How to Make Best Choices Out of Your Busy Schedules for Your Family

Thanks to our friends at Hyundai, mis chiquitos and I gave the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport our family test drive during one of our busiest weeks in December. The drive was fun but choosing which holiday events to attend may not always be so easy. How do you prioritize your busy schedule during your busiest times of the year?

Hyundai Santa Fe Sport  Most notably, we drove our Hyundai Santa Fe Sport to watch the biggest movie of the year – STAR WARS! We had been waiting for over a year to see this movie. (Well, I’ve been waiting since 1980-something but who’s counting?) This had been on our schedule – highlighted and starred. Other than Christmas morning, it was our holiday highlight.

And still, we also had our Christmas party in the park, shopping with grandma, holiday concerts to attend and volunteer events to lend our time. Phew! It was a busy week but who doesn’t have a super packed schedule in December?

During this time, we can begin to feel extremely overwhelmed. How do we choose which events to say yes to? We can’t be everywhere. So, during busy weeks I have to make the best choices for my family, my career, myself and MY SOUL.

Queridos, believe me, I’m the last person to write about planning your schedule. With or without a planner, you must always choose what to say yes to and what to decline. How do you do that? We have to make these choices regularly because busy weeks don’t just happen in December.

I only have one tip for you. Know your goals. In all the areas of your life that are important to you, you should have clear goals. When you know what those are, choosing where to spend your time is easier. For December, I had two main goals: quality family time and volunteer. Each month, I try to re-evaluate what my goals are and then book my events according to what they are. In January, I’m back to my blog hustle. That leaves less time for other things but because I knew my goals for December and spent my time accordingly, I’m okay with that.

Hyundai Santa Fe Sport - Que Means What

Thanks Hyundai for making our fun holiday events even better! Since we had great weather, we cruised around town with the panoramic sunroof open and it literally brightened our days. This sporty family car is a great fit for a busy family.
