Time Management for Homeschool Moms

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Dear Homeschool Mom,
You do a lot of different things every day. You have to figure out how to fit in school with your kids, cook, clean, do laundry, direct children, and much more!
Do you feel like you are treading water or drowning most of the time?
If you are feeling this way, I want you to step back and think about some things.
Are you too busy with activities outside of the home? If so, cut back on them.
Are you doing more than you should around the house and not involving your children in Blessing your home? Make the Home Blessings a game and involve your children!
Are you eating well, drinking water, and exercising? Menu plan and eat healthy foods. Drink your water daily. Get in 15 minutes of purposeful movement a day.
Are you on the computer or your phone too much? Close the computer. Put your phone down.
Do you have friends or family who need your help a lot? Learn to say, “No” when needed. No guilt either. Just say NO.
Do you use a timer to help you focus on a task? Use your timer regularly.
Are you homeschooling a large family or have special needs children? Get help if you need it.
You may be managing your time very well for the amount of things you are doing, but you may be too busy all of the time.
It is not failure to ask for help.
It is not failure to hire help with cleaning the house or in caring for the children.
It is not failure to ask your family to pitch in and pick up behind themselves.
You can homeschool and have a clean home and not go crazy. Delegate. Hire help. Cut things out of your schedule. Establish your routines.
Love yourself and love your family. Take care of yourself. You don’t have to push yourself to exhaustion. Use the Do Not Disturb feature on your phone and feel no guilt about it!
I am so proud of you!
Your Zone Mission today is to declutter and dust the dining room.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wipe your windows and mirrors.
My menu plan for Wednesday is pulled pork BBQ. (I am thankful for a son who loves to cook!)
Have a great day!
