8 TIME MANAGEMENT TIPS FOR WORK-AT-HOME MOMS
The previous two articles were super helpful and like I’ve said I have already adopted some of these best practices (as of yesterday), however this list really spoke to me as a stay at home, work from home mother. Blog Clarity has mentioned a few things that really made me think. Take a look at the list. The one that really stood out to me was #7 Make time for the kids. I always make time for the kids but being a stay at home, work from home mother, I have a hard time separating the time. I usually find myself running around trying to both simultaneously. Yesterday I blocked off my time and it was wonderful. I wasn’t looking at my phone or computer for emails but instead I put everything away and played with the kids. When they were preoccupied I just sat and watched. I found this time was a nice escape and break which is #8. Since I work long after they go to bed I had no guilt like I imagined I would of. I just enjoyed the uninterrupted time together.
