From LVN Women's Initiative Network (WIN)
Master class “Make yourself in-distractable”
Make time on Sunday evenings or Monday mornings to go through the calendar
Communicate with your boss and coworkers, get allies who understand the working parents’ schedule challenges
Time Boxing – Schedule focus time first thing in the morning
Implement ‘Focus Friday’ with your team – schedule no meetings
Tie financial incentives to chores for your children; teach kids to be more independent (make their own lunches, take out trash, empty dishwasher, etc.)
If allowed, work nine (9) hour days and take every other Friday off
Hold a family meeting twice a month; run the family like a business and get the kids participation (Google spreadsheet)
Practice what you preach with your team
Stop multitasking and be present
Set appropriate boundaries
Use time-saving services – like Instacart!
We hope you find these tips and tricks useful to you. All LVN members are welcome to join upcoming WIN events.
