If you’re a WAHM, then you know what it means to put everyone else first. We all do it! Your clients, your children, your housework and even hubby’s errands, but what about you? In order to make all of those things work successfully we need to think about ourselves too. You might think I mean a coffee break from time to time, but really I want to focus on body and mind.
Here are a few tips to achieve this:
- Exercise: Schedule out 30-60 minutes a day to get your workout in, just like a doctor appointment. It doesn’t need to be rigorous, just enough to get your blood pumping. I love yoga; it heals my body and mind and is a great way to start the day. Or try a quick 1 min. plank or some squats at your desk after 30 min slots of productivity.
- Snacking: No matter how hard you try to resist, you just can’t. Prep some healthy snacks or lunch ahead of time so you have a Go To instead of searching for your next fix. Select in season organic fruits and veggies, crackers, nuts etc.
- Fresh Air: It may not always feel like an option with your busy schedule, but some fresh air in the lungs and sun on your face is always refreshing. Even if it’s to watch the kids kick a ball around, enjoy a glass of lemonade and take a few moments away from the computer screen. We all need a break!
- Kick Start: Getting up early doesn’t sound great to most, but it can really help you have some quiet time and plan your day before the crazy starts. Or, if you don’t manage getting out of bed early, try planning your day the night before or use an online project management system to keep you in check.
Do you feel more balanced now?
All of these tips are to help the WAHM increase productivity, help feel balanced and hopefully a little more healthy and grounded. If you find your online business needs a little more stress relief, try hiring a Virtual Assistant for as little as 30-45 minutes each day.
