The Halaal Household
Busy Made Easy
Helping The Muslimah Live a Little Easier, With a Lot of Style.
I know that life can be stressful and demanding - and I'm here to help. I specialize in providing - organization, work-home balance, homeschooling, and home management assistance to families. I do not have "ALL" the answers, but I do have experience and I freely share what I *hope* will be
helpful to someone else on their journey.
Spring Is In The Air!
After the long, dark, winter months, spring is literally a breath of fresh air. It’s the time of year when everything in nature is changing and promising new life and new possibilities.
I always get a burst of productivity at the first notion of Spring in the air.
Let's take "Spring Cleaning" to the next level.
My mission this year is to encourage spring cleaning for all the physical, spiritual, financial, mental & emotional clutter. Give yourself a deep cleansing, whether it may be for your finances, your energy, your computer files or your skin. You are more important than anything else. The process of cleaning itself is a great way of distressing and allowing yourself to remove focus from everything that may be taking over in that period of time. More importantly, the subconscious exercise that takes place when you clean helps release endorphins, therefore renewing your well being by the end of the process. When Spring cleaning There’s no reason to strain yourself and rush into finishing the entire house at once. Use an entire week or two if needed, you will clean much more diligently and get a little exercise every day.
Spring Clean Your Body
Your Body has Rights!
You need to remember you are a priority. Take this mission one step further and focus on your body. Start changing your diet to eating more vegetables, fruits and healthy snacks that can boost your body’s energy. Giving your body a break from processed foods, unhealthy snacks and masses of sugar will start making you feel better and less tired. Try drinking half your body in ounces of water per day or take the "gallon a day" water challenge.
To gain even more benefit from your new diet, you could start working out. If you're not used to exercising, doing about an hour every week and then slowly increasing it can certainly benefit you. You’ll be surprised how much energy your body will release and how awake and refreshed you can feel. It gives you a thirst for life and motivation to work harder. This could also influence you to organize your time better. A daily plan either on what you want to achieve can remove the pressure. Having it all on paper eliminates the stress of remembering everything, and it gives you a certain amount of satisfaction and relief at the end of the day.
Another way to give yourself a spring clean is having a spa day and starting with a big pamper day. Cleanse, moisturize and massage your skin and your body. Once you’re renewed, you can try a yoga class or mindfulness meditation. The beauty of Islam is that we have the highest form of mindfulness meditation built into each day. Your Salaat! Focus on praying on time with proper concentration. This will also give you a spiritual and emotional boost. Right away you feel your worship transforming you. Your mind probably needs a spring cleansing also. Given yourself a total body cleansing inside and out will be a great way to de-clutter worries and anxieties you may be fighting. It’s also a way for your body to reach complete relaxation, re-boost your spirit and have you completely invigorated.
I could revel in this place forever, but nature has her ways, so I will revel in this place for as long as it stays. I delight in the delicate, intelligent processes that repeat themselves with such care. I see deeper into the soul of every living and fleeting thing. I walk the earth with lightness in my step, adoration beating in my chest. I am open to beauty wherever I go.
