When you’ve had a really busy period and things are getting on top of you, the only way to deal with it is to sit back, take stock and decide what is the most important of the jobs to get sorted here and now. I sometimes make a small list of things that I feel are making me anxious. Though I am not one for making lists generally, there can be some relief in actually writing out and noting what needs doing. If the house needs a jolly good clear out, there are some excellent agencies that actually do that. I’m not sure myself how they achieve this miracle without bloodshed on either side, but they offer this service. If it’s not quite that bad but the homestead could do with a jolly good spruce up, engage a cleaning agency to help with this, especially the important areas of kitchen and bathrooms. Sanity restored is worth the small fee.
