Reduce your stress & workload by adding some fun!

Have you ever felt like you were drowning in To Do's? Or like you're the only one doing all the work around the house? Or like you're living the same day over and over again?

Motherhood is awesome - but sometimes it can be busy, overwhelming & monotonous all in one go.

Most mums who email me say they'd love to get on top of everything, but they feel like it's a lost cause because they're doing all the work themselves - the same errands, work and cleaning day in, day out with little help from their loved ones.

In a perfect world, we'd all work, rest & play in equal amounts.. and the workload would be evenly shared among everyone in the family. 

But I know life can get in the way of that.

So I think the trick to getting things done and finding more balance is about not what you do each day, but how you do it.

When was the last time you added FUN to your To Do List??

Chores don't have to be boring all the time - add a fun little twist to get the kids involved and cut down your workload

Have less fights at dinnertime with fun food faces

Race the kids to see who can put ALL their groceries away first

So go ahead - add a bit of fun and reduce your stress and workload. These are just a few ideas - I bet you can come up with more that will work for your family!

If you have some ideas already, share them in the comments so we can all give them a go :)
