A 10-Point Plan for Tips (Without Being Overwhelmed)
Motherhood Struggles and Proper Management
Being a mother means prioritizing your kids and family. In the motherhood stage, you tend to forget everything about yourself because your life is focused on your family especially your children. You wake up every day to live life thinking about your children and how to take care of them. You immediately prepare their food, school related activities, send them to school, fetch them from school, feed them, care for them, sing them a song for them to sleep, cuddle with them, and the routine goes on every single day. You should never complain because these are actually your duties as a mother but don’t forget that as an individual, you also have obligation for yourself. Yes, that is right. Being a mother is not an excuse for you to ignore yourself. When did the last time you checked yourself in front of the mirror? When did you last go to a spa to pamper yourself? And when did you last visit your doctor for your annual health checkup? These are all ignored now because you dwelt too much on motherhood. But you need to remember that these things are essential to you. What if your body gave up one day and your doctor advice you to bed rest for months? Who will take care of your children? That is why life balance is essential.
So what are the right ways to manage your life? Time management is very essential. It may be a little difficult at first but as you go over it, you will appreciate how helpful it is. You can begin this by having a body clock. Waking up at 5 in the morning is actually healthy. This will help you give time for an exercise routine. You may want to take a jog. This way, your body remains healthy physically. In fact, it boosts your energy for the day. You become more active and alert after the exercise. Also, you need to complement it with healthy foods. Therefore, healthy food is a must to your body. If you do this on a daily basis, expect a happier and healthier life.
A healthy body is not enough because you still need to make sure that you pamper yourself but not to the expense of your children’s time. The kids love to go to new places and explore so might as well travel with them since travelling is also a stress reliever activity for you. This is all about fun. You will never think of it as a tiring activity. Another option is to bring your children to the spa if you want some self pampering since spas also offer services for children. Lastly, always look at yourself in the mirror and smile because you deserve it.
