I find sometimes with 5 kids at home things can seem very overwhelming. I recently purchased an egg timer. I set it for 10 minutes and do things in 10 minute increments. I seem to get more done instead of trying to finish everything all at once. It doesn't seem as overwhelming when you break it down.

Avoid this morning time-stealer. Do not start your day reviewing e-mail. Chances are you will get off-schedule and find yourself responding to other people's needs instead of yours.

Plan your day first and then allow a set amount of time to browse e-mails quickly. Set a timer and pay attention to it. Quit when it rings. If time allows, give another quick look later in the day. Learn to delete, especially ads from strangers.

N.E.T. (Not Enough Time) syndrome is the acronym I have given to those occasions when I feel like there simply isn't enough time in each day for me to do the things I either need to do or think I need to do. Do you have days like that? If so, here's my description and suggested cure for N.E.T. syndrome.



Assuming too much responsibility at home, work, and socially.



Acquire and practice the skill of saying "No" in order to prevent daily overload. Establish and remain committed to priorities, making time for yourself a top priority and sticking with that plan. Accept the fact that due to circumstances beyond your control, sometimes things just do not go as planned. Some things have to be pushed to another time or possibly even remain undone.

For each child, hang a labeled mesh basket in ladder style to organize papers, permission slips etc.

When I'm just not up to doing a particular multi-part task, I can usually get it done by breaking it down. I can pull the laundry out of the dryer and set the basket in the laundry room and grab a handful, just a handful, every time I pass that way.
