Staying Happy As a Working Mom

Posted Dec 06 2009 4:12am
It is never easy to stay organized when mothers have busy work schedules and a family to attend to, as well as other responsibilities. She has to worry about getting the family dinners on time and nursing the kids with holistic treatment when they are ill. There is just so much to do when you are a mom, working or not.

The key to success moms is getting your priorities straight. If you shop for groceries once per week, you can cut back time by buying enough to last longer, so that grocery shopping isn’t part of your weekly plan.

The extra hour or more that you spend at the supermarket can be spent on quality time with the family. This is only one solution to managing your time, but it is certainly a start. In addition, you can make up a list of your duties, starting with the most important tasks first, and working through the list one at a time. I found this to be a great solution for managing time, since when you work hard to complete one task, the rests fall into place with ease.

Some ladies spend an hour or even one half hour in the mirror, and it is probably because they are not feeling good about themselves. It takes approximately five minutes to put make-up on, and to stand in the mirror longer is only taking up time. Hair is also important since our person in general sets an impression. If you spend longer time than needed doing your hair, try finding nice looking hairstyles that are less complicated to style. This is also a great process of the time management solution. Clothing should also be limited but appropriate for whatever it is that you doing and it should not take less than a couple of minutes to get dressed.

As a mom, you need to find time to relax and unwind too. Some will watch their favourite show with a Slingbox or PC while others will take some time off and head to the spa or gym.

Whatever you do, managing your priorities mean more time to do the important things and staying happy in all aspects of your working and parenting life holistically.
