As working moms we know how hard it is to get things done. There’s just never enough time in the day for everything, so when I came across this article on four ways to find more time in your day, I was interested in seeing whether or not I could implement these ideas into my daily/weekly routine.
Here are the four ways mentioned in the article with my commentary:
- Have a Plan– I try my best at this one and agree that if everything is planned out well, I have more time in my day. I have an ongoing shopping list, plan my weekly Shabbos menus in advance, and have a weekly routine that we mostly follow.
- Simplify and Say “No”– I think I’m a little too good at this one. I try my best at KOAMC, use household shortcuts and barely ever over-extend myself.
- Get Up Early– No can do. I’m just not a morning person. I don’t even want to try this one.
- Do the Hardest Things First– I don’t know about this one. I think it depends on the order of priority more than the effort that goes into something. Sometimes I like to get a bunch of the small stuff out of the way before I start with something big.
What do you think? Any other ways you find more time in your day?
Until next time,
