Exercise First Thing in the Morning

Get it out of the way. If you don't do it then, you'll find excuse after excuse not to do it later in the day!

Staycation

When I have a schedule day off (or a few days) or have a vacation, but I stay home; to help stay focused, I make sure to pack my lunch the night before as if I'm going to work the next day. This applies to M - F (my work days).

I find eating on a schedule or as close to one is also helpful.

Fun and Quick Blitz

As a mother of 5, we stop what we were doing when I call BLITZ. We enjoy working as hard as we can to clean quickly and beat the timer. Sometimes it is a quick blitz of 15 mins other times, an hour. At times, we compete in teams to get chores done quickly.

Nobody can do everything

I prioritize three things to do, one relating to each of my annual goals. I have a health to-do, a spiritual to-do, and a financial to-do. Then, if a day falls apart and I don't get to everything on my list, I have made at least one step toward advancing my goals and the day has been a success :)

Time Management

Depending on what room you are usually in that last half hour before you leave either set your kitchen timer or an alarm clock so it goes off as a warning that you need to wrap things up and get going.

Stay Flexible in your Plans

Although I like to have my day organized and planned and hope it runs smoothly, as a mom to 3 young kids it really helps to stay flexible in my schedule. Instead of sulking over the missed opportunities, make new ones.

The Meal Planner and Shopping List

The meal planner and shopping list do it for me. I go over my meals for the week changing anything I'm allergic to or am not particularly fond. Print my shopping list and go shopping! It helps when cooking to know all the ingredients are there and nothings missing. It's makes life so much easire.

Designate one place where you always put your keys (and wallet or purse) and train yourself to use it!
