We all know moms are very busy. They always want to know how to get more done during the day. Here are four tips to be a little bit more productive and get some more done with just the twenty-four hours in a day.
Morning are a great time to get yourself focused and ready for the day. Start your day not by checking emails or social media but by eating a good breakfast. Use this time before the kids get up and the busy day starts. This is a good time to start a to do list and get the order of things.
There are so many things that get done during the day. Some of them don’t always help you be as productive as you can you be. When you are making the list of everything you want to get done during the day cut out those little things that don’t end up being productive. Things like being doing laundry and cleaning the house are productive. Doing all these things get stuff done but only doing one load or one room won’t make you feel productive.
Cut your to-do list in half. Take the less is more approach. Start with a shorter list and as you are able to get those done then add two it. This can be as few as one or two tasks or more like nine or ten. The point is that most people are more likely to be able to cross everything off if there is less.
Take more breaks. It doesn’t matter what you do on that break. This will let your brain get some more blood and oxygen to help you think more clearly. These breaks will greatly increase your productivity.
There are five more steps to go over that I will go over in the next post. These tips can be used in anything. From just getting things done at mom or in a business like Scentsy.
