If you’re a hands-on parent juggling work and family priorities, know that you are not alone. Every day may feel like a sprint as you take care of your kids, help them with their schoolwork, and work from home. Then, there’s pets, cooking, cleaning, and so on.
Your to-do list reads like a never-ending marathon.
So, if you’re just about overwhelmed and feel as if you're drowning, take control of your life with these tips:
1. Reduce your to-do list
If you have 10 items on your priority list, learn to be more cutthroat and focus only on the top 3 or top 5, then move on from there. Give yourself sufficient time to accomplish each task and stick to your schedule.
2. Be flexible
There are good days and bad days. Be prepared to adapt or adjust as each situation arises. Don’t forget to pat yourself on the back for every task you accomplish.
3. Take a break and breathe
Sometimes, all it takes to stop feeling flustered is to take a few minutes to recalibrate. Drink some water, breathe deeply. Take Marz+® Shine Spray — a natural fast-absorbing energy booster full of vitamin B12. Then, be ready to start fresh.
