Two Time Management Tips for Working Moms

Have you ever wished that there were more hours in the day? Do you find yourself running out of time just when there’s one more important thing that needs to be finished? Balancing the competing demands of work and family is never easy working mom. It requires a methodical strategy to get through the day without shortchanging one or the other. To help you get more tasks accomplished during your day, take a look at a few of these tried and true time management methods specifically geared for working mothers:

Use Cooking Time More Efficiently

You should try to spend your cooking time wisely and make it go as far as you can. Why not double the recipe is that you are using and cook for eight instead of four? It takes just about the same amount of time, but produces two meals instead of one. The extra cooked food can be frozen and be eaten a few days later, or can be stored overnight refrigerator and used for tomorrow’s lunch. Meals that keep well work best with this approach, including recipes for casseroles and soups as well as recipes for ground beef.

Keep Work and Motherhood Separate

Another secret of effective time management is not stepping on your own toes. That’s why you need to keep your work life and your home life separate. This part is especially tricky if you are a work-at-home mom. If your work allows you to make money from home, you might already be one step ahead in the time management game because you eliminate the need to commute. But then it becomes even more important to separate your work and home life. Choose your office hours and stick to them. Choose your family hours and stick to them too. It’s the only way to bring the best part of yourself to both parts of your life.
