You can also use this time to build in boundaries and mini rewards.

When it comes to planning meals, make sure to double down on dishes like soups and casseroles that can be made in bulk and used throughout the week. This will help save time while providing you with nutritious meals. Keep a grocery list of all of the ingredients you’ll need to maximize your time in the kitchen.

Planning your chores is a great way to save time and money. Make a rotating list of weekly tasks to keep your home in good condition. Keep a running list of miscellaneous items as well, such as cleaning supplies and tools. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, take a few minutes to make a list of all the things you’d like to get done, and then choose a few that you can tackle in a day. Planning chores for the week also makes sure to share tasks across the family and sets expectations for everyone. No more mom up late washing dishes after everyone else has gone to bed.

It’s also important to plan your habits, such as exercising, meditating, and reading. Setting aside time for these activities is essential to staying mentally and physically healthy. Make a list of activities that you want to make part of your routine and allocate time for each.

Finally, plan your space. Declutter the areas that you use most often, such as the kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. Spend some extra time organizing closets, drawers, and cupboards. Not only will this make everyday tasks easier, but it will also create an environment that feels more organized and uplifting.

Hack Your Goals to Manage Stress

Once you have created your plans, it is time to set goals. Clear goals help direct your focus and energy. It may be helpful to break down big projects into smaller manageable tasks. This will give you a sense of accomplishment when you complete them and prevent the stress of having to do everything at once.

Managing stress is an important part of the planning process. Make sure to leave yourself enough time to rest and relax. Schedule breaks into your day to unwind and re-energize. When you’re feeling overwhelmed, take a few deep breaths and remind yourself that it’s ok to take a step back.

Finally, stay positive. Don’t beat yourself up if things don’t go as planned. Remember that even small successes are worth celebrating. Acknowledge your progress and the effort you put into reaching your goals.

Putting Plans Into Action

Once you have your plans, goals, and stress-management strategies in place, the biggest hack is to take action based on your plan! Put your plans into action by breaking them down into simple steps. Start with the biggest and most important tasks first. Don’t forget to set deadlines for yourself and stick to them.

Make sure to review your plans and goals weekly to ensure that they are relevant. Tweak and adjust your plans and goals as needed.

Lastly, remember to be kind to yourself. Achieving goals takes time, effort and consistency. Don’t be too hard on yourself if things don’t go as planned. Take a break when needed and reward yourself for small successes.

With the Home Hacks Handbook, you can take control of all the areas of your life!
