I have never taken juggling lessons…however, some days I feel like it should be a required skill for moms! Can you relate?
Finding a “Balanced” life can be hard at times. It is something that I work on each and every day; typically when I get up in the morning.
I plan and organize using my calendar that is ALWAYS with me and keeping To-Do lists, so that I am able to meet deadlines and get things done. I have also found that having one calendar that serves as both a business and personal calendar is a lifesaver for me. Everything that I need is outlined in one place giving me a much better idea of what is happening in all areas of my life.
When I know I have a difficult task ahead of me, it’s something that I get completed early in the day. Outlined in the book, “Eat that Frog” by Brian Tracy, he explains how important it is to do just that. Doing what we would like to put off gives us a huge sense of accomplishment and gets our day off on the right foot!
I also enlist the help of my children. We work together as a family to prioritize what is really important for us.
Lastly, but far from least…I schedule time for “ME.” My exercise time, self-development time and things like a visit to the nail salon are all ways that I take time for myself. Its important to have down time. Important to recharge.
I don’t always achieive balance, its more a journey than a destination.
