If you could use some tips for moms or busy women, you’re in the right place. I’m a busy mom myself, and I have plenty of tips to share!

These 6 self growth and time saving tips for moms & women who are busy will help you have great habits & feel like a success; able to put out less effort, have more time and energy, and have days that flow easily. They are:

  • Make it a habit to wake up early
  • Get organized & have a place for things
  • Have the whole family help with the house
  • Make family time a habit & a priority
  • Value your time, organizing & prioritizing things
  • Take care of you so you can take care of others

Now, let’s look more at this advice for moms & busy women!

Waking up tips for moms & busy women

One of these tips is to make waking up early a habit.

Successful moms and other women often get enough sleep, and they get up and moving early. And, this can make life easier & help in a few different ways:

  1. They’re refreshed and clear minded when they wake up and are ready to tackle the day.
  2. They get some much needed quiet time first thing in the morning to gather their thoughts about the day and to plan.
  3. These moms also get some much needed “me time” before the children or others wake up, whether for meditation or something else that refreshes and keeps them centered.
  4. They have time to prepare things so that things flow more smoothly, are organized, and are less rushed. Once the kids are up, mom’s looking like a super mom with herself and everything else prepared and ready to go!

Imagine how that feels, to have control over your day from the start of it.

You’re then setting a tone for the day, and it’s a good one!

This is one of my favorites of these tips for women.

Time saving tips involving getting organized

This one is a time saving tip and it involves getting organized – and this is important!

Women and moms who have a designated place for things feel more successful in their daily lives.

In fact, being organized is one habit that will make things so much easier and less stressful for you and your family. And, trust me when I say it really does make a difference!

If you have to spend much time looking for shoes or backpacks it will take away from your most precious asset… your time. Time is something you can’t get back and every little bit adds up. I’m sure you would rather spend those minutes talking with and enjoying your children!

The other part of this is that being organized will keep you and your family from having a chaotic home and make it easier for everyone to know how to help.

Make sure to involve all members of your family in the tidying process. If your child forgot to put his or her backpack by the door, have him/her help you put it there.

It takes everyone to keep up with a home.

Busy women & moms should get family help

The third of these tips for women who are busy is to remember that it takes a household to run a home.

Getting the family involved in tidying the home helps them learn, feel organized and in control, and feel more independent. They’ll know where their things are, too, and won’t have to ask you. The same goes for your spouse, rather than just doing it for him.

So, you can get others to help so that you don’t end up feeling like everything is all on you. In this way it becomes a habit for everyone, and everything flows smoothly!

I used to be a Headstart teacher, and one thing I learned is that if I was organized and made it easy for the children and others to do their part it was a lot easier to keep things in order. It was also easy to see the teacher’s struggling who had a disorganized classroom and it would seem chaotic.

My aunt once told me that line that it takes a household to run a home and so everyone should do their part. I truly see the value in that now.

So, maybe you can think of what ways you can give little responsibilities to your family members. It will only help them in the future, so don’t feel bad!

Make family time a habit

Next, I want to talk about how to make life easier with family time as a habit.

For one, successful moms make communication with their kids a priority and therefore set specific times for this and for family time.

For example, many successful women will make sure that their family eats at the table together most days of the week. It doesn’t matter how you do it, just that you find a way to do it.

You and your children will later remember this family time that you spent together – even if it’s usually just a simple thing, you’ll still be making good memories! Just be present with them.

When you know you’re making an effort to fit in communicating time with your kids, you feel like you’re doing a better job.

And, if you feel like you’re doing better you’ll have more mom confidence!

Having confidence makes all the difference in most things in life, and as a mom it’s no different. With confidence, we second guess ourselves less and feel better about ourselves as moms.

This tip is simple and worth remembering!

Tips for moms & others on valuing time

The next on this list of tips is to value your time.

Part of creating good habits as a mom is to value your time, and moms who feel successful value their time.

They know how important it is to make the most of their time, so they don’t say yes to everything.

This is one of the best successful habits tips, because we have so much to do already! And this time valuing habit can be hard at first, but it’s important.

With only so much time, a successful mom must prioritize what is most important and what can be let go – whether that’s saying yes to less or cleaning less.

Some moms choose to clean what’s most important and let the little things go.

Their homes are clean and organized, maybe just not perfect. And, that’s okay!

You just decide what feels right for you and your family.

More tips for valuing your time

Here are some more ways to better handle your time as a mom.

Some moms say they value their time by working it out on a calendar, like Google Calendar. They organize the slots of time throughout their days, knowing what they’ll be doing most of the time.

I personally found a lot more time by doing this & now love Google Calendar! Now, when something comes up I can look at my calendar that has all the different activities for our days and decide if and when it really fits in.

The days go smoother and I can see on one page what is working and what is not.

So, I highly recommend organizing your time in some way while keeping in mind what will be the most important things for you and your family.

If it seems time consuming or rigid to you, I get it – but, I now see that it’s way more time consuming to not track and organize your days and activities.

I’ve also not learned of one truly successful person who doesn’t do this in some way, although they may be out there.

To be successful as a mom or in any way, you need to know how you’re spending your time and decide the best way to use it.

Self care tips for moms

Now, let’s talk a little about self care tips for busy moms & other women. Why not make life easier and better with good self care habits, and take care of yourself to take better care of others?

That old saying that states if you don’t take care of yourself you won’t be able to take care of others is wise.

Truthfully, you might be able to take care of others but not as good as if you took good care of yourself first.

So you need to practice self care.

The problem is it can feel unnatural for a mom to do anything for herself first. We feel guilt if we do. But, what we might want to do is reverse this.

If we’re going to feel guilt, it may be better to feel it for not taking good care of ourselves first.

After all our kids deserve the best of us! And, they get the best of us when they see us smiling and relaxed.

So think of what it will take to make you smile and feel relaxed.

Now go do it, and don’t feel guilty.

A refreshed mama is a better mama!
