That inevitable phrase...we hear it all the time! We all have those days when it feels like everything just continues to pile up and we accomplish absolutely nothing! Or does this seem more in line with our lives? Do we have a list of house projects, work projects, personal goals, hobbies to learn, friends to meet and family to visit, but we just never have the time? Why do we not have the time? Are we too caught up in ourselves?
ORGANIZE YOUR LISTS
Find out what works best for you! List your home projects separate from your daily house chores (such as laundry, dishes, bathroom cleaning, dusting, since these are necessary on a weekly basis).
WHO GETS PRIORITY
Figure out who needs you! Do you have a friend who is hurting and needs a bit of your time? Is your husband craving your attention, but you have busy with work? Are your children tugging on you for more one on one time, but you are trying to keep up with chores? Find out what is more important, work, family, friends, hobbies, etc. This will help you choose your priorities!
Yes, we all have to work, but we also must have time to relax, enjoy life and party! Throw a surprise party for a friend! Plan a date night for your spouse, you both need it! Or pack a picnic lunch and spend a day at the zoo with family and friends! Oh, and don't forget, we all need a bit of shopping therapy!
IT'S ON MY TO DO LIST
Now that you have made your lists, it is time to get some things accomplished! Check each item or task off after you complete it. This will give you a sense of accomplishment and help you move on to the next task! Try to enjoy your tasks, whether it's spending time with a loved one, playing outside with your kids, cleaning the basement with your spouse or finishing a work project, it will go much faster if you love what you're doing!
