Why you need to learn about time management as a mom
We're all busy moms and because we're so busy, it's easy to put off personal development like learning how to best manage your time. I've been there.
However, learning how to manage your time effectively can give you heaps of rewards! You will actually gain control of your time and be able to get more done.
How do you learn about better time management? I'm a huge advocate of reading blogs and learning from other moms who have been there and done that. Even if you give yourself 30 minutes a day to learn, you'll be amazed at the difference it makes!
After becoming a parent, I realized that I needed to learn to manage my time at home better. I could do it at work, and those skills could be applied to my home life as well. And for everything else, I relied on these bloggers to help point me in the right direction.
I learned to set long term goals, focus on the task at hand, and how to get rid of bad habits. I also learned why I needed to become a morning person!
Here's a list of 10 women bloggers who write about time management skills. These ladies have influenced my own time management techniques and give wonderful advice. You can't afford NOT to read them!
Rachel at Smart Moms, Smart Ideas is a mother of three that focuses on time management strategies for moms as well as organization and parenting (among other things). You can find some FANTASTIC advice in this blog, plus I love some of the recipes she's posted. She lists all of her topics at the top of her website so it's easy to find what you're looking for.
