I love planning my week in advance.
I love knowing what my tasks for the week/day will be. That gives me a sense of focus.
I love the feeling knowing that my day will be well-spent completing what I need to do.
Ticking off items from my to-do list gives me great pleasure.
And the best part of all, things will ALWAYS go as planned - at least 98% of the time.
Right until my promotion to MUM status.
I mean, I love being a mum.
I love it to bits.
Really, I do.
But mummy planning is not a skill that comes easy.
It takes practise and a whole lot of adjustments.
It's challenging because motherhood is full of surprises.
Times when you expect your plan to work, it will completely go the opposite direction.
Truth be told, that was one of the main things that put a lot of stress on me as a new mum.
For months after giving birth to Fayrah, I was a complete wITCH with a capital B.
So I sat myself down and tried to find the root cause to my unhappiness.
That was when I realised that I had to plan and think like a MUM.
How do you do THAT?
Let me share with you the minor changes I did that had major (positive) effect on myself AND the people around me - especially my little newborn.
