Time Blocking for Productivity PLUS Free Planner

A few weeks ago, I felt guilty—mom guilt is so real—for not spending enough time with my son now that I am back at work.

I decided to use a time-tracking app to document where my time was being spent for a few weeks.

  • I was happy that most of my time outside of work was dedicated to family time.
  • I was unhappy that I never got any personal time (AKA showering #amiright?).

I figured if I could plan out my days a little better, I might be able to find some more time for myself and self-care as well.

I made this Time Blocking Template PDF for myself to find more time for myself in my busy schedule.

Now, I time-block every single day (yes, even on weekends!)…

TL;DR: Time Blocking

Time blocking is a fancy word for mapping out your daily schedule with specific start and stop times for all your daily tasks.

This planner is perfect for any busy person who needs a detailed time-management system to organize their lives (and possibly find extra time for that special project you’ve been working on).

Time Blocking for Moms and Teachers

Most daily planners are not created with moms in mind. They start at 8 am and end at 5 pm. A mommy’s workday is NEVER only 10 hours!

Don’t even get me started on half-page planners. How can I write the 60 things I must do daily on teenie pages?!

  • My planner goes from 5 AM to 10 PM.
  • My planner runs in 15-minute increments.
  • My planner is a full 8.5″ x 11″ page.

My planner also includes:

  • Daily meal planning
  • Daily water tracking
  • Daily meeting and appointment reminders
  • Daily to-do list
  • Daily notes (for miscellaneous information)

My FREE Time Blocking Template PDF Features:

  • A full-color weekly Monday-Start
  • A black-and-white weekly Monday-Start
  • A full-color weekly Sunday-Start
  • A black-and-white weekly Sunday-Start
  • A full-color daily time-blocking planner
  • A black-and-white daily time-blocking planner
  • It starts at 5 am (where are my mom’s of littles?!)
  • 15-minute increments (life is too busy to live in 30-minute chunks)
  • It ends at 10 pm (maximize those evenings after bedtime, mommies!)
