Quick Giveaway: Simple Steps: 10 Weeks to Getting Control of Your Life Book – 5 Winners!

April 24, 2012

UPDATE: This giveaway has ended. Winners will be announced soon!

If there’s one thing I am in dire need of it’s to get into a better cleaning routine. I was doing very well when I was sticking to the Morning and Nighttime Routines I had set-up for myself. Over Spring Break, I remembered an idea from Simple Steps: 10 Weeks to Getting Control of Your Life Book of cleaning out one drawer/closet/cabinet a week and instead I cleaned out one a day. I focused mostly on my kitchen cabinets and a few of our closets. It was so nice to see a little bit of accomplishment at the the end of each day. I’ve been doing everything to make sure that they stay clean and organized, too!

I’ve mentioned this book a few times in the past and it is definitely on the list of my favorites when it comes to “self-help” books. Several years ago, a few of my family members and co-workers got together and did the 10 week program. It was amazing how much it changed my daily routines for the better. Each week, you are given four new steps and the idea is to continue the ones you’ve done the weeks before, as well. They not only focus on cleaning but on health, exercise and setting goals for yourself. Some of the steps are very simple and are probably already a part of your daily routines. What I loved the most is that they give you great information for each step and ideas for how to go about incorporating them into your life.

I decided to dust off my book and start up their “program” again here real soon. I always love to give my readers a chance to go along with the little challenges I give myself so I’ve decided to do a quick 24-hour giveaway on this one.

Use club soda to clean stainless steel. Cheap and more effective than cleansers and it won’t scratch your surfaces. Count me in the drawing please.

I am always on the hunt for easier ways to do things. Right now, I try to do one room or one thing each evening after work so im not overwhelmed do everything at once and my weekends are free to relax.

Make a list for yourself, long term and short tern goals. Cross them off one thing at time, and don’t beat yourself up if they’re not happening as quickly as you like. Relax and savor the moments you can control.

I’m more likely to get things done in the morning before work. After work I’m useless, all my energy has been used up during the day.

To stay healthy, I take my dog on a 2 mile walk each night after work. It not only keeps me in shape but my dog also!

In order for me to be successful to reach my goals, I have to get a friend involved. I need to be accountable to someone else besides myself. So, if I win this amazing book, I will grab a friend and get with the program!

I need this book. I have tried the one thing a day and one thing a week. I start out good but always give up and things go back to the way it was. I guess my advice is never give up.

My tip is to have things close by…example is my changing table..i make sure the wipes, diapers, plastic bags for smelly diapers, extra clothes, pair of socks are all by the table. Saves time and my sanity!

Staying organized and having a place for everything makes clean-up easy for you and your family. Then yhey can’t debate that they don’t know where anything goes!

I really need this book–have no ambition to get anything done around the house..

28 Jessica April 24, 2012 at 5:04 pm

I break goals down into simple, easy steps. Even the most basic goals can be broken down and it makes them much easier to manage and reach.

I have learned that making small and attainable goals is key to keep on track. I am a full time student with 3 kids and a hubby in the military so keeping on track is essential to me. I would love the book so I can definately keep my family on track since my hubby is deploying for a year.

I make a small to do list every day for the following day. Most days I can cross everything off, if not then I add it to the next day, sure makes my life easier. I also have found that if I do a load of laundry every day rather than doing several loads in one day it really makes a huge difference.

Make small reachable goals and reward yourself when you reach them!!

When trying to achieve goals. I find that by using positive affirmations, they seem easier to achieve.

Write down your goals, do two lists, long term and short term. Tackle the short term list daily and when you can, add in something from the long term list. Don’t beat yourself up if you don’t get everything done, there’s always tomorrow :)
