Intel® Core™ i5 processor & Win a $250 Gift Card to Best Buy

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Intel.

Our lives have been extremely busy lately. I keep thinking there will be a break, but then something new comes up.  For the past three months, we have been remodeling our house and living in a construction zone. I tried to prepare myself, but there are always surprises when you remodel. It has been a long road. I have also been busy with my job as a wellness consultant, travel, friends and family, and of course the blog.

Luckily, I am a very organized person and the queen of multi-tasking so I have been able to stay on top of most things. I’ll be honest though, it has been hard to keep up with everything while remodeling our house. Normally, I never let the laundry fall behind, I plan out our meals a week in advance, never get behind on emails, etc. But lately, I have let a few things slide, even though my multi-tasking mode has been in overdrive.

Our house is almost completed and it is time for me to re-focus. The holiday season is here and it is time for me to get organized again. I am ready to tackle my to-do lists and conquer my daily tasks with full enthusiasm. I want to stay ahead of the game so I can enjoy the holidays.

I was recently selected by BlogHer and Intel to review the Intel® Core™ i5 processor with Turbo Boost Technology, allowing me to “Get More Done in less time”  and an Intel® Wireless Display (aka WiDi) adaptor. I am hoping my new computer will help me get my life in order-just in time for the holidays! I will be sharing my thoughts on Monday-so stay tuned!

    I am the Post-It girl during the holidays. I make lists and post them throughout the house to remember what I need to get done, buy, or clean before the Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    I try to be intentional about any downtime that I have with a one year old and a two year old running around. Love your blog! :)

    Get enough sleep & stay healthy…..otherwise I get sick and then NOTHING gets done. Learn to cut loose what you can do without and to say NO…’s not so hard once you start & you don’t end up over-committed and stressed!

    My iPhone keeps me organized. I use it for notes, calendar features, etc. And I also rely on good old-fashioned post-its and a mini-notebook I keep in my purse.

    I write lists and just try to do a few things each day. And I start early…especially with Christmas shopping.

    I stay organized by going over my endless lists each morning to recenter and make sure I am doing everything I should be doing. This Christmas will be a bit more hectic as we have been doing some remodeling as well and still have several of the projects ongoing. But my lists will come through for me.
