Without a schedule to hold ourselves accountable, it’s easy to put off less pleasant tasks. As our responsibilities pile up, we start feeling overwhelmed and don’t know where to start.
Setting aside some time to create a plan of action will make the rest of your day or week much more efficient. Make a list of tasks you have to do and break it down into days of the week by topic (Errands, Bill Pay, Grocery, Self-Care habits, Home cleaning, Kids, etc.). Every activity will have a day assigned to it. Choose the order that will work for your family, and don’t forget to take some time (or a whole day) for yourself.
