Watch this quick video and discover Lori’s best three tips on how to set your days up for success.
As we’ve heard in the video, Lori recommends we start focusing on these three things to help us cope with our mom life stresses. Especially when time is limited and our to-do lists overwhelming
Have a routine
I love that Lori emphasized the importance of starting your day strong with a morning routine. She says:
`set your day up for success, without your kids and with some kind of routine’
And here are the things she suggests we include in our morning routine list and make sure we get done before the day starts
The right habits
Having the right habits is all about creating strategies in our days where we do things in the same way. Knowing exactly what we need to do and doing them in the same way, relieves stress and saves some vital brain space. Lori uses the example of driving to work, using the same route. We all know how we often arrive at a known destination without even noticing the journey. That’s exactly what Lori suggests, we do, making use of good habits to limit overwhelm.
Change our mindset
Now, this is the secret that often trips me up. It’s so easy to complain about everything we need to do. But how often do we stop to consider the privilege of doing these everyday tasks? Lori says we need to change the way we think about our time and say yes to our top priorities only. Because these are the things we choose to spend our time on and should be enjoying rather than seeing it as a burden. Like cooking every day. Not always fun. But isn’t it great that we have the opportunity to feed our kids healthy meals every day? It’s simply a mindset change!
