It goes with the territory, but many of us moms have grueling busy schedules to adhere to each day, that often, come to the end of the day we can feel deflated, not good enough and riddled with mom guilt. It isn’t easy and each day can often be the same. But, it doesn’t need to be this way. Being a mom is rewarding and fun, and our days can be just as satisfying if we know how to tackle them to get the most of the time we have. So I thought I would share with you four ways that you can smash your day. You’re welcome!
Feeling comfortable on your feet.
Most of the time us moms are on our feet all day. It might be walking children to school or the bus, it might be cleaning the house or running errands, we can often feel like we don’t stop. But, while most of what we do is unavoidable, we can ensure that we are comfortable on our feet. A decent pair of shoes is critical, and even adding extra support such as insoles from websites like www.biopods.com can help us to feel comfortable and agile. Being able to feel good while being busy is essential to our wellbeing. No one wants sore or tired feet, and muscles come to the end of the day.
Planning, planning, planning.
There is no hiding from the fact that planning your day means that you will ultimately smash it. Writing a list first thing in the morning is a great way to set out your priorities for the day, and crossing those items off the list feels fantastic. Enabling you to give yourself a little fist pump each time. However, you can take planning to a whole new level with things like cleaning schedules and power hours, as well as meal planning a prep. Websites like www.livingwellspendingless.com have a greats election of tips and printables to get you going. Sometimes a little investment in preparation and organization can free up more time once you implement them.
Waking up with a positive thought.
There are no two ways about it; a positive mindset is always going to help you keep going even when things get tough. But starting your day with a positive thought is the ideal way to set up your mind for how you want to think and feel for the rest of it. A positive thought process and outlook will serve you well, and help you to remain focused on all the good stuff.
Transferring the list to tomorrow once the day is done.
Finally, once the day is done and you have no more time, you need to sit down and transfer anything you didn’t do onto a new list ready to be added to the next day. This is your way of signing off for the day and enabling you to clear your mind and relax. It can help you get some sleep, and also feel refreshed knowing you have a headstart on what needs doing tomorrow.
I hope these tips help you smash your day.
