Stressed out? Never enough time? This post outlines three easy tips for working moms proven to boost your productivity. Learn how to manage your time better.
Being a working mom means you don’t get a lot of breaks and your days are constantly busy, even when you’re not at work you’re still working.
This insane schedule can make you beyond stressed, while I don’t have a miracle answer to all of your problems I do have some amazing tips for working moms that can help you out.
These tips can help make those busy days just a little less hard and take away some of that unwanted stress.
1. Get an Early Start
It’s important to get the right amount of sleep, they say eight hours is the perfect amount. Not only does oversleeping make you feel groggy when you wake up, but it also takes precious time away from your day.
If you wake up early you’ll have time to adjust and wake up completely before running around which will make your day a lot easier.
Also if you get up before everyone else you’ll get to have some peace and quiet time all to yourself which will put you in a good mood and a great day always begins with a good mood. I’ve shared tips before on How to Wake Early.
2. Develop a Routine
To keep your life organized and less stressful it’s best to develop a routine for yourself, doing this will ensure that nothing is forgotten.
Here’s a little example of a daily routine, it would begin in the morning after you’re up and ready start by planning dinner then go ahead and move the laundry to its next stage and lastly empty the dishwasher.
When you get home from work in the evening go through and do a quick tidy up of the house then after dinner load and run the dishwasher and get everything ready for the next day.
3. Delegate Tasks
Don’t overload yourself with too much, no one can do everything.
Take a good look at your to-do list and figure out which tasks you just can’t do and think of who could do them instead.
For example, your kids could do dishes, tidy up the house, fold laundry, etc. Your husband could walk the dog, pick up the kids, or go grocery shopping.
If everyone else is busy and your finances would allow it you could hire help like a neighborhood teenager. They’re always looking to make some money and they could do tasks such as mowing your lawn or running to the post office.
A working mom often has too much on her plate but that can come to an end for you with these few tips for working moms.
Gone are the days waking up with a dreadful feeling, fearing the day ahead of you.
These tips will not only help keep you sane and organized but they’ll also possibly give you some extra time to take a little break and treat yourself to a coffee. I finally figured out How to Delegate When I Got Tired of Doing it All!
