The new year is a chance to hit the restart button. Take some tips from Life as MOM contributor Prerna  on how to infuse your life in 2014 with calm, peace, and intention.
January, the month when the year’s fresh, a clean slate and we’re thinking about resolutions, goals and more to make this year better than the earlier ones.
As a mom who’s managing home and business, things tend to get really rushed really fast in my life. Is it the same for you?
So, while I am all for drawing up lists and writing down my goals, I also like to think of a word to guide me through the year and help me say “yes” and “no” to demands on my time, wallet, and energy.
That word this year is “Nourish” and here are some ways you and I can both nourish our home and life and infusing peace, calm and intention into it in 2014:
A clean home is a salve to the soul and while mine doesn’t always look spotless, it helps soothe my frayed nerves to know that if there is a spill or a mess to mop up, I wouldn’t have to hunt for a microfiber cloth. Here’s how to put together a go-to cleaning kit  for the home and the soul.
If you want to be more spontaneous with your entertaining in 2014, organizing the home for unexpected company  can help!
Summer. Yes, the time when things go from busy to busier for most moms. If you’re working from home, like yours truly, now is a good time to set up the systems you’ll need to keep working in the summer  if you have to!
Yes, another busy time in the life of a mom. Back-to-school season can be calmer and more fun with some nifty time management. Here are back-to-school time management tips  that can help breathe relief into your packed schedule.
Infusing calm and peace into your family can happen only when they know what you do and why you do it. Your work is no different. I realized this and shared how I made work-from-home work for the family  so that things were easier, more supportive and encouraging for all of us.
Again, doing things together as a family is a lot more fun and makes getting every one on board much easier. Getting organized as a family  is a great way to infuse calm and peace into your life. Think no more manic Monday mornings! Yes!
While I’m all for organizing for a calmer life, I know that organizing can get expensive. More expenses generally equate to more stress in my book. So, here’s how to organize just about anything…for free !
In an age where we’re constantly rushing from one appointment to another play date, it can get easy to lose touch with being peaceful. Peaceful doesn’t mean slow. Peaceful can be productive .
What would you do if you had an extra hour? Yes, it can be done. Here’s how to save yourself an hour  and just be, read, play, listen, talk, nap, exercise. All those things that you say you want to do but can’t because you don’t have the time.
