Tips and Tricks for the Busy Mom
Moms go above and beyond everyday and put the happiness and needs of their families before their own on a regular basis. For all our busy mamas out there- where are a few tips to help make your lives just a little easier.
Meal prepping has seen a huge increase in popularity the recent years- it's one small step that moms can take to make sure dinners are ready for the week! It might sound like a lot, but it doesn't have to be preparing entire meals. Even just taking the time on a Sunday afternoon to prepare some of the ingredients (measuring out, chopping, etc.) makes a world of difference when you're tying to throw together a meal in a pinch!
Lists, Lists, Lists!
There's no doubt that it's difficult to try to juggle business life, home life and kids. We know what we need to get done, but there's nothing more frustrating than realizing at the end of the say that you forgot something. It might seem old-fashioned, but having lists (whether paper and pen or on your phone) helps keep everything in order. Make a list for each day or event and never forget anything again. Added bonus? The satisfaction of crossing things off as you go!
Keep track of it all
Kids and work mean backpacks, purses, and laptop bags galore! Make sure to never lose track of those important items with Cube Tracker and gain the ability to trace back your steps at your fingertips. This little tool will connect to your phone via Bluetooth. You’ll never want to leave home without this little guy again! Bonus: We all know how easy it is to misplace our phones too! Your Cube Tracker can also work backwards to help you find your phone!
Teach your kids organization skills
Get the whole family involved! When you've got a lot on your plate, take the opportunity to involve your little ones by assigning them chores or other activities that need to get done. Delegating tasks will not only be a major help for you, but will teach them lessons of responsibility, organization, and independence that they will take with them.
Separate Work and Home Life
There is nothing more annoying than coming to your family and not being able to actually be home with them. Life as a busy mom means having to juggle both lives, but that doesn’t mean it should take you away from your favorite people. Being able to leave work and just focus on home can be a difficult balance to manage, but it's also a very important one. Take time for yourself and make sure there is a separation from your two lives- because there is nothing more important than your happiness and your time with your loved ones!
