⏰ THE TIMER TRICK ⏰
Works great for kids and adults alike…
On Instagram recently, I shared Jacqueline (@big.family.mom - check her out!)’s reel, suggesting (in a good way!) to be productive during nap/quiet time, instead of zoning out for yourself and then blaming others (kids!) that “I just can’t get anything done”.
Resting is great, but limit yourself so you don’t feel the frustration later - a timer is an awesome tool for this - I use it all.the.time!
Here are a few ways to use a timer when managing your home and family that will increase productivity (great for moms and older kids) and limit frustrations (great for moms and younger kids struggling with transitions):
⏰ Take a break
⏰ Limit screen time or other activity
⏰ Make a quick decision / avoid analysis paralysis
⏰ Challenge yourself to finish a task
⏰ Countdown to a new activity / transition
⏰ Establish a new routine or habit
