The great little ideas for busy working moms!
Firstly, if you are a busy mom (whether working or not) – congratulations! You are a hero. Although, it might often not seem like it, you have a super-power, and you are doing an outstanding job! In your child’s eyes, you are surely, the strongest and most capable human in the entire universe. This article aims at presenting some great little ideas for juggling your life when you are dividing your time between work and motherhood.
If your employer provides the opportunity to work flexible hours for some time, I highly recommend doing it. Working full time and trying to spend as much time with your little ones as possible may soon shows signs of fatigue and burnout. At the end of a day, finding time for yourself to rest and relax is not a luxury. It is an absolute must for your wellbeing.
Organizing is key to success.
Preparing and planning things in advance can save you lots of stress. Knowing ahead what you are going to wear or cook on each day is a great way to start organizing things around your house. Perhaps, you might want to get a calendar that everyone can have access to and see activities that are about to take place in the coming weeks. For some great organizational hacks click here
Involve your other half and your children in the housework. Let us be honest, if you want a clean house it has to be cleaned regularly. Having lots of duties at work and at home, cleaning might be the last thing that crosses your mind. However, a clean house is better for your general wellbeing. On the other hand, mess and chaos can cause anxiety and stress. Remember, you are not alone in maintaining your house’s tidiness. Involve your family as much as possible. Ask your kids to clean their rooms frequently. Motivate them ad encourage their good behaviours. Discuss with your partner which tasks he can take on. Perhaps, he enjoys cleaning the windows or mopping the floors. Spread the work equally. So that nobody feels overwhelmed. For great tips on easy cleaning visit our page
Remember about self-care!
Do not put yourself at the bottom of your priority list. At the end of a day, your children need you happy and relaxed for them. Finding some regular time for yourself and exercising your hobby is very important for your mental wellbeing. If there is something you particularly enjoy, do not put it aside just because you are busier now than ever before! Be open to your other half, your family and friends, and ask for childcare when needed.
Get involved with like-minded people. Go on apps like https://www.peanut-app.io/ to meet some new friends with kids. Having someone to talk to and share similar experiences is very valuable.
The last thing to mention is to abandon the ‘mom guilt’. Some women are being shamed for working full time as the stereotype is still alive that women should be stay at home moms. Being judged or looked upon is still common. However, today’s society sees more and more moms working, not only because of their choice, but due to financial situation they are in. Feeling guilty about it is not a way of living. Balancing work and motherhood should be praised and admired!
Be thankful for all the good things and moments in your life. At the of a day, life is journey and you are doing the best you can for yourself and your family.
