We all get the same amount of time in a day, so use your time wisely.

Get up before everybody else does and get some important stuff done while it’s still dark.

This will set you up for a great day.

Make a to-do list and stay productive, but make sure you take short breaks to re-energize too. Avoid scrolling on Facebook and doing things like this that waste time, as you don’t get it back and that could have been time spent laughing with your kids!

  2. Hello Orion, I think these are really great points. Always find downtime and always find time for your kids. These are really vital . Working at home has both its pros and cons. It is so convenient indeed. And it is always beckoning because it is at home. So knowing when we need to stop is so important. And then keeping to it.
    Especially knowing that dinner time is truly sacred family time.
