1. Practice Saying “No”
Most mommy’s won’t accept that they often try to say “no” to things but can’t manage it most of the time. It’s a sad fact. Mommy’s often feel that they need to do everything. Well, you don’t. You just need to prioritize matters and let go of things you can’t do.
It’s okay if you say no to the chore of washing the clothes of your partner because you have to cook for the kids. It’s also okay if you can’t take your kids to the park every once in a while. Switch it with some other home based activites with them and they’ll be delighted.
2. Seek Help from Your Kids
If you are graying your hair by thinking of how to spend time with your kids, how about delegating some tasks to them too? Yes, you need to do that. You need to ensure that your kids help you with little chores like keeping the bathrooms clean, cooking easy recipes, etc.
It will not only let you all get done with the tasks, it will also make the kids more responsible.
3. Let It Go
If you are a mom, you need to accept that sometimes it’s good to let go of things. Your home can’t be perfect at all times and you can’t do it all by yourself. So, if you go to sleep when there are a few dishes remaining in the dishwasher or some clothes are unwashed even after a weekend, don’t beat yourself up for that.
4. Make a Schedule
Yes, we know that creating a schedule when you have kids seems like a dream but it is possible. You need to take the initiative and set a schedule for everything. From meal times to play times, everything needs to be set so that you can streamline your life.
This will also teach the value of time to your kids and they will be more successful in life if they value time.
5. Take Care of Yourself
Mommy’s who get too involved in taking care of the kids often forget to take care of themselves. You should not make this mistake. Just stop and think when was the last time you had a relaxing bath or read a new paperback? Can’t remember, can you?
If this is the case then you need to make sure you take at least half an hour for yourself every day. If you don’t do that, you may lose your energy and health.
Avoid that by taking just half an hour for yourself daily from today and see the miracles it does for your health, happiness and well-being.
