Work from the home setup is becoming popular for a lot of people these days especially since the pandemic happened. Work from home mothers are struggling and find it very challenging to balance between work and being a mom.
Worry-not because you are not alone! Here are 7 tips to help you stay productive and on track while being
Instead of multitasking and feeling pulled in different directions, use the TIME BLOCK technique.
You do only ONE activity during that time block. For example, from 10 am to 1030 am you would only reply to emails. You won’t do your laundry while replying to emails basically.
= Keeps you sane and reduces anxiety.
= Nothing is more motivational than checking things off the list.
= Serves as a good brain dump.
= (It is A-OKAY if you do not finish everything on the list.)
Even if you do not stick to the plan, just writing meals out, and shopping accordingly can help you save a lot of time.
Try it out for a week before dismissing it completely.
You are already in the kitchen preparing meals, why not cook extra and freeze that for a rainy day?
You could also batch cook marketing content.
AKA ask your husband to help.
Remember, he isn’t ‘babysitting’ when he helps around with household tasks. He is ‘parenting’ and ‘adulting’ just like you are.
For me, personally, YouTube and Spotify are of great assistance while doing mundane and repetitive tasks. I either listen to the Holy Qur’an or music or catch up on podcasts.
This is the only kind of multi-tasking I recommend.
= Keeps you committed.
= Helps you focus on your goals.
= Gives you encouragement when you are feeling low/demotivated.
= You have someone to discuss your ‘work issues’ with.
Take a pause and breathe. Sort out your tasks first thing in the morning and use your time wisely. Setting up a schedule will be very helpful in being productive. Having an organized and well planned out timetable will make daily routines easier for you.
