We all know that being organized can lead to being productive in our day to day lives. However, so I am learning, being organized can actually lead to being a better mom as well.
An Organized Mom Makes a Better Mom
As a mom, we know that we are always going to have something that will need our attention. There will always be a deadline that needs to be met, an area of the home that needs to be cleaned, a child who needs a little extra attention and well the list can go on. Constantly we feel like we are flying by the seat of our pants just to get through the day. Expecting to fall into our beds at night and just pass out from exhaustion. Sadly, as we lay in bed we think about the day and all of its events instead. Replaying all the various “plot twists” that happened and wishing we had handled it all a little better. As a mom, we will all have days like this. However, it is possible to go to bed with a clear heart and mind.
Tips to Help You Become More Prepared, Organized and Happy:
- Your day starts before you even go to bed the night before: Set the coffee pot, lay out your clothes, pick up around the house a little and have your list ready for the next day before you go to bed. This will keep you from waking up and instantly feeling overwhelmed. An overwhelmed momma can quickly become a stressed out momma.
- Begin your day with the Lord and laundry: Start the washer and grab your Bible to get in the right mindset for the day. This will help you serve your family with a better or servant-like heart and get your laundry washed at the same time. Not to mention…That coffee you fixed the night before is sitting there waiting for you.
- Have a routine in place: This one takes time. No, it won’t go perfectly the first few days and yes it will need to be tweaked but it will help keep you and your children on track. Not to mention cut down on a few surprises.
- Stop overfilling your to-do list: You are only one person. You need downtime just as much as everyone else in your house. Hire help if it is in your budget or better yet let your children take on some of the duties that they can handle.
- Set a cutoff time: Cutoff times have been huge for me. They have allowed me to have time to simply enjoy my children. Sure this doesn’t mean that my laundry always gets folded or the dishwasher is emptied before bed. What it does mean is that I am able to sit down with my family and simply be with them. You know without running around or working on a project like I have been all day long.
