“If I only had two more hours in a day, then I could get it all done.” We’ve all said it. Unfortunately there isn’t a magic formula of how to add more hours to our day; however, there are time savers we can consider to help make our day more efficient. Read these tips to make your life as a busy mom a little more manageable.
5 tips for the busy mom
1. Get organized
Spending time looking for your keys isn’t the best use of your time. Take a weekend to organize your house and fill out a day timer to manage your busy schedule. Simply being organized will reduce your stress as a busy mom.
2. Eliminate time wasters
Observe yourself for a week. Make notes of how you waste time. Maybe you’re spending too much time on Facebook or running around due to lack of organization. Once you figure out your biggest time wasters you can solve them with some time management.
3. Plan out your day
Are there places you can easily run errands on your way to and from work instead of saving the errands up for nights and weekends? As a working mom, it will save you time and stress if you plan your time to make it run as smoothly as possible.
4. Nighttime relaxing
As a stressed mom, you need to take time for yourself. Whether you spend time watching your favorite Netflix show or taking a bath, it’s important that you take a moment everyday to relax.
5. Designate your days
Those messy floors, big piles of laundry and long grocery lists can be daunting. Designate days where you can get certain chores done so that it doesn’t pile up and stress you out.
Follow these helpful tips and get ready to see a change in your day-to-day life as a busy, working mom.
