Brilliant Mom Life Hacks During Quarantine

With the lockdown still in place for many of us mamas, we have come up with 12 tips anyone can follow. With these hacks, you can get it all done and stay sane doing it.

And, even if you don’t have kids, we can all learn a thing or two from the mamas who are the other superheroes of quarantine — getting it done all day every day!


Have a Self-Care Power Hour First Thing in the AM

Seriously, wake up a little earlier than everyone else in the house and have a full glorious hour to yourself. Take this time to drink your coffee in peace while listening to your favorite podcast, get a 20-minute FitOn workout in, and blend up a nutritious smoothie.

Starting your day with a heavy dose of self-care will make a huge difference in how you handle any stressors that may come your way once your day really gets going.


Make Batch Cooking Your BFF

Batch cooking is one of our fav sanity-saving tips because not only does it cut back on cook time, but it can help you stay on track with healthy eating.

Try batch cooking by doubling or tripling your recipes to freeze and reheat and mix and match ingredients that you have on hand to make various meals.

Doing this as part of your weekly meal prep will help you keep healthy foods stocked in your fridge and freezer at all times and will mean less time in the kitchen during the super busy week.


Make Use of Your Instant Pot or Slow Cooker

And speaking of making dinner time easier, take the hard work out of prepping dinner and let your Instant Pot or slow cooker do the work for you. Pick recipes that can easily be made in the slow cooker or an Instant Pot. It will require less cooking and cleanup time as well. Win!


Multi-task Like The Queen That You Are

Us mamas were made for multi-tasking, so use your superpowers and multi-task like the queen that you are to make quarantine life a little easier.

Do some deep breathing while taking your morning shower to get your Zen on, grab your headphones and catch up on phone calls while folding laundry, and get ten squats or 15 lunges in during that evening reality TV show binge.


Get Dressed… Yes Seriously!

For reals — even if you just feel like lounging around in your PJs all day, getting dressed (even if it’s just in a workout outfit) can make a big difference in how you feel. You may feel more motivated to get the things done that need to be done, and if you have your sweat dreads on, you’ll be ready to tackle a quick workout whenever you have a spare 15 minutes on your hands.


Grocery Shop Online

This is one of those sanity-saving tips that’s a total lifesaver, especially during this time of quarantine.

We’re talking grocery delivery. If you are new to grocery shopping online, now’s the time to take advantage of it! Many grocery chains like Whole Foods, Amazon Fresh, and Target offer grocery delivery straight to your doorstep. All you have to do is select your items, and a shopper will shop and drive your groceries to you.

Yep, it’s that easy, and you’ll wonder why you haven’t treated yourself to this little gem of a mom hack sooner!
