059: 3 Tips to Create More Time in Your Day // Lauren Golden of The Free Mama Movement

3 Tips to Create More Time in Your Day __ Lauren Golen

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!

**And don’t forget to Leave a Review on the show this week! It’s my goal to reach 800 by the end of the week. Thank you so much for your endless support!**
