Feel like you’re always in danger of missing some important event or action item for your kids? That you’re barely hanging on in terms of family calendar organization? I’m sharing the one thing I do every night with my family that helps our household run smoothly and gets rid of the anxiety that I’m missing something.
(02:37) The issue – Managing family life schedules can be A LOT. Especially with multiple kids. I personally have five people in my family and we aren’t always able to manage it perfect. Here, I share my most recent family dilemma.
(05:30) How did we miss this and how can we do better? We must look at this situation as a whole and see what we can do to manage this better in the future. The way I move forward is with the “family huddle”.
(07:00) Our process for the family huddle.
(10:00) The first components of the family huddle – how we get organized for the next day, every day.
(11:52) The second component of the family huddle – how we manage reminders.
(13:50) The third component of the family huddle – taking note of plans immediately so we don’t depend on our memories.
(15:11) The most important aspect of the family huddle that helps me sleep better. It is done! I know exactly what I need to do tomorrow, and everyone is going to be ready to go.
I hope this has helped you all, friends. This method has tremendously changed the level of chaos and anxiety in my family. With three kids, the responsibilities seem endless sometimes. In our house, having a “family huddle” every night is a necessity. When we fall off this habit, we forget things. It really is as simple as that. Well, that is all for this week. Thank you for being here and until next week, it was good to see you.
