Planning ahead doesn't have to be complicated or elaborate. You don't have to plan your week with cute, colorful stickers and fun, decorative washi tape. It can be as simple as your favorite planner and a pen.
Planning helps you see where you can be more efficient. Choose one day of the week to be an errands day. After you drop your child off at school, do your errands it saves time, gas, and money. Not only that, but it also helps you manage your time better.
If you don't set up a healthy routine throughout your day, then you'll be left with feeling defeated before you even get out of the door. A routine isn't a schedule. It's simply an order in which you do things. Instead of getting the kids ready first, take some time and primp yourself. Even if that means....dare I say it....waking up a few minutes earlier GASP!!
