I know you have little time for anything outside of work, family, and home.
I want to help you find ways to use your time to get things done and still have time for yourself. So many people tell you to “schedule your self-care in,” but that’s not a solution. Where are you supposed to put it?
Let’s look and see if we can find more time for you.
Instead of thinking daily, let’s go with weekly.
You have a few hours at the end of each day before bedtime; this adds up to about 20 hours during the week. I know you come home from work tired and feel like there’s no time to get it all done. But with some changes and improvements, you should have time for most, if not all, of it.
Making sleep and good food a priority means you will have more energy when you get home and feel like you can do more.
Also, building in about half an hour to plan meals and look at the week will make your evenings much smoother.
Take a few minutes while you change your clothes for yourself. Do a short meditation or a few deep breaths. Dance while you cook — that’s exercise.
Start a load of laundry in the morning and unload the dishwasher.
Whoever is home first puts laundry in the dryer, and everyone loads the dishwasher with their stuff.
Twenty hours during the week and more on the weekend. You have plenty of time! Put it to work!
