~ If you know you are going to have to work late into the evening, don't be afraid to take a power nap for 30-45 minutes. You'll be surprised how energized you'll feel after a quick nap.
~ Make a grocery list in advance and designate one day to go grocery shopping. When you get home, take a few extra minutes to wash/clean meats, greens, fruits, etc. and store in plastic bags in the fridge or freezer. On the day you go shopping, especially if it's on a work day, pick up something nutritious but quick so you don't have to cook that same day.
~ Plan your meals for the week and cook enough food to last 2-3 days.
~ If time allows, do some "prep work" the day before (iron clothes for yourself and the kids, select clothing and set aside for the next day, pack lunches, etc.).
~ Commit to setting aside a few minutes each day for yourself. Find a quiet place to meditate, read a book, listen to relaxing music, take a long bath or do whatever brings you joy.
~ Don't try to be a superhero and save the world! Reserve your energy for things that are important to you. It's okay to gently and lovingly say "no" to the kids, friends, spouses and even bosses every now and then.
