      Hello moms! how do you manage your time as a working moms?

    • #215759

      Great question! I’m not sure that I manage my time well at all, lol. I just try to plan as much as possible ahead of time, like meal prepping and planning my kids outfits.And I try to focus on one task at a time. When I’m at work, I focus on work. When I’m at home, I focus on my family and don’t constantly check work emails.

      when I get home from work: all family (kids & I) comes together for 5 minutes for a group hug and a check in as to how their days went. We’ve reconnected, prevents evening meltdowns, and sets a better tone for our relationships. Also: Lots of organization (schedules, lists etc)

      I only work on saturdays and I’m a SAHM during the week. So far this has helped me not have cabin fever anymore and I feel like a better parent having that ‘break’ on saturdays. Try to fit in time with your kid(s) when you can or do little things for them. Maybe have a pre-made snack waiting in the fridge, sweet notes around for them to find, a phone call to them on your lunch break, ticking them in/reading at night to them when you get home.

      I work 40 hours a week Monday – Friday. I am fortunate enough to work from home, but the commitment to work and a family is still a constant juggling act. My biggest advice is give dinner and bedtime all you got. I think putting in those 2+ hours at the end of their day really helps.

      Can always use helpful tips

    • #254554

      I leave work at work and am present when I am at home. It is so easy to get consumed with the to-dos from work that you may be prone to think about this list. But consciously tell yourself that is something that can wait until the next work day. I make sure that my time with this busy toddler is cuddly, stimulating, and fun. Just this morning I spent a few extra minutes that I really didn’t have to cuddle but this is what my son requested. Work may be full time but so is being a mommy.

      I make sure to devote an undivided attention for my kids. No phones. No screens. Just fun. This refreshes us all and gives us the quality family time we all need.

      I work 40hrs/wk out of the home. I keep things simple. I plan meals ahead when I can, and keep things on hand like eggs, sausage, veggies, etc so that dinner can be ready in 30 min tops so I’m not spending all my time in the kitchen when I get home and then rushing into bedtime. Cuddles, read books, play games, just be attentive. Making the time matter!

      Yeah…juggling career and family is a nightmare! I am a mother of twins and I’ve struggled a lot. I’d like to share my “confession” and a few tips, if you have 5 mins time, read it, I hope it helps!

    • #361250

      I do find it overwhelming. After working I try to take my kids for extra curricular, then get home eat dinner shower and homework. Its exhausting. I find i always over extend myself

    • #361404

      It’s exhausting indeed. What job do you do? Do you think you can find an hour a day to start reinventing yourself? This can mean reorganizing your day or activities a bit to find an hour or so. That’s how I started, and eventually, I changed my job, and I got time, finally.
