I’d like to do a blog post with a collection of tips for starting the new year with the least amount of stress as possible.
What’s your #1 tip?
From Briggs — Schedule regular alone time for yourself even an hour per week. Truly time of your choice not catch up on housework or bills time. A nap, a guilty pleasure or treat, a book, whatever but give yourself space! Secondly, nurture your marriage regularly. Thirdly, schedule down time with and for your kids. Everyone needs a break.
From Sarah — Ease into it!
From Michelle — Start slow. Don’t add in all the subjects at once. We started with half of our planned subjects the first two weeks, and just did one week in two. It makes a huge difference, giving everyone time to get back into the routine.
From Stacie — Make sure you set aside some time for you during your day.
From Jennifer — Set realistic goals!!
From Diana — Take out all the unnecessary things from the routine/schedule so you can properly evaluate time needs. No internet in the middle of the day. No outside commitments. Start with the basics and build up based on priority.
From Carrie — I was thinking of only concentrating on the 3 Rs in the beginning.
