Column: No place like (an organized) home

0

Close your eyes and tap your heels together three times. Think to yourself, there’s no place like an organized home, there’s no place like an organized home.

Having endured several weeks of home-schooling and/or working from home, we have pushed the organizational limits of our homes to the limit. Are you struggling to find an appropriate space for Zoom meetings and submitting assignments through Canvas? Do you find yourself wondering if there is a better way to incorporate the needs of these new challenges that doesn’t result in a stress-inducing cluttered mess?

The kitchen may be the heart of the home, but perhaps we’re now asking too much of the kitchen. Thanks to the lingering effects of battling a pandemic, the emergence of eLearning and the requirement for many of us to work from home, the kitchen island is getting a real workout. The kitchen island (as versatile as it can be) may not be up to this challenge. All this is in addition to its primary purpose of preparing and serving meals.

Not all homes have clearly defined boundaries that allow you to separate the work and school functions from the rest of the home. Have you considered designating your kitchen island or another area of your home as a “quiet zone?” During certain times of the day, it is a space for quiet where you can catch up on work, your children can read a book, or they can work on a craft project. Let us help you find your “quiet zone”.

Stay home, be Moved.
