Mums rock. There – I said it. Yes, I may be biased because I am one, but I am also surrounded by some amazing mothers who inspire me every day.
You probably know the ones that I mean – the ones who have it together. Those who are organised. Those who have planned out the healthy meals for the week. Those that are scheduling play dates while running between meetings. I admire them all as they constantly juggle everything in their lives (not taking away from the important role that dads play as well…but I’m here to talk about mums).
As a working mum of a very spirited four year old, I recently had to pause and look at how I was organising my time to ensure that I was being as productive as possible to look out for him, look out for me and for our family.
So I pulled out the tool that I rely on most in my life – my smartphone. My smartphone is my connection to the world. On it is everything that I need to ensure that I am being as productive as I can be, as well as taking time out for ‘me time’.
Technology is helping me connect to the things that I love but also the things that I need to be productive and mindful. But it’s also important to put the tools down to be in the moment. That’s what I’ll be doing this Mother’s Day – to enjoy, reflect and get lots of cuddles from that spirited little four year old.
Here are some of the apps that help through the week.
