Tips for Finding Time and Energy as a Working Mom

Tips for Finding Time and Energy as a Working Mom

My days are filled with chasing toddlers and following up with clients with not much sleep. #AD As I try to balance all of these things, I have made a ritual of taking fresh fruit and getting my morning caffeine and recently added ASPIRE Drinks from Sam’s Club to that routine, especially their delicious Black Raspberry flavor. These tasty drinks are made with women in mind by providing caffeine from a natural energy source. It prevents a crash which is so important when you have to keep your energy up with two toddlers, a household and a business to manage. I took some time to myself and did my favorite creative activity, which is setting my table and wanted to share it with you along with some of my thoughts on being a busy mom. What thoughts go through your mind when you take a little me-time while balancing it all? Here are some of my Tips for Finding Time and Energy as a Working Mom

Do Something You Enjoy and Integrate Other Tasks

I love to set my tables. It makes me so happy and brings back so much nostalgia for setting the table with my mom as a kid. Since I am always having to multitask, I usually turn on a webinar or training course while I set my table to get up to date on news or inspiration for my next project while I find time to indulge in a beautiful tablescape.

Get Natural Energy from Food and Drinks

I have IBS and have to be sure to eat as clean as I can and that includes my energy. ASPIRE Drinks have been a great addition to my routine in getting through the day as a busy mom and I love pairing their new Raspberry Black flavor with fresh berries from my parent’s garden. You can check them out here or at your local Sam’s Club.

Get Help Where You Can

I am all about accepting help whenever it is offered. That is one of the best ways I find time to get the help I need. From a friend offering to pick up something for a photoshoot to delegating tasks to my team or event taking the kids to my mom, being a mom takes a village and I am so happy to have mine. If you don’t live near family or have a smaller support network try things like getting pre-made grocery meals, automation apps, or even bartering your least favorite tasks with another mom to get things done more efficiently and with less stress.

Don’t Expect to Do it All

Half the stress I feel is from the pressure I alone put on myself and I often remind myself when I am setting a table that most things can wait, aren’t urgent or don’t need to happen at all. Don’t be afraid to let some things fall through the crack or have a delay. Moms are human and everything doesn’t need to get done all at the same time.
