Though, a mother doesn’t have super powers, she is often referred to as a ‘super woman’. This title is nothing wrong because as mothers, we have to multitask to take care of all the things at great speed and highest efficiency. Though, mothers can fail too, but they surely give their highest dedication and get things done in the right way.
To keep her motivated and manage everything efficiently, mothers also need a few tips and tricks. Moms have a lot on their plate- their kids, the family, the home and sometimes, their jobs too. So, they also need to plan, organize, prioritize and manage things.
Some Of The Following Tips Can Be Helpful For Busy Moms For Getting Things Done At The Right Time In The Right Way:
You need to calm down and de-stress yourself. Because, the more you get worried and take tension, the more things get complicated and messed up. So, you need to keep cool to be able to understand in the right way better and provide better solutions. Taking too much stress can also take a lot on your physical and mental health. So, take rest, enjoy some ME time and get refreshed with a new enthusiasm.
You need to plan things with a checklist of To-do list. Keep a calendar or personal organizer to plan and keep track of things, so that you do not miss out on important events and dates. This also helps you to manage, both home and office works. Planning also helps in prioritizing, which is our very next point.
Put important things first. Do not try to do all at the same time. Prioritizing things help to organize and reduce redundancy and re-work. This way you have smaller chunks of work to be finished at a time before you move on the next. Break down a big task into smaller components and achieve smaller step to reach a bigger goal.
Do not take everything on yourself. Take help from others – like grandparents for managing kids over a weekend or ask your spouse to help with things in the house. Even if you don’t have anyone in the house to help you, seek online services. Learn to delegate certain things to your older kids as well. Delegating is not shying away from your responsibility, but just asking for help so that things get done properly.
This is very important to keep things in the house in an orderly way. This helps you to get things done quickly, when you know what is where. You can label cupboard or use sticky notes, keep dedicated places for things in the house and insist that everybody keep things in their respective places.
As a mother, you have a lot of responsibilities, but in the process, you need to take care of yourself too. Do not try to compare or compete with yours, as that will leave you more stressed. Everybody is different and they will do things differently and there is nothing wrong about it. You will also receive a lot of advice from others about how you do things, keep the good ones and you know best what to ignore.
