busy-mom-timemanagementTime-Management Tips for Time-Crunched Working Moms

What to do when motherhood eats your minutes? Use these hacks to take the fine art of doing more with less time to the next level.

  1. Get enough sleep. If you do nothing else, prioritize your sleep needs so you can thrive. 
  2. Establish sane work hours. Before you commit to taking a new role, validate the alignment of expectations for your work hours with your employer.
  3. Embrace your power of “No.” You don’t have to attend every PTA meeting, chaperone every field trips or take on every work project. 
  4. Set reachable daily goals. A to-do list is useless if it’s too ambitious. What’s the point of writing down unachievable tasks? You’re not a superhero and shouldn’t try to be. 
  5. Don’t even try to multitask. People perform better when they give focused attention to one task at hand. 
  6. Let go of perfection. It doesn’t exist, therefore you can’t achieve it. 
  7. Unplug from the internet. Surfing the web is a huge time-waster for parents and children. 
  8. Have some fun along the way. Stressed-out people aren’t all that productive. You need relaxation to avoid burnout at home and at work. 
  9. Get PRESENT,  so you can be productive. Mindfulness allows you to tune into the task at hand. Practices like yoga or meditation can help you focus, and focus drives your productivity. 
  10. Stop owning other people’s stuff. How often do you hear yourself saying, “Never mind, I’ll do it myself”? Probably more than you’d like. Repeat after me – DELEGATE, yes commission the job to someone else to give you peace of mind.

How to tell if you are a Arts & Crafter

Then, you are a Arts & Crafter . . . nothing to be ashamed of, unless you do not have a project calendar to plan out how you will finish your art – tist creations!

I struggle too with my ADHD when I’m on sites such as Pinterest, Ikea and Martha Stewart. I get lost in collecting all the projects – that I must admit, I will never in my lifetime have the time to complete all the projects I have collected. But, I do want to finish a lot of them so I have created a Project Calendar.

(TIP: I set a timer when I am on sites such as Pinterest – it helps not to waste time)

I pick one or two projects every month – depending on the project. I put it on my calendar, I create my shopping list (if needed), I gather all my supplies and concentrate on that one or two projects for the month. Currently, I am planning out my projects so that I can I have the ones that are for Christmas gifts completed by December 15th.

Plan out your projects – remember Slow & Steady wins the race.

Peace & Harmony ~ Cheryl
