Leave Periods Of Your Day Open
Whether you make a vow not to clean until after lunch or simply block off parts of your day, it's important to take a break from cleaning. Otherwise, it's easy to focus more on your house than your family and/or yourself. 

For me, I've made a point not to clean (other than dishes) until right before lunch and I've already noticed a difference in the amount of time spent playing with my daughters. It's truly the focused moments together I love most about motherhood and I'm embarrassed to admit how many days I've wasted cleaning instead of being present. Setting aside times where I don't clean has made a huge difference.
