Hi @BDivya Yes, I live in the US and am working outside the home. I used to work in India too just after my marriage and had my first child there. But I had a few advantages: I had a stay-at-home caretaker for my baby; I also did not have commute problem - we lived walking distance to the university where I worked. Most of my posts are geared towards the working woman only as I am a working woman. Our mind is our strongest organ. We can always know the difference between a job that is done mindfully and mindlessly. So, as you start being aware of everything you will identify time wasters, time stealers and will take corrective measure. Also you will train your mind to immediately identify how long something will take, if it is worth pursuing, alternatives, etc. I think you two major controllers now are your office and your toddler. The majority of your wakeful hours go towards your job and taking care of your toddler. Start with your job. Office - Note down for a week or so how you get ready for work, how long it takes, your commute time, is the commute too strenuous that you are tired when you reach work? At work are you sitting down continuously? how often do you take breaks, what do you do when you take breaks? Is your lunch healthy - a protein, vegetables, grains, fruit, and yogurt? When returning home are there chores that you can do en-route, etc. Identify the time stealers, time wasters, things that you should have done earlier, time gaps that you can do small things etc. For example - Mine is a sit down job - so every hour I get up and go to the water fountain to get a bottle of water. sometimes I have to be at the desk and cannot leave. Those time I stand up, walk in place do some stretches. I use small time gaps to accomplish some exercise. Use this as a starting point and in no time you will know how to work around challenge areas.
