Schedule of the day
Schedule of the day makes all the duties are arranged in rhythm. One can execute them efficiently and easily, and daily repeatability gives a sense of stability.
A sample of daily schedule:
6.00-6.30. – Wake-up. Getting ready for the day;
6.30-7.00. – Morning shopping: fresh bread, ham;
7.00-7.30. – Preparing breakfast for the family and second breakfast to school;
7.30-8.30. – Driving/walking children to kindergarten/school;
8.30-9.00 – Breakfast for myself
9.00-10.00 – More shopping – products for lunch (vegetables, fruit, household chemicals, school supplies);
10.00-13.00 – Free time;
13.00-15.00 – Preparing lunch;
15.00-16.00 – Pick-up children after school;
16.00-17.00 – Lunch, cleaning up after dinner (living room, kitchen);
17.00-19.00 – Help with homework, extracurricular activities or time to play with children;
19.00-20.30 – Supper;
20.30-21.30 – Time spent with the children;
21.30-22.00 – Preparing to sleep (evening toilet, pajamas, evening activities);
22.00 – Children go to bed. The Homemaker has a time to fall asleep in front of the TV.
This schedule is just an example of arranging average day in the rhythm of executing the tasks.
One need to keep in mind the huge self-discipline that everything worked smoothly .
For a few months at the beginning of this work it is difficult to sort things out, but after six months this rhythm becomes a habit, and life becomes easier.
Additionally, this a schedule for weekdays. On weekends and holidays, I suggest to take meal times as a reference point and can carry out day in accordance to tchem.
The most important element though, no matter what the duties are is to maintain stability of the day. One should be reasonably flexible , because there are always new things to deal. In this case, it is worth stick to meal times.
The essence of the schedule should be constant repetition of activities for children. After a while they will begin insisting to repeat the routine.
