Setting up a daily schedule for stay at home moms can get a little overwhelming with all the other responsibilities you have for your kids, house, partner, etc. This article explores adding structure to your days from stay-at-home moms who have successfully managed to start and stick to a daily schedule so that you can get the best out of your day without missing out on life.
A productive weekday needs a set schedule for important tasks. An example weekday schedule for a stay at home mom routine would look like this:
Take kids to school
Pick up kids
Wind down time
You can use your own variation of essential weekday items in your schedule as you see fit in your everyday life.
After a long, hard-working week, you’d want to set up your weekend for a successful relaxation and recharge to start your next week fresh and ready to tackle life like a super mom. An idea for a weekend schedule would be something like this:
Get/Make mommy’s favorite coffee (Pumpkin spice latte anyone?)
Nature time (walk in the park, easy hikes, nice nature drive)
Movie time with a partner or the kids
Bedtime for kids
Mommy's quiet time
Notice how the weekend schedule is focused on your mental health, quality time, and recharging your energy to dominate the craze of Mondays 🙂
What if I can’t stick to my schedule?
Mommies know that sometimes we just get overwhelmed with unpredicted circumstances and issues be it kids’ schools, visits from family members, or even just not feeling mentally ready for some of our daily chores. The good news is that it is totally fine and happens to most if not all of us. However, it’s crucial to have a set schedule to guide you through weekdays and weekends. Even though, sometimes a routine or two might not be applicable for certain days, you’d still be in a much better position having a schedule than not having a guiding light to help you get the most out of your days.
Moms are superheroes, but even superheroes need a structure to go about their days to avoid mental overwhelm and the fear of missing out on their daily life. Just remember, it’s totally ok to have some downtime when needed so that you can recharge and boost your productivity for the days to come.
