Do you tend to let the dishes pile up? Eventually having a hard time getting to the sink or using the counter space? Does frustration frequently take over when this occurs? Instead of getting to the point of frustration, why not create some new habits. Habits are so hard to create, yet so easy to break (Except those bad habits, they die hard, don’t they?). We say we are going to start doing something and for a couple days we shine at it. Then one thing happens and bam out the window that habit goes. But what if it were a habit that benefited your life in a positive way? Would you be more apt to stick to it?
Waking up every morning in a good mood all because you have a clean kitchen sink. There’s not a dirty dish in sight. Not having to struggle to make breakfast, your kids lunches, or even to make your morning coffee. All because you took a couple extra minutes and cleaned up last night’s dinner. Who knew something so small could make such a world of difference in a home every day.
I bet you want to have a clean sink, but by the time dinner is done and all the other nightly obligations are taken care of there just isn’t any time or energy left. But, if you think about it, yesterday is the past so why are we waking up to reminders of yesterday in our kitchen sink every morning?
3 ways to get a clean sink every day
Got kids? How about making this a thing the two of you do together every night so you can spend some time together. Or, have two siblings do the dishes together – it’ll help them learn about teamwork. When I was growing up my sister and I did the dishes every night. She would wash and I would dry. Though we hated that chore with a passion, some of my most prized memories with her are standing at the kitchen sink.
Maybe you would rather do it solo. Sounds inviting. Why not make that a time that you put your earbuds in and listen to something to help pass the time.
Or, you could always give the dreaded chore to whomever didn’t cook. If you happened to cook, then the people who enjoyed the food get to clean up the kitchen.
Want a clean sink when you wake up in the morning? Then I challenge you to take 20 minutes at the end of the evening to insure the next day starts off on the right foot. Just do it for a month, see if it makes a world of difference in your day. I would venture to say you’ll be glad you did.
