Fly-Lady - "flayushek" - came up with an American housewife Marla Scilly. Perhaps, its history is stopped separately.
Over the years, Marla tried unsuccessfully to become a model hostess and somehow organize their lives. However, all attempts to maintain order in the house turn into failure. Just 2-3 days after general cleaning of dirt and trash the most incomprehensible way back to their seats.
And so it dragged on, it has not happened yet, "terrible" - from Marla's husband has left. Finally, he told her that most just can not live in a cluttered, uncomfortable house wife along with him "raspustehoy."
Marla hated myself, fell into a deep depression, and even went to the hospital. There, she was enough free time to think about the situation and come to certain conclusions. Marla came out of the hospital by another person. She decided to move forward in small steps. And for that, I came up with a specific schedule.
These simple rules and became the basis of its system. It appeared that this approach works. Marla began to share their victories with other women. Gradually, she got a lot of like-minded.
Why the "fly"?
FlyLady - Nick Marla Scilly, which she used in various forums. English «fly» has two meanings - "Fly" and "fly."
Later, one of the fans of Scilly Marla offered to take the word as an abbreviation FLY. She deciphered it as «Finally Loving Yourself». What can be translated as "finally began to love myself."
In fact, the transcript accurately conveys the meaning of the idea of fly ladies.
Strictly speaking, the system fly lady - a set of specific rules and principles of housekeeping. But do not confuse it with economics courses. After all, the main idea is to learn "not to focus" on doing unpleasant and tedious work and stop to feel miserable.
Invented for housewives, the system is "caught" in almost all European countries. As it turned out, it is perfectly suitable for working women. What is the secret?
How it works?
The basic principle of start-Fly Lady says: "Your house does not become dirty for 1 day. And it will not be perfectly clean for one night. " Start small.
To begin, select any one place in your home and keep it in perfect purity. Marla recommends starting with the kitchen sink.
Try to accustom ourselves to the fact that the sink must always shine - no matter what happens! Even if you are dead tired and have no strength to do the dishes - just remove it from sight. But the sink - a "sacred." Always Wash her to shine. Accustomed to the first step, go to the second.
Watch for a
The approach is very simple. If a woman - a lady - is not able to follow, even for themselves, unlikely it will be able to watch your house. There is a certain logic, right? True fly lady can not afford to look messy and sloppy.
Getting up out of bed, take a shower and apply a light make-up. Discard the old robes and worn "slap". It is best to wear a nice suit home.
Shoes, according to Marla, have to be laced. Why is that? Yes, everything is very simple! This will save you from the temptation to lie on the couch. Continuing to tie and untie the laces - employment tiresome. And lie down straight into the shoes likely would not allow conscience.
The principle of "zoning"
Mentally break your apartment for four "zones". Remove one area throughout the week. But do not waste it on boring for more than 15 minutes a day. Agree 15 minutes of cleaning - it's not scary.
True, they may begin moral issues. Just remember the strict mother or grandmother's voice: "If you start to do something, you should bring it to the end! ". You, too, right?
It will help to break stereotypes ordinary timer. Set it to 15 minutes or more - no, no! Very quickly you will find that 15 minutes - a huge time. During this time, maybe redo a lot of cases.
"Hour House Blessings"
This is - another fundamental concept of the system. It sounds very lofty, right? What is behind this?
It's just a weekly house cleaning. But! The key word here - "hour". One. That is, you should not devote this tedious work all day long. We are confident that this time it is impossible to remove? Do you remember that day, for 15 minutes, removed the "zones" throughout the week? Mud something much less!
What to do in an hour could not, without regret postpone next week.
Even the word depressing. But where from it - routine - getting around? The system involves a lady fly "their" just two - Morning and evening.
Routine - a list of small things that are repeated every day. Typically, this morning routine - make the bed, wash and freshen up, make breakfast. Evening - wash the dishes and the sink, wipe the plate, to do them.
Moreover, careful grooming, favorite to become must-see destination. All the rest should not take more than 5 minutes.
Perhaps, in every apartment there are several places where, as if by magic, collects different stuff. As a rule, it is a coffee table, a shelf in the hallway, or bedside table. This is the "hot spots» - hotspots.
Lady Fly pay one minute a day extinguish these small fires. Just go all the hotspots and spread things out.
Fly Lady are deeply convinced that it is impossible to organize the trash. It can only be destroyed. To make this activity fun and cheerful invented a special game.
About once a month you must take up a large garbage bag and set the timer for 15 minutes. During this time you need to collect in the package 27 "extra" things. Moreover, the "thing" is considered to be anything - an unnecessary piece of paper, a broken hairpin, etc.
After a few months, you just do not know her apartment. True to those ladies who have small children to play the game will have more often.
Another step towards "raskhlamleniya" apartments is the principle of "buying something new, be sure to throw something old." In this approach stops trash accumulated in the building.
We leave for the flight
As you can see, the system fly lady is very simple and straightforward. Due to fatigue, but daily cleaning, dust, dirt and trash just do not have time to accumulate. And what we used to call "spring cleaning" is not required. So, you will have more time for myself. And life is not "kill" to have a real lady.
