I am happiest when I’m working
I also love the sight of a long and intricate to-do list. The satisfaction of checking that list off one by one does something to my soul 😍
But does this make me a bad mom? Do my friends and family roll their eyes whenever I answer their question “What are you up to today?” Absolutely not.
Because “working” to me also means-
✨Working on myself
✨Working on relationships
✨Working on my sidewalk chalk skills with my 7yr old
✨Working on my (non existent) cooking skills
I’m just a busy 🐝 . And I think busy people get a bad rap because A) others are uncomfortable with their level of work ethic or B) they are afraid they may hit burnout status.
I can’t even count how many times I’ve heard people tell me that I have too much on my plate, and I understand where they are coming from. But I believe when you find that sweet spot of knowing how to choose things that spark fire, your enthusiasm and energy levels only go up. Next time someone you know wants to take on the world, let them. In fact, cheer them on! Send them a “YASS GIRL 🙌🏻” text and watch them work magic ✨
And to my busy 🐝’s, don’t let anyone put out your fire 🔥
Being a busy mom AND bossbabe can feel like a never-ending juggling act. But fear not! Get ready to slay the busy game with these time management tips for busy moms that I use every day! (Well I try to) Let's dive in and conquer your hectic schedule while still making time for yourself.
Summer is here, and while we cherish time with our kids, it's vital to prioritize "me time." Let's explore quick tips for staying organized and enjoying summer to the fullest.
1. Create a Flexible Schedule:
Strike a balance between structure and spontaneity by designing a flexible summer schedule. Outline essential tasks, meal times, playdates, and outdoor activities. This framework ensures you have planned moments for yourself.
2. Plan Ahead:
Take time each week to plan activities with your kids. Involve them in choosing outings and projects. Prepping meals and snacks in advance frees up time for self-care.
3. Organize Outdoor Essentials:
Keep outdoor essentials in one place for easy access. Create a beach or pool bag with towels, sunscreen, hats, and swimsuits. Have a basket near the door with sunhats, sunglasses, and bug spray.
4. Declutter and Streamline:
Use the summer break to declutter and streamline your home. Involve your kids in sorting through toys, clothes, and books. A clutter-free environment saves time and promotes a serene atmosphere.
5. Designate Kid-Friendly Zones:
Create play zones in your home to encourage independent play. Set up an art corner, reading nook, or sensory bin station. These dedicated spaces foster creativity and minimize scattered toys.
6. Utilize Time-Saving Tools:
Harness technology for organization. Employ voice-activated assistants to set reminders. Utilize online calendars and scheduling apps to manage commitments efficiently.
Self-care is essential for moms. Implement these tips to enjoy summer with your kids while carving out precious "me time." Embrace the joy of summer, involve your kids, and relish in the beauty of both family time and rejuvenating moments. Happy organizing, mommas!
