3 Ways to Plan Ahead When Life Gets Busy

3 Ways to Plan Ahead When Life Gets Busy

I can't believe number 4 is due next month. I've been trying to get ahead with work, the house, etc. so we are ready when he gets here. When life gets busy and you feel like there aren't enough hours in the day, here are 3 things to try to manage the stress and plan ahead. 

1. Time Block. One of the best ways in become more efficient is to time block. Set aside certain times of your day to work on just one project or one task at a time. Everybody thinks that multitasking is a better use of time, but studies actually show that you get more done by time-blocking and giving 100% of your time and focus to a single task.

2. Write it out. If you are a visual person, write out your to-do lists, your goals, or whatever you have on your plate. It will help you envision it and narrow down your priorities. It's a good jumping off point to actually start tackling everything.

3. Short-cut where it counts. Usually short-cuts will catch up with you, but you have to think smarter not harder. There are so many cool services available out there that can make your life run smoother. Start by having someone else cross something off your to-do list, like grocery shopping. Grocery Pickup at Walmart is a really convenient way to get all the groceries you need for the house. If you guys haven't tried it, it's really easy. Just order groceries through the Walmart Grocery mobile app, select your pickup or delivery time, and submit your order. Pickup is just as easy - you get a notification when it's ready and just follow the orange signs to a designated spot and an associate will deliver everything straight to your car and review your order with you. There's also a freshness guarantee so if you aren't 100% satisfied, you can get your money back but all the shoppers are highly trained and choose fresh, quality produce. It's a great option if you are short on time or have an event coming up, too - you can do same day pickup in as soon as 4 hours. Right now Walmart is offering you guys a promo code to get $10 off your first order of $50 or more. Just visit walmart.com/grocery or download the grocery app to order and redeem with code: M2A3DZ3F (*Only valid for first-time customer and expires 1/31/2020.) Have you guys tried Grocery Pickup at Walmart yet? Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks for stopping by.
