If you’re a mom, you know that it can be difficult to find time for yourself.
You have so many things on your plate – kids, household chores, work…the list goes on and on.
It’s hard enough just getting everything done in one day! How do you possibly fit anything else into all of this? The answer is simple: create a routine that works for you.
This will help keep your sanity intact as well as give some structure to the chaos known as motherhood (and life).
Make time for you
The most important thing that you can do for yourself is make time for yourself. This may seem impossible when your schedule is packed, but it’s essential if you want to maintain your sanity.
There are a few ways that you can make time for yourself:
-Take a bath or read a book
-Get out for a walk or run
-Write in your journal
-Paint, draw, or sculpt
-Watch a movie or TV show
Trying to fit all of these things into your day can be difficult, but it’s worth it! If you can’t find the time during the day, try getting up an hour earlier or staying up an hour later.
This may not be ideal, but it’s better than not taking time for yourself at all.
Create a routine
A routine can be extremely helpful in maintaining balance as a mom. It will help keep you organized and on track, which is essential when your days are packed full of activities.
There are many different ways to create a routine, so find one that works best for you. Some moms prefer to have a daily routine, while others like to switch things up every few days. It’s important to find what works for you and stick with it!
Some tips for creating a routine:
-Plan out your week ahead of time
-Include both work and personal tasks in your weekly plan
-Set specific times for each task
-Make sure you allow for some flexibility in your schedule
Creating a routine can be difficult, but it’s worth it! Once you get into the habit, it will be much easier to maintain balance as a mom.
Don’t try to do it all
It’s important to remember that you cannot do everything on your own. As a mom, you often feel like you have to take care of everything and be superwoman. This is simply not possible!
Accept that there are some things that you cannot control and let go of the guilt. Ask for help from your partner, friends, or family members when needed.
This doesn’t mean that you’re weak or unable to handle things on your own, it just means that you’re smart enough to know when you need help.
Remember, it’s okay to not be able to do everything!
Start small and take baby steps!
Trying to change your entire life overnight is not realistic and is likely to lead to failure.
Instead, start small and add new things gradually. This will make it easier for you to adjust and will help maintain balance as a mom.
Take care of yourself first! – You can’t help others unless you’re healthy!
It’s important to take care of yourself first, otherwise, you won’t have the energy or ability to help others.
Be flexible! –
Life doesn’t always go according to plan and that’s okay.
Don’t be so rigid in your ways that you’re unable to change when things don’t work out as expected.
Keep an open mind about new ideas and approaches; this will allow for more balance as a mom!
Eliminate clutter from your home –
The chaos of motherhood can get overwhelming at times, but there is hope if we eliminate some of our stuff!
There are many simple ways to declutter including: buying fewer clothes (or none at all), donating unused toys and items around the house, and selling unused items.
By decluttering your home, you’ll be able to eliminate some of the chaos and create more balance in your life!
Maintaining balance as a mom can be difficult, but it’s definitely possible.
If you follow these tips, you will be well on your way to creating a routine that works for you and your family.
Don’t try to do it all on your own – accept help from others when needed. Remember that it’s okay to not be able to do everything! Take some time for yourself and enjoy the chaos known as motherhood. 🙂
