Life get's crazy sometimes. For me having a baby really flipped my life upside down and shook it around! 6 weeks Postpartum and I'm realizing a few things. I have wasted ALOT of time in the past! When you have a baby that naps for like 2 hrs at a time you learn to power through things and really be choosy with what I do with my time! So I'll share some tips and tricks ive learned the last month.
Hire a dang house cleaner...
Yes I know you may be saying "glad you live the bougie lifestyle, but i can't afford one." Well I'm telling you that you can... For less than $100.00 dollars every other week you can have someone come in and clean you house. John got me a house cleaner for my birthday this year and its seriously changed my life! Instead of spending that 3-4 hours deep cleaning my home, Im working, calling clients, doing online work, editing galleries or im out shooting, and now with a full time job of taking care of Emma I don't have time for it all. So you could say I've brought the 1st person onto the KayleeLynn Creatives team, and I'm outsourcing for the first time. Yes she might not be doing website work, gallery work, or helping with client management but she is keeping my work and home space clean & organized so that I can concentrate on my daughter, my clients, and all the work that needs to be done! So in that 3-4 hours I'm working, I'm bringing income in that is paying for the cleaning lady and also making profit on top of that! Also even if I'm not working that day it gives me that 4 hours to soak up time with Emma, take care of her needs and MINE!
Scheduling out Instagram posts.
Holy Heck has this made my life easier! I feel like by scheduling my instagram posts out for two weeks it saves me time, stress, and creative blocks. No longer to i go 4 days without posting, dread posting, and then hate that the panic post made my feed look real dumpy! So PLAN PLAN PLAN. I use Planoly and I'll attach a quick link for you below!
Lastly give yourself ALL THE GRACE!
Im terrible at this still but im only 5 weeks in so you know hopefully I get this down! Even if you don't have a baby, life happens and we just have to roll with it! So give yourself some grace, drink an iced coffee and put on some real pants... Yes I said it: real pants, no one that has achieved greatness sat around in baggy sweats all day! Ok that is all for today, Im gonna go get my long to do list done while little miss is down for a nap!
