Whenever I find myself feeling that a certain part of the day is out of control, and nothing is getting done, I search to find ways to make it better. I always find it comes down to changing up my routines.
I love researching routines to see how other people spend their time and what habits they deem important to include in their routine.
If I can’t seem to find the time to get something done, like sort the mail, it’s because I don’t have the task built into a routine.
As a mom, routines help me to run my household efficiently. Routines are also important for kids. But my focus is more on you, the mom.
You will find below a variation of routines to help you get your life in order!
