s a mom, there is so much going on in your life that it can sometimes get overwhelming trying to figure out what to do each day and to also get the list of things done within a set period of time. I know what it can feel like when you have to juggle it all and still try to keep a positive look at life.
There is so much of a high expectation placed on moms and it can sometimes feel intimidating to accomplish everything. It does not have to be that way, however. Maximizing your time and effort each day while balancing family life and work-life can be accomplished with different strategies throughout the day.
Here are some of the tips and tricks that I use to try to help me maximize the time that I have. Just a reminder, I do not have the manual for motherhood (I wish I did), but I try to find ways to make my journey more manageable each day and to share what I do with my readers. How do you maximize your time at home? Please feel free to ask your questions or concerns in our FORUM section. I will be happy to help you!

1. HAVE A SCHEDULE
You have probably seen this in most of my posts, that having a schedule is important in maximizing your time throughout the day. Prior to starting your day, jot down the day's events and schedule, making sure to list your priorities first, then appointments and tasks throughout the day.
Also, I recommend not fully packing a schedule because you want to be able to leave room for spontaneous, unexpected events that may occur, especially with kids. For example, you may have an unexpected call from the school, etc to pick up your child or any last-minute errands that have to get done. Keep it as simple and flexible as much as possible.
