In this episode I share with you my tips and tricks for “getting it all in” with scheduling and routine.
My house is insanely busy, just like most of your homes. These 5 tips are the cornerstones of how our home functions on a day to day basis. If it wasn’t for these tips our health and family lives would completely fall apart.
**Notes on this episode: I actually recorded this back at the beginning of August. Shortly after recording this episode, I changed jobs. The job change was very significant and required many hours of training and physical work in a short period of time. I literally could not make time to type out the show notes and post the episode. (Must do vs. need to do). These tips saved my sanity and kept our home (mostly) functioning during this time. At the end of the episode I discuss what to do in case of an emergency. Let me tell you, changing jobs, constituted an emergency. Many things were put on hold and that is OKAY!
