ENERGY HACKS TO SCHEDULE YOUR TIME WITH KIDS
1. Indulge in Park time: All kids love park time. What we mother need to realize is the fact that park time is also good for us.
Spend a few moments amidst nature and you will be able to gather your thoughts together. Throughout the day, we are so busy in our hustle bustle that we do not listen to our inner voice.
Even 5 mins of solitude amidst nature helps you to connect with your inner self. Take a walk in the park, listen to the chirping birds and rediscover yourself amidst the tranquility of nature around you.
2. Keep a Journal With You:
Most mothers complain of the fact that they keep forgetting things to do. It’s not actually our fault.
Look at the huge list of thinks that we do all through the day. We might be mothers but at the end of the day, we are also humans. As humans, we end up forgetting the chores that we need to attend.
Do not fret, we have a solution for that too. Keep a pen and notebook in hand.
Every time you remember something, simply jot it down on the paper to help you remember them. I have recently started using a journal from Matrika Press which is proving very helpful.
3. Prioritize Your Chores: There are 10001 things that we need to do in a day. Now, it is an inhuman task to fit all the chores into mere 24 hours.
That leads us to mastering the art of prioritizing. Make sure, that you prioritize your day in such a manner that you schedule the most important task when the kids are supposed to take their nap.
Try and avoid scheduling important task during their wake-up time as you will keep getting distracted. This way not only will you not be able to concentrate at your task at hand but also you will take an awfully long time to complete the same.
4. Go for play dates: Kids love to go for play dates. You will be surprised that play dates can also be fun for mothers. Mingle with fellow mothers and you will soon get along as a house on fire.
You will realize, that you are not the only one who is juggling all this stuff with kids , there are others too working on the same as you.
You get to let your frustration and learn a few tricks on handling from them.
ENERGY HACKS TO CONCENTRATE ON YOURSELF
1. Take Proper Meals: The biggest challenge for a mother is to have a nutritious meal. We suffer from this eternal guilt trip that eating is a waste of time as it takes us away from our loved ones.
As a result, we end up gulping down whatever we get in front that is quick and fast to eat. Most of the times we end up gorging on junk food instead of healthy ones.
Try and include important nutrients like Vitamin B 12, Vitamin D and Vitamin C from your daily food intake.
They help to spruce up your energy level by quite a few notches. That’s not all include green vegetables, salads, fresh fruits and nuts in your daily diet.
2. Don’t Starve: With motherhood comes the eternal lengthy battle of losing weight. As a result, most of us end up starving ourselves. We are so obsessed about shedding the kilos that we are fine with starving our bodies.
By doing so, we bring down our energy level. Try and skip anything that’s laden with sweet and fried. Also, indulge in lots of soups.
Not only does it help to keep your weight in check, it also helps to include all the vegetables in your diet.
The above are few simple energy hacks hacks that will help you spruce up your energy level and also make you enjoy your stint as a mother to the fullest.
