With a busy schedule, it can be difficult to find those vital quiet moments, but it’s definitely possible with the right time management strategies. In reality, managing the little things actually play a huge role in giving you more time to do things you enjoy. Your calendar stays organized and your blood pressure low.
As we begin to think about returning to a more routine schedule, time management is even more important. Here are some time management tips:
- Use a family calendar. Your entire family can enter their daily activities which help keep your day organized. Using this calendar especially for school projects, will encourage good study habits and also keep your life a little less stressful.
- Ask your children to estimate how long they think it will take to complete a homework assignment. Offer them a small reward for being close to their estimated time. By offering an incentive for time management and meeting a deadline, you’re helping your child learn positive long-term time management skills and it will help you better plan your daily schedule.
- Housework takes time. Basic cleaning tasks like dusting, scrubbing, and vacuuming have a way of eating up minutes and hours. And if left unfinished, those basic cleaning tasks can turn into major undertakings and the small piles of laundry turn into giant mountains of it. With the added stress of house work, it’s easy to neglect your young student and bury yourself in jobs around the house. Good news: managing time doesn’t need to be a balancing act when you hire Maid Right to handle your home cleaning. We can free up a lot of time that you can use with your children or for yourself.
- A cluttered house can make routine tasks excruciating. Simple things like trying to find misplaced keys before an appointment or prepping the kids for school tend to get drawn out when you’re navigating around the clutter. Whenever you pass something that is out of place or untidy around the house, no matter how small the item is, immediately put the item in its rightful place. Over time, you’ll develop a healthy habit of putting things away as you go in your daily routine and things won’t have as great of an opportunity to pile up.
- Lastly, research time management tips. There are a variety of helpful blogs, websites, books, and magazines that can help you teach, and even learn, better ways to manage your time while your students are going back to school.
