If you are a single mom like me, you know how time consuming that can be. When I have to work and homeschool my kids at the same time, there is a lot to be done, but I have found a way to give myself a few extra hours in the day. I wake up before them and have me time. I also grocery shop just once a week, pay all bills online, and I lean on friends and neighbors, and once in a while I hire someone to help with cleaning. I also dish out a few chores each day for the kids to do.
- I always wake up an hour before my kids, pretty much as the sun rises. I need this alone and quiet time to meditate, relax, sip coffee, and plan my day.
- I’m a big list person, I write everything down that I want to accomplish for the day. Work and personal life. That way I stay focused and on task.
- I only grocery shop once a week and I add things to my virtual shopping list through my Google home by voice during the week with things I will need.
“A lot of moms ask me how I do it all alone and stay sane and to be honest, I don’t know. I just keep in a constant state of survival mode which I’m sure has its consequences. But here are some life hacks I have figured out to give myself a few extra hours a day and less stress that I hope can help you mama’s too!”
