5 Easy "Stay-Sane" Tips For The Millennial Mommy

1. Wake up before everyone else does.
We have a full house since my guys and I live with family for now. So I prefer to wake up at 6 to get things done (laundry, exercise, homework, shower, etc.). Waking up early gives you a head start and also gives you that much needed opportunity to have a moment alone, before the chaos ensues.
2. Embrace the to-do list.
I’ve always made lists, I got that from my mom and I’m glad I did. Having a to-do list keeps you focused and organized. Checking things off here & there leaves you with a feeling of accomplishment and a little triumph too.
3. Spread the responsibility.
Ladies, I know we can do a lot. Like text message, cook and burp a baby all at once. We’re awesome. But sometimes we need help, give your significant other a task or two to do. If there’s no partner in the picture, then ask a family member or a best friend. After all, what are best friends for?
4. Pack the bag the night before.
Even if you have no plans of leaving the house the next day, keep your little one’s bag ready and prepared at all times. Pack it up the night before and sit it by the front door. It saves time while rushing to get out of the house the next day. Just grab it and go.
5. Maximize nap time.
If your child is still taking naps, then take advantage of that. I’ve said this before. Use some of the nap time to answer some emails, make some calls, finish an assignment or anything. Then, use the rest of the time to watch your favorite show or close your eyes for a sec.
