Tip to Help WAHM’s & SAHM’s Find More Free Time

How can I get more done?

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.

Make Change a Real Part of Your Life – Start Today

Yes, I Am Talking to YOU

We have all heard it said that today is the first   day of the rest of your life. In our minds we acknowledge the truth of the statement and then just go on about our day. Lets be honest here, most of us are long overdue for some changes.

Maybe today is the day to actually take that to heart, and begin to make the changes. Most of us might agree that it sounds great, but don’t have the slightest idea how to start making changes that will start the process. It really is not hard once you set your mind to succeed.

Maybe I can help. Here are just a couple of suggestions that will make it easier to take the first step. I recommend that you keep in mind that just like losing weight, this process takes time and effort. I know now that consistency is the key to winning so stay in the game.

  • Turn off the TV. Trust me, it is easier than you think. Simply push the button. Once done, you will be amazed how much extra time you have in your day. Just think, now you actually will have time to help others.
  • Books will Rock Your World! Libraries are free, you can usually save time by putting books you want on hold, they find them and put them aside just for you. (Good use of your tax dollars)
  • Podcasts and Audio Books can help you absorb books and work those mundane household tasks at the same time! Those modern inventions enable you to take multi-tasking to the extreme.

I promise that if you actually decide to give it the old college try, you will love the results. I never knew learning could be so much fun, and just think of the great example you will be setting for your family. How about a big High Five!
