The New 24-Hour Gig: Keeping Moms in Check

By: Megan Mason 

There was a time, seemingly long ago, where home was a place of refuge. However, in the days of COVID-19, our abodes have become Ground Zero for everything else in our lives.

However, #QuarantineLife has taught me that the same strategy solving skill set is necessary in our home lives. Here’s three quick tips to keep things in check:

All hail the Chief Executive of EVERYTHING! We often wear many hats but, in our current time, execution is contingent upon prior planning. So pull out that planner you promised to use this year and get to work!

More than ever, our homes are our sanctuary. As the fearless leader, it is imperative that each activity taking place in our intimate spaces has its own designated area.

Boundaries, The Dirty Word
