excuse NOT a reason. I hope this makes sense.


Two Random Tips For You

-Never rely fully on one income. Try to create multiple streams.

-Uncover the home you have always wanted to live in, regardless of the comments of others.

It is your home, your haven, reveal it with pride.

A Mini Challenge For You

Give a stranger some food, preferably a homeless person but a neighbor counts too. Make a meal for them 🙂

So essentially, I learned that having a focused mind as a homemaker and taking away the fluff helps to remind me that being mindful needs to be at the forefront of taking life one moment at a time is vital to a calm life.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
