The Lean and Happy Home
More time, less stress. How to get your family life in order
By Eva Jarlsdotter
More time, less stress. Simplify your family life using easing 'streaming' techniques.
Ever wondered about the life cycle of a sock in your laundry basket? Author Eva Jarlsdotter asked herself that very question, realising it took over six weeks to be cleaned and make it back into her sock drawer!
This book will show you how to get your life in order, offering a smooth, easy process to bring harmony to your family and home. From coping with never-ending piles of laundry and meal planning to constantly feeling on the backfoot with endless admin from your child's school, this is a modern guide to ensuring your home and family flow. Move over Marie Kondo and Mrs Hinch, Eva offers a 'stream' technique for you to systematically create and maintain organisation - no longer will you spend hours searching for your keys/scarf/paperwork. Instead, that previously wasted energy can be channelled into things you actually want to do. You will stop feeling like you are being chased and take back control into your life. It also empowers children in the household to take responsibility for their belongings and their schedules - kids as young as two can get involved.
Eva Jarlsdotter worked for almost a decade in journalism before taking up leadership roles in communications, corporate social responsibility and telecoms.
