Motherhood Struggles and Proper Management
As a mother, you only want what’s best for your children and your family. In the motherhood stage, you tend to forget everything about yourself because your life is focused on your family especially your children. Your day will start about your children and ends with the same. 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. Of course, these are your duties as a mother but don’t get me wrong but you also have duties for yourself. This is absolutely right. Even if you are a mother, you should still think about yourself. Have you ever checked yourself in the mirror lately? When did you last go to a spa to pamper yourself? And have you even gone to the doctor for checkup? These important things in your life are neglected because you dwelt too much on being a mother. You can’t ignore these things because these are your support system. What if your body gave up one day and your doctor advice you to bed rest for months? Who will take care of your kids? Therefore, make things happen to balance your life.
So what are the right ways to manage your life? Time management is very important. 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. Therefore, you can set an hour exercise every day. Jogging or other simple steps of exercise are helpful. This way, your body remains healthy physically. In fact, it boosts your energy for the day. Starting your day with an exercise actually boosts your body’s system and you become more alert and proactive. But don’t forget to pair it with healthy foods. You need to balance your health by eating healthy food, also. Do this daily and you will see that you become happier and healthier.
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. You will surely enjoy it. This is not even a tiring activity for you. Another option is to bring your children to the spa if you want some self pampering since spas also offer services for children. Lastly, don’t forget to see yourself in the mirror and offer your biggest and genuine smile because you deserve it.
