See that photo right there? Yup, that about sums up everything I’ve been putting in my body lately. Cookies, coffee and vitamins. What more could you want?
Only joking people. I mean come on now, where’s the hot chocolate to balance out those cookies? 😉
Between my full time job, holiday party after holiday party, the blog, running a business, planning a wedding and Rosie being sick as a dog. Wait is that phrase still acceptable when the reference is to a dog? Well you know what I mean.
Anyways, I guess you could say things have been a little busy around here and with the holidays right around the corner I’m taking time to enjoy the holiday season while knocking out my to-do list. Sharing all my tips on juggling a busy schedule and staying healthy with Centrum® MultiGummies® below.
5 Tips for Juggling Everything During the Holidays
Put your health first.
No matter how busy your schedule is, be sure to put your health first. Nothing puts you more behind during the holidays than a nasty flu and doctor’s order to stay in bed. When things get crazy busy for me and I know I don’t have time to hit the gym as much, I turn to my food (minus sweets, those don’t count;)) and vitamins to keep me healthy. I wake up around 6:30am to catch up on blog and business e-mails and get a big hearty breakfast in before heading to the office. Then after work, I get my quick and easy vitamin fix with Centrum® MultiGummies®. I had been on the hunt for a good multi vitamin for awhile and when I saw Centrum ® MultiGummies are gluten-free and have no artificial flavors or sweeteners and have B-vitamins to help support daily energy needs* at Walmart, I grabbed a bottle and have since been hooked. Centrum® MultiGummies® makes it easy for me to support my health while enjoying my busy lifestyle.
Make your to-do list.
I know, I know. Another to-do list but I swear they work and this is a fun one! Take a few minutes to sit down and write out everything out that you need to do for the month. Get as detailed as possible. If you know you volunteered to bring cookies to the office party, add that in there with a date. If you have a big work project or blog post coming up that needs to be completed, write that down. Also write down a few holiday things you’ve been looking forward to. Maybe it’s seeing the christmas lights or going ice skating, write down everything you want and need to do this month and then organize it according to priority and date so you know tentatively when you need to have things completed by.
Schedule everything out.
Now that you have a list of your month’s activities including a few fun holiday ones, write them in your planner or a printed out calendar. I personally do both. I print a calendar where I write out all my events (work, blog and personal) then I fill in my projects that have due dates such as a blog post, orders to fill for Bon Aprontit, or work project. Lastly I fill in meetings and coffee/drink dates and then my holiday activities where I have openings. I then put all my to-dos such as: make cookies, get groceries, send e-mail to client, submit project, get shipping labels, etc. in my planner. Yes, I plan out every second of my life…down to the minute and no this is not required but I do find it helps me make the most of my day.
Prep in advance.
Easier said than done, right? Not if you schedule it though;) I always make sure to schedule one night a week to get ahead. One night where I have no plans except a few minor ones that I can do from home so I can prep for all the busy days ahead. I make sure to run all my errands, get caught up on my e-mails, edit photos, package orders and any other little thing I can do to save time on a night when I may not get home until 10pm.
