5 Working Mum Hacks to Help You Get Sh*t Done

Hey Super Mums! I know that juggling work and family life can sometimes feel like you're trying to tame a tornado with a teaspoon, so I've compiled some simple but somewhat game-changing hacks to help you navigate the chaos with style and grace. So, grab your cape (or your favourite power blazer) and let's dive in!

1. Master the Art of the Power Lunch

Who says lunch breaks are just for, well, lunch? Use this precious hour to supercharge your productivity. Instead of scrolling through social media or catching up on emails, why not squeeze in a quick workout? Whether it's a brisk walk around the block or a mini yoga session in your office, a little movement can do wonders for your energy levels and mental clarity.

2. Embrace the Magic of Meal Prep

I'm not one for prepping food on the weekends, I wish I was, but who has the time?! I do, however, ensure I know what the week will look like in terms of dinner and snacks. Prepping even your list and your ingredients will save you time and effort each day that can be directed each there and will also mitigate mum guilt (and self guilt) for any unhealthy dinners on the fly!

3. Outsource Like a Boss

Repeat after me: you don't have to do it all. Whether it's hiring a cleaning service, enlisting the help of a virtual assistant, or asking your partner and kids to chip in with household chores, outsourcing can be a game-changer for busy mums. Remember, asking for help isn't a sign of weakness – it's a savvy strategy for reclaiming your time and sanity.

4. Make Technology Your Sidekick

From meal planning apps to calendar reminders, technology can be a working mom's best friend. Take advantage of tools like Slack for seamless communication with your team, Trello for project management, and meditation apps for moments of Zen amidst the chaos. With the right tech arsenal at your fingertips, you'll feel like you have your very own personal assistant – minus the coffee runs.

5. Wake up 30 Minutes Earlier.

Last but certainly not least, don't forget to prioritise self-care. You might cringe at the idea of this, but try it for a week! Set your alarm 30 minutes earlier than your children's wake up and spend it doing something for you. Do some exercise, have a cup of tea and read a book, an extra long shower, or eat breakfast slowly savouring the sunrise, whatever it is, that's starting the day with a big thumbs up. 30 minutes each day is a week and a half of YOU time each year without even trying that hard.

So there you have it, fellow mum warriors – five hacks to help you conquer the corporate jungle with grace and gusto. Until next time, stay fierce and fabulous!
