Resolution #1: Say No
Busy moms have an “I can do it” attitude. That’s one of their secrets to being able to do it all. This year, embrace the “I can’t.” When faced with piling more on your plate (like volunteering to be the troop leader, soccer couch and PTA coordinator all in the same season) take the opportunity to say “not now” or “no thank you” when asked. Of course, pull your weight whenever you can, but if you’re typically the one who is called on to make the magic happen, give someone else an opportunity to shine.
