3 ways to use time wisely for the busy Pinay mom


Motherhood is a rewarding journey filled with love, laughter, and cherished moments. Yet, it’s no secret that being a mom can be incredibly demanding. As Mother’s Day approaches, CIMB Bank Philippines celebrates the hard work and tireless dedication of Filipino moms by sharing some time-saving tips that can help them in their day-to-day lives:


Delegate and ask for help

Running a household takes plenty of time and effort. According to the Mayo Clinic, it may be difficult to admit you need help or can’t accomplish things on your own, but a little help goes a long way. Round up the family to divide the tasks at home. This can help you free up a few extra moments to focus on yourself and recharge. 


Make time for self-care

Amid the hustle of daily life, having time for self-care can get challenging. Juggling family responsibilities along with having a full-time job or running a business or a passion project can get overwhelming. However, experts from the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health encourage parents to still prioritize self-care to improve their physical and mental health. Start small and consider scheduling some “me time" to do an activity you enjoy – read a good book, have lunch with a friend, or maybe schedule a fitness class. Keep this block of time sacred and regularly follow through.


Harness the power of technology

Technology has made many tasks more convenient. Even the most tedious tasks, like going to the bank to manage the family’s finances, are now simpler and faster. Financial institutions like CIMB Bank PH, the most awarded digital-only commercial bank in the country, have made banking more convenient and inclusive by making it easy to open an account and transact. Before, long waits at brick-and-mortar branches and filling out numerous paper forms was the usual practice at banks, and opening an account through a mobile phone wasn’t the norm.


Today, opening a savings account is easy and takes only 10 minutes via the CIMB mobile app, which is perfect for parents who lead busy lives. Having a CIMB Bank PH account also allows you to access your savings anytime, anywhere. In case you‘ll need to transfer funds, money transfers from your CIMB account to other banks are free of charge and can even be scheduled ahead on the app, letting you focus on other, more important things. 


You can also pay your bills via the CIMB mobile app under ‘Pay Bills,’ so you won’t have to worry about missing any payments, giving you one less thing to think about. In case you need assistance, you also have 24/7 access to the CIMB app’s Help Center, which allows you to lodge any concern you may have with your CIMB account – no need to even step out of your home.
