How do you do it all? Twitter, FB, blogging, forums, commenting, linkys, giveaways, etc.
I find myself getting overwhelmed... especially lately. I find it hard to "shut down" at the end of the day because there is so much more that I want/need to do and learn.
How do you keep up with everything and still take care of the daily stuff around the home?
The Not So Functional Housewife
I also have a hard time turning off at the end of the day. I just have so many ideas and I feel like there's always more to be done. My goal is to shut down the computer by 5 pm on my days off (when my husband gets home) but often that doesn't happen.
I wrote a couple of articles about being more productive/efficient, maybe those will help:
Thanks for the reply, ladies. I'm sorry I haven't commented sooner... I've been super busy.
You both have great advice. I really need to make myself stop at a certain time and just be happy with that. As well as, happy with what I do or don't get done that day.
Thanks for sharing your articles. I'm off to read them.
WOW, I thought I was the only one who had these problems. I am so glad to know it's not just me. It is very hard to shut it down at a certain time, especially when you have so many things running through your mind. I feel like I never have enough time to catch up on housework and make everyone happy, all at the same time. I am going to read the articles now, hopefully I will find a little help. Good luck to everyone!
thanks for this question. I too, cannot keep up with what I want and what I need to do.
It helps that I only have one child, I live in a condominium so there is no yard to take care of and I don't worry about my daughter getting out, I wash the dishes just once a day then it has to wait. I make sure I vacuum just once a week, laundry is just once a week. I kind of have a list in my head when things should be done. My apartment is messy most of the time. I have toy bins to make it easier to just pick up and toss to their bins. I stay up at night sometimes to do my blogging duties. I monetized my blog at the start of the year and it has not been very easy.
You have to set limits time/energy wise on these things. I use to be on and connected ALL the time but that's not good. I couldn't really function in all area because I was so tired and over whelmed. After I started setting limits on what was important and really needed my attention then I became better.
Setup up a task list and write down how much time you want to spend on certain things (Twitter, FB, blogging, forums, commenting, linkys, giveaways, etc.)
Hope that advice helps
I keep a notebook by my bed to jot down any ideas to deal with the next day.
I also keep a list of tasks that I have to do each day.
Since I run so many blogs, each blog gets a scheduled day on which I write on it.
I think it helps that I have three kids and only one computer. Lol.
Thank you for all the replies to let me know that I'm not alone in this. It does make me feel a bit better. And thank you to those that listed suggestions to help us out. :)
