Household Chaos

I’ve hit household bottom. I can’t remember the last time I dusted, the plants are wilting, and I had to wear my yoga shorts and top as undergarments today. In other words, time to start at least one load of laundry.

Yet it has been a great week. We’ve enjoyed delicious home cooked meals, we’ve shared quality family time, and I was happy about publishing a fun Wellspring Guideposts. How can these contradictory experiences coexist?

When I feel overloaded, I turn to a CalmUp® Journey. The tendency, of course, is to want to push and get started with the tasks right away: water plants, clean up dishes, give the dogs a bath, etc. Instead, by slowing down and completing the 7 Levels of the CalmUp® Journey, I rise above household chaos.


  1. How do you cope when you feel overwhelmed? Do you talk to a friend, go around feeling stressed out, etc.?
  2. In what area(s) of your life do you experience chaos? And in what area(s) of your life are you excelling?
  3. By the end of my day, my home was clean, my laundry was done, and I wrote this blog. What do you do to rise above your own chaos?
