They keep organizers and day planners
Only multilevel planners help you organize your whole family’s life and not miss anything. Inside, organizers can look like this:
The list should include both major to-do’s (daycare appointments, scheduled vaccinations, bill payments) and passive to-do’s (those that are not tied to specific dates). The latter can be done when there is so-called “transitional time” – unforeseen situations, cancellation of events.
This also applies to the menu for the week. It is made in advance, so that it is more convenient to buy products.
Moms who have several children understand that it is impossible to cope with everything at once, and nobody is insured against neurosis in otlichaetsya syndrome. So they prioritize and distribute things according to importance. For example, today you can do without cleaning, but devote time to a walk or a joint trip to the movies.
They focus on one thing at a time.
These moms also turn off multitasking mode when something important needs to be done. They turn off the phone and alerts for social media messages, new emails, and other inboxes while important tasks are being done. The exception is for really important and urgent calls.
They get rid of “time eaters.”
Speaking of gadgets. Another important tip from moms with many children – control the “time eaters”: the evening TV, smartphone, Internet, phone chatter or chats in messengers. Set aside a fixed time for them in the evening and learn to turn them off after your alarm clock rings.
