  • Working Together on Your Home While Working from Home by Nancy Meck, NAPO Member since 2015 Ample time at home is amping up people’s focus on lingering house projects. It’s also highlighting wants and needs previously overlooked (or purposefully ignored) during normal daily routines. Everyone in a household goes through this examination of the “un-dones” and “what-can-be-betters” and boom – each person finds themselves holding a whopper of a "Honey-Do" List they’ve drawn up for themselves or one that someone else has so generously drawn up for them (the gift that keeps on giving!).

Our collective “new normal” calls for a new protocol in achieving order and reducing stress. If I can suggest a single mantra to focus on through these uncertain times, it is this: embrace the essentials.
