Tips to Fit It All In

My last post was about struggling to fit it all in. My days keep getting busier and busier and, without school, I haven’t had much of break from the boys. They have been fighting and getting into everything.

Because of this, I decided to find some tips to make your life (and mine) easier. How can we fit it all in?

  • Write down the things that you need to do. Simply having a list in front of you (and the joy we get from crossing things off of our list) may be helpful enough for you. However, if you notice that you keep moving tasks from day to day without accomplishing them, you might need some more help.
  • Realize that you are not a superman (or woman). It is a pure myth that we can get it all done! Repeat after me, you are just a person and you only have twenty four hours in a day. You are not going to be able to do everything! Cut back on some things or delegate help to make your life a little easier.
  • Don’t expect perfection. It is human nature to be able to want to do everything and have it done perfectly. However, that is simply not doable. If you are able to give up on expecting perfection, you might just be able to get some more things done, instead of stressing about how well you are doing it.
  • Make time for yourself. It is important that you take care of yourself so you are able to do the things that you need to do. Make sure that you eat right and get enough sleep. Make time to relax every day. You may notice that you accomplish more when you take breaks!

It can be really hard to fit it all in. Actually it is a pure myth. Nobody gets everything done. You are doing the best that you can. You are not a superman (or woman). Make time for yourself every day and you will notice that you are accomplishing much more!
