Be More Productive
Until you get in the habit of looking IN your planner, leave your planner open. It's much less work on your part. Now, opening a planner isn't the most energy-laden task, but the thought of opening a planner that is filled with your to-dos can overwhelm you. Make it easier on yourself and just leave it open.
most people only use it to keep notes or quick to-do lists. Which is great, but there are so many reasons and ways to use a notebook.
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!!
