How to find more time for busy mums – Competition

A few days ago we had a guest post by inspiring life coach Tracey Wall from Empowering Mums. I was lucky enough to be sent one of her e-books to read on a subject very close to my heart!   Here’s my review of ‘How to find more time for busy mums’ and keep you eyes peeled for a chance to win a copy yourself!

Busy mums

Review

I think this e-book is wondeful…it has it all. It is clearly set out so you can do one chunk of it at a time and it has lovely visuals to support the clear concise text. Always a winner when you don’t have hours to read.

Tracey immediately cuts beneath the superficial and tells you not just what to do  but why and how (always a help)  As she says’ you don’t have time not to do this ‘if you want to become

                     someone who gets it all done with little effort and manages to enjoy their own                    qaulity time

Oh I so want that to be me!

Tracey  tells you how to set achieveable goals and work towards them. She talks about breaking them down in bite size tasks and putting them in your diary. She is all about dreams to reality. Whilst this sounded great I just kept thinking but wheres the extra time going to come from?  Well she tackles this too and addresses the value of time, prioritisng time and doing away with the non essential time wasters (twitter addiction any one!) 

I don’t want to give away all the gems of support and ideas that is this fabulous 54 page ebook and all the templates for lists and audits inlvovded I want you to enter the competition and win one for yourself! so I’m not going to say much more except that I truly think these are very workable ideas. So far today I have online shopped, cleared the fridge ready, painted with my kids, written this post, listened to my husband play guitar, tidied the bedrooms and scheduled my week and its only 10.30. My diary is full for the week of me time plus essentials and a few goal driven activities. I feel serene organised and in charge. (unusual for me!)

Time management, ways to increase rest time and decluttering ideas are all included. What a fab e-book and what an excllent us of my time reading it! Thanks Tracey.

    Looks like a fab resource! And if it can help/empower me to be more organized and focused I will be very grateful! 🙂

    Hmm. Such a great question! I often wonder what I did with all my free time before I had my child. Anyway, I think I’d drink a (still hot) coffee, knit, read, write – all the things that I love to do but find them hard to accomplish with a toddler around me.

    Nothing, absolutely, gloriously amazing nothing. That would be the ultimate luxury. To have nothing to do but lay in the sun and doze for a couple of hours with no nagging sense that there is something or someone that needs attending to.

    First I would dither around as am not ussed to child free time! Think I would start with a nice relaxing bath and then indulge in some sewing in peace.

    There’s so many things on my wish list but top priority would be going for a swim followed by a much needed haircut and perhaps a quick trip to a coffee shop! Bliss 🙂 Sadly all my spare time is taken with washing, changing and feeding my little one.

    I would file away important documents that have been collecting dust since my 16 month old was born. Sort out all the clutter that I removed from the spare bedroom which is now cluttering up my bedroom since putting my 2nd daughter in it.

    List all the items that are no longer needed for babies on selling sites.

    Find all the missing peices of the toys that children have thrown under chairs and behind cupboards.

    Then if I have any time left I would do some brain training as I keep forgetting things after having 2 children in the space of 2 years.

    What a question. At the moment it would be go for a swim (doesn’t open early enough to go before boys get up!), then start the mammouth tidy and clean that’s needed at our house. I’d plan to finish with a lovely coffee and cake – well, I’ll need a treat won’t I?!
    Hope to learn how to do this if I win!

    Sorry for the delay in posting here, I have just returned from a fab holiday spending some great quality time with my daughter Meggie!

    Thanks to all of you for entering, as there are six of you who have entered with some fab ideas for your ‘me time’ morning, I couldn’t possibly leave one of you out – so great news you should by now have all received your ‘How to find more time’ eBooks.

    I hope you enjoy your read, learn lots in the process and more importantly make that quality time for yourselves, even if it is just 10 mins for a coffee break with your feet up!

    Remember if mum is happy, everyone is happy!
