If you are like me, that means you are a mommy. It also means that you suffer from anxiety and depression. This can make it hard to get anything done. I will share three tips I use to make each day productive.
- Work in time blocks
Set a time on your clock and focus on nothing else but the project you want to work on. For example, if I want to edit a video, I set aside 35 minutes to focus solely on that video. I turn off my Wi-Fi and put my phone away. I avoid anything they might distract me.
This triggers your mind to focus on whatever it is you want to do. This is how you become more productive!
- Plan ahead
This what I love about Trello! I can schedule my entire month. If you have kids, you probably know their routine. You are familiar with when they sleep, eat, play, etc. You also know that your life revolves around them. Soon enough, you start to understand the importance of setting your goals for the day.
- Have an open mind for change.
Babies are unpredictable. So is life. So are people. When you are taking care of babies, it is easy to get overwhelmed with how much you have to do and worry about how much time you have to work on your business.
I used to get discouraged when I didn’t have things go my way. This led me down that dark path of self-loathing and self-discouragement. I start to question my whole purpose.
I later realized that I need to open myself up to change.
When you have an open mind for change, you know things can happen for you, not just to you. Now, you can create the mentality of “although it didn’t happen for me as I wanted, I can make some changes and get it done.”
Don’t be too hard on yourself. However, always try again!
