As a mother of three young children and the owner of a successful business, Lauren Golden knows busyness and stress well; but she refuses to live in a constant state of overwhelm. Instead, she takes control of her life by taking control of her TIME.
In this week’s episode, Lauren teaches us three of her best strategies for creating more time as we juggle motherhood and all of the other worthy aspects of our life:
1) Saying “no” sometimes (and “no” doesn’t mean “never”)
2) Using the acronym D.R.O.P it as a way to reduce what’s on our list
3) Prioritizing her to-do list using “The Daily Five”
We hope this episode helps you during this busy holiday season!
