The Power Hour


THE POWER HOUR…..doesn’t that sound majestic and mighty??  Maybe even magical!!

I have something to confess…..I like to watch cleaning videos on YOUTUBE.  Embarrassing, I know!  Somehow and in some way it motivates me to clean!  Watching Hoarders on tv does the same thing to me- only I gag a little just watching that show!!! EWWW!

So, I found a sweet lady on Youtube called StyleMomxo.  She does something called the power hour- it’s a fun and easy way to get tasks done in your home, in just one hour!  You will be amazed at how much you can get done when you focus, with no tv, phone or social media! (wish I could convince my kids of this when doing homework!) Yes, Music is allowed but only if you blast it!!

Simply write down 5-8 tasks that you want to get done that day, set a timer and play a “beat the clock” of sorts!! Here are some examples of the tasks she writes down for her Power Hour…

Fold Laundry

Make bed

Dust dresser

Vacuum master bedroom

Unload dishwasher

Reload dishwasher

Clean the backseat of car

Make chicken marinade

What do YOU think??  Would this be something that works for you??  Cleaning in one big chunk instead of spreading it out during the day??  Sounds interesting to me!!  Let me know if you give it a try!!  I might just need a nap after that hour!! LOL!!

    Ummmmm…..Where was this cleaning girl when she was a young girl and teenager???? Oh, I know. We didn’t have any cleaning videos to watch….Just MTV…And I wish I had your ambition now… to clean in my house. Seriously, I am so proud of the woman that you are!!!! <3
