Moms, you do it all. From getting the kids up and ready for school to preparing three meals a day, you guys are indeed superheroes.
For this week's blog post, we thought we would give all the busy moms out there a few tips on staying organized while managing the craziness throughout the week. Read on below for a few tips and tricks to make the week just a little bit easier!
Drop the Mom Guilt! You Are Doing Amazing
Every day is a new day and with each new day comes a load of tasks on your to-do list. The first step to getting your list done is to realize that it’s okay to NOT get it all done!
That simple self-appointed pressure you place on your shoulders could be the only thing standing between you and the peace you deserve as a hard-working mother. Weigh out the tasks at hand and choose the ones that most need your attention and start there.
No need for mom guilt, you are still a superhero in your child's eyes even if the entire list isn’t complete.
Maybe you planned to grocery shop today, but it was a rough morning getting the kids out the door and your youngest won’t stop crying. Cut yourself some slack by planning ahead for days like these.
On your next grocery trip maybe buy two of the most essential items around your household like trash bags, tissues, or even toilet paper. By doing so you won’t feel rushed into going to the grocery store and you can allow yourself some time to breathe after a rough start to the day.
Schedule A Meeting With Yourself
Lastly, we recommend you carve out time for yourself to plan the week ahead of you, at least to the best of your ability. Make a list, but don’t put unnecessary pressure on yourself to get it all done in the week ahead.
Even completing half of the weekly list is a score, and we promise your family won’t love you any less.
As moms, you take on a lot while asking for so little. We hope the above list will give you a little encouragement while also giving you the tools to put a little less pressure on yourself.
Set aside time for yourself as needed and remember every little thing you do is an accomplishment.
