My to-do list would make most people's head spin. That is the hard truth I live with, and I am totally ok with it. The fact is, I may seemingly do "A TON" in a day, but the fact that I homeschool, and am self-employed opens up my schedule to do things while everyone else is busy. It creates a type of flexibility that I love! So, I have learned to multi-task pretty well. Did you know that there are 7 things you can do while drinking your coffee in the morning to help you day run smoother? It's true! Check them out!
Shopping List - I have 3 kids who like to eat....a lot. I try to plan my shopping trips so I go only once a week, but let's keep it real. I go more than that. I daily running list of what we need is a must.
Menu Plan - See previous "shopping list" - A menu plan is a must have. It is a great way to start the day or the week knowing what you are going to serve for your meals so you can shop more efficiently.
Call People Back - The morning is a great time to call people back you have been missing all week, or make those appointments.
To Do list for the Day - I used to say that I didn't have enough time to be organized, but my day does run smoother when I have a checklist of what needs done. Making a quick to-do list only takes a couple minutes.
Answer Emails - This is big for me, but probably not such a big task for others. Take a couple minutes to answer those emails while you are sipping on your coffee in the morning.
Plan ahead- Hey, I have gotten so good at my morning coffee productivity meetings that I even find time to plan ahead. Open up that calendar app and see what is coming up, what you need to do to get ready. It's just that easy.
Pencil in some me time - While you have that calendar app open and you are sitting there multi-tasking like a BOSS with your coffee plan some me time. Seriously...just schedule it right in that calendar. Time to read a book, time to go for a walk, time to soak in the tub, whatever you need. You need to make time for you too!
