Are You Juggling This Too? — Trapper Sherwood

Are You Juggling This Too?

Juggling

Between work, after school activities with the kids, being a wife/husband, or single parent let’s face it…it’s tough to juggle life!

And because we are trying to do it all, life and what we are trying to do can get cloudy, or as my dad use to say: “the waters of life can get pretty muddy.”

So today I have four quick tips to help you get control of the many stressors that can impact us every day.

By using these tips hopefully your stress level and any clutter issues you have will disappear.

1) Prioritize to put it simply; what are your priorities at home and at work? Set up short term and long term list. Lists are an awesome way to make sure you are meeting your goals. You can break your lists down to daily, weekly, monthly etc. Look at them on a regular basis to ensure you are on track.

2) Get organized as you know I admitted that I struggle with clutter, but here’s what I am now doing. When I check the mail, it’s now a “touch it once” technique. If it’s a bill to be paid, or its trash, it goes in the appropriate file. I am also taking a minimum of 15 minutes a day picking a room, and de-cluttering it by putting things in its place.

3) Manage Information Overload Are you a multi-tasker too? Do you find you are trying to speak to your children, talk or text on the cell phone, plus answer emails all while cooking dinner?  Stop it!  As a very good friend of mine says; “phones have voicemail for a reason; use it!” Set some specific time aside to go through your emails. Turn off ALL the electronic devices and spend quality time with the family.

4) Have some ME time. When was the last time you took some time for just yourself? Do you ever take an hour a day or a week to catch up with your friends, read a book or listen to some music? Sometimes while we are driving to & from work the quietness and solitude in our car can be exactly what we need to recharge our batteries.

So, with the help of these tips you can now start making small adjustments to help you overcome some of life’s little stressors that happen from time to time.
