Are you ready to go into your week feeling less frazzled and more in control? 

You need this checklist to help you set up your week, save time running around and plan out time for you! 

About Brittney:

I’m a wife, a mom of five, and the proud owner of zero cats.

At a difficult time in my parenting life, where I wanted to be “anywhere but here” with regard to my children, I embarked upon a daily Time In routine. It would be supremely succinct of me to say that this practice – of interrupting myself to spend five minutes a day with my young children – saved my disintegrating relationships with them. Yet this statement, while entirely true, doesn’t reflect truth entirely because it lacks the crucial details demonstrating just how this change came about.

When I walk into my home, I feel comfortable and at peace. I know what needs to be done and if I need something? I know right where to find it. I have so much more time to spend with my two girls and husband, since it only takes a few minutes to pick up the house throughout the day.

Where to start when creating a routine that works for you in your home. Here’s some suggestions, but make it work for you …

Try to start with your morning routine.
1. get up early … even just 5 minutes (key … you don’t need to be a morning person!)
2. focus on you by starting with devotions or meditations
3. personal development
4. your top 3 priorities or one tasks
5. get mom dressed ( so you feel good!)
6. empty your dishwasher and put on a load of laundry

Or if morning routines are overwhelming start with your evening routine.
1. Prep your meals for tomorrow
2. Do the dishes (especially if it causes you anxiety the next day!)
3. Doing the trach, floors …
4. Do a 15 minutes cleanup … ask your family to help!
5. Reflect on your day … what was good
6. Plan your next day
7. Finish your day in prayer
