As stay at home ,work at home moms, we all struggle with getting all the things we would like to do, done.We are all trying to find more time. I know I sure struggle with that, and it is often a topic I read about in the forums.
Of course, one of the suggestions is that you prioritize a list daily, and follow the list. That is great advice, and I should be more diligent about following that. Prioritizing is something that all of us NEED to do, otherwise we simply let so much time get wasted.
One of the things that I have on my priority list, is feeding my brain.I am pretty sure that most of us intend to do that, but where does a stay at home, work at home mom, find a block of time to actually read a book? I have struggled with that for a lot of years.Too bad we can’t simply buy more time.
As a matter of fact, I am embarrassed to admit that I pretty much let that goal slide for too many years. In the last couple of years however, I have learned from my kids the beauty of an ipod. I now listen to audio books and podcasts while I do other stuff.I listened to a great podcast this morning while I took my walk.
I have to tell you, that felt good to know that I was checking off two boxes at the same time. I felt energized from the walk, I learned a lot, and hopefully it burned off a few calories to boot! I guess you can teach and old dog new tricks after all.
