Creating An Allergy Symptom-Free Home
Spring is in the air, which means allergy season is in full bloom.
My children and I are all allergy sufferers, which is why creating the best home environment for our health is critical. One way to do this is by knowing and reducing those triggers that cause our asthma and allergies to flare up.
Reducing Stress In Your Busy Life
The house is a mess, the kids need a ride to school, the car keys are missing, the dog just got out of the yard, and your boss just scheduled a mandatory meeting first thing this morning...
...no wonder why you feel stressed out.
Good-Bye Winter! Time To "Pre-Spring" Clean!
The arrival of March is a very exciting time for me. For us New Yorkers, it means we have one month left of winter. Before we know it, spring will be in full bloom!
Every year during the month of March, I do the same routine. I wrap up my de-cluttering tasks and I start strategizing my “pre-spring” cleaning routine.
Pre-spring cleaning is the time when I clean all the semi-annual “hard-to-reach” areas in my home. It is a time where I take a short break from my usual cleaning routines and clean the areas that I have left behind.
Mastering an Effective Cleaning Routine
Welcome February……the time when we are halfway into hibernation and anxiously awaiting spring. It’s a time to reap the awards from all the de-cluttering you have done in January. February is the perfect month to concentrate on light surface cleaning and dusting around your home. Leave all the deep cleaning until spring and focus on mastering an effective cleaning routine.
A New Year, A New Beginning
Happy 2013! How is your new year going so far?
It has been a long but productive 2012 for me. The end of 2012 was a tough one because Hurricane Sandy turned so many people’s lives around, including fifteen of my relatives…but after an extremely emotional three months, we continue to work hard, move forward and have faith that 2013 will be better.
Healthy Holiday Cleaning
The holidays are here and gifts aren’t the only things we are bringing home to our families…
…dirt, germs, colds, viruses, and anything else that lingers in those crowded stores and on those crowded lines are coming home with us!
Whether we like it or not, it’s true, which is why I cannot think of a better time to start cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting my home. But what is the difference between the three?
“What happened, where is the rest of it?”
“It’s gone, it’s all gone.”
She dropped to her knees and sobbed like I have never seen before.
…This is a conversation I never thought I would have, but unfortunately will always remember.

Great Ways to Start the Fall Season off Right
September is here! Summer has come and gone and the kids are back in school. As I anxiously await the cooler weather and beautiful fall foliage, I remind myself how September is always the perfect month for me to get “back on track.”
Embracing Time for "Me"
I am just too busy. I don’t have time for myself. Sometimes I wish there were two of me. I feel guilty doing something for myself….
Let’s face it. The majority of us live hectic, busy lives. And as we work harder and harder to keep up with this tough economy, life can sometimes seem overwhelming. So when do we find time for ourselves?
Independent You: A State of Well-Being
Stress, bills, work, chores, jobs….no wonder most of us have a hard time feeling happy. Sometimes it seems like we live in a constant state of “being overwhelmed.”
But what about all the good we do? Are we ever praised for our efforts we make each day? What about the love we have for ourselves? When was the last time you patted yourself on the back and said, “good job?”
Happy Moving Day!
For some of us, moving can be one of the most stressful times in our lives. It is very difficult to change the emotion of stress into enjoyment and excitement of change and fresh beginnings.
