If you’re pulled in all different directions on the daily, this month’s mantra is for you, mama.
The tasks and to-dos that come with being a full-time working mom can be overwhelming. We usually feel like we’re behind or that we’re forgetting something like picture day or pajama day at school.
If you can relate to this, here are 3 tips that can help when you feel scattered and overwhelmed.
Be realistic about your workload (both the visible and mental workload). The practice below can help.
Stop comparing yourself to other people. We’re all in our own unique situations, so it’s not fair that our default is to compare ourselves with others. Spend more time focusing on your own path rather than getting caught up in someone else’s.
Remember there is only of one of you. You will never be replicated, so take care of your mind, body and spirit. The tips and tools on this website can help you get started.
