Is your schedule looking as overwhelming as mine? Try these three things to conquer your crazy schedule and take back your life!
Make a list of priorities
Often in life, we get bogged down by all the stuff that fills up our time. There’s so much to do! Laundry, cooking, grocery shopping, homework, more laundry, housework, carpools- the list goes on… and on.
How can defining your priorities help your schedule? When you’re getting overwhelmed, hopefully it can help us remember what’s really going to matter at the end of the day. Sometimes, it’s easy to lose track- especially when choosing between something we need to do and something we really want to do.
For example, I *might* get a little caught up when I’m working on craft projects. It’s easy for me to get sucked in and blow other things off- which is fine sometimes! The trouble comes when I have to choose between continuing my project (because it’s a critical moment!) or, say, starting dinner. The choice is easy when written down in black and white, but when caught up in the moment, it might feel harder to choose.
Is focusing on craft projects bad? Of course not. Are there times it could be the top priority? Yes! Having a list of priorities can help you change gears and focus on what’s most important for the moment.
To Do List
There’s a reason to do lists have been around for so long. They work! They can help you focus on getting your must-do list done more efficiently so you can move on your want-to-do list. It’s a great place to group priorities and get organized.
There are so many ways to make lists. Paper and pencil, an app on your phone, a wipe board, or countless other ways- which one should you choose? Start with something that seems to fit your life, then swap out if it isn’t working. There’s no right or wrong way to do this- just start experimenting!
There are may places to learn and grow! As you explore various aspects of your life, priorities become more clear and you find ways to balance your schedule and life.
There’s a free training event coming up designed just for women and moms like you and me. Yes, FREE. You don’t have to find a sitter, book a room or get a flight for this training. You can watch right from home!
