Trying to keep a busy schedule running? My Erin Condren Life Planner is the BEST tool I have (that and nights with my girlfriends to decompress)! I'm doing a fun Erin Condren Giveaway and sharing tips for managing a nutty schedule!
Real talk, my schedule is nuts. In fact, one of the questions I get asked the most often…..”How do you teach full time AND run your blog?” The honest answer to that? Not perfectly and with a lot of help. I hate that facade that social media puts up around women and busy lives. We can't do it all. Busy doesn't mean happier or more successful (in fact, it usually means more stressful).
The last two years have been especially challenging for us schedule-wise and to be transparent…….I'm VERY ready for some down time this summer. I teach full time, and run our blog. My husband is a full time professional musician here in LA and has been in a full time graduate program. So that means our lives are pretty much a house of cards. We don't have any days off together. Most evenings one of us is working.
I've found that the more organized I am, the less stress I feel. And two of my biggest tools? My Erin Condren Life Planner and my Erin Condren Teacher Lesson Planner for school. Something about the act of sitting down and writing out my schedule really helps me feel more relaxed. I also use my Life Planner to be sure that I'm not OVERCOMMITTING. If I have a busy week, I try to schedule less the week before or after.
Last week, I got to take some of my favorite busy women out to dinner. These ladies are just as busy as I am, and manage their lives with grace. We sat down with the team from Erin Condren and talked schedules, planning, and holding it all together. Each lady left with their own BRAND NEW Erin Condren Life Planner and energy to take on their schedule for the next few months!
You may not have had the chance to attend our dinner……but I snagged a gift for you too! I'm teaming up with Erin Condren to give TWO lucky winners their own new Erin Condren Life Planner…..so enter away!
