Life is overwhelming. You got this!
Here are 10 ways you can simplify and delegate tasks to make life more manageable.
1.Create a Daily Routine: Establish a structured daily routine that includes specific times for meals, nap/rest, playtime, and bedtime. A predictable schedule can help you and your children feel more organized and in control.
2. Prioritize Essential Tasks: Identify the most important tasks that need to be completed each day and focus on those. Let go of non-essential tasks or consider delegating them to others. (The Movement Lesson Time Management Journal available to those in the support program is a great resource to help with this. You can find it in the "ML Important Support Info" product - 14 day free access to our child support program then $30/month, CLICK HERE).
3. Delegate Household Chores: Assign age-appropriate tasks to children, such as tidying up their rooms, setting the table, or helping with laundry. This not only lightens the load for parents but also teaches children responsibility and valuable life skills. If you have a child with needs, be creative and find ways to help them be involved in household chores.
4. Meal Planning and Preparation: Plan meals for the week in advance and consider batch cooking or using slow cookers/Instant Pots for convenient and time-saving meal preparation. Alternatively, explore meal delivery services or meal kit subscriptions to simplify the cooking process.
5. Use Technology to Streamline Tasks: Take advantage of digital tools and apps for organizing schedules, creating to-do lists, and managing household tasks. Online grocery shopping and home delivery services can also save time and energy.

10. Take Care of Yourself: Remember to prioritize self-care. Allocate time each day for activities that rejuvenate you, whether it's reading, exercising, practicing mindfulness, or pursuing a hobby. Taking care of your own well-being enables you to be more present and effective in your parenting role.
Remember, not all of these suggestions may be feasible or suitable for every parent, so it's important to adapt and choose what works best for your specific circumstances and resources.
Enjoy the movement education,
