Imagine you are going home very tired after a long day at work. Dishes are stack up and laundry are pile up high. Toys are scattered and the room is a mess. However, no matter how tiring a day was, mothers keep their best to be organized and fulfill mother duties. They tend to care for family first rather than doing their personal activities.
To help mom continue to fulfill her mother duties, here are the best practices mom can do to lighten them up:
Never compare yourself from having a hectic schedule, need to work overtime to for the family, and stressful day over your friends who are having a good time and stress-free. Remember that nobody’s life is perfect and the world is different.
Have a break
Life as a mom is busy and sometimes crazy. Allow yourself to step away from stress and breathe even for a while. You deserve to sit outside, sleep early, or do shopping.
Giving yourself a treat don’t need to be expensive. Grabbing your favorite treats from the groceries or buying your preferred foods, clothes, or shoes would be the best way to treat yourself.
Have a bedtime bonding
Go in bed with your kids and snuggle with them to have a quality time together. Time flies so fast and you can’t stop your kids from growing. Snuggle, talk, kisses, tickles, and hear them laugh would be one of the warming moments you can always remember as a mom.
Make daily goals
Making daily goals don’t need to be accomplished in one day. Doing two to three goals can make you feel accomplished. A little way such as letting your hair done, picking up kids at school, doing the laundry and have time with kids would be good to get included with your daily goals.
Have an exercise
You may have a lot of busy time working and doing mother duties, try to squeeze in a workout or do jogging. Go for a walk or enroll yourself to Zumba or other fitness activities would help you to chill out and stay away from stress for a little while.
Create communication with kids
A simple way of asking them how was their day went would help you to stay connected with your child. Through this, it allows your children to have an open communication with you and teach them to express their feelings.
