I use timers very often throughout my day. I use them the most when I am transitioning my son to another activity. It really does help! Believe it or not, I also use timers for myself! If there is a task that I dread doing, I may never feel like doing it. When I have a few minutes it is difficult to just will myself into motivation. So I came up with the plan to set a timer for 10 minutes. I can handle doing the most mundane boring task for 10 short minutes. If I am not finished, then I can choose to set the timer for additional minutes or leave it undone for another time. It is so simple!
What do you use to help your day run smooth?
