After reading The Busy Trap I'm trying to be more conscious of overscheduling myself and my family. And that starts with a little dose of organization. A few tweaks to your daily life can turn into a ritual. And just like that, life feels more manageable.
One of the small, thoughtless things you can do in the morning is make the bed. It sets the tone for the day to be in order and looking sharp. Plus when you get home after a crazy day of running around it's nice to see that something is still in its place.
