What I wouldn’t give to have another me….
I feel like I’m running a circus in my house most days, but I honestly wouldn’t change a thing! I have a wonderful husband, 2 great kids and worlds best dog!
The list of things I want and need to accomplish in a day is much longer then most would think. Learning to balance a business, your marriage, your newborn, your dog and an almost 6 year old can get hectic.
Here are 5 tips for getting more done on the daily:
1. Make a list
Think about what you REALLY want to get done that day and write it down
2. Ask for help
It wasn’t until last week that I finally asked Chase to start feed the dog in the morning and at evening… He’s almost 6! What the heck was I thinking not letting him help 2 years ago lol. He does great! He knows where her food is stored and he knows what bowl it goes into. Easy Peezy! And poof — you just had help and crossed yet another thing off your long list of stuff to get done.
3. Wake up early
Now… Having a newborn this makes my stomach turn lol. There are nights where I don’t go to bed till 3:30 am. and her next feeding is at 5 am. However, there are days where she goes down at 9 pm and doesn’t wake until 5 or 6 am… Ahhhh… Sleep….
There are times where I’m loading the washer and closing a deal on the phone. There are times where I’m brushing my teeth and applying my makeup. Learning to group a few things together can really go a long way.
5. Take a break
This is incredibly hard for me. I hate having to ask my husband to help me out with stuff because he already is such a great husband and goes above and beyond for me and the kids, but sometimes… only sometimes… I just can’t do it all. I need a break from everything for just a moment and he steps right in and gives the helping hand I need.
I hope you enjoy and use some of these tips!
