4 Ways To Ditch Mom Guilt
Motherhood has taught me so much! 😅 It’s also reminded me that even though my baby’s needs are important, so are my own and so are yours!
There are many times you’ll find yourself stuck in the inevitable mom guilt. 😩 Here are 4 ways to help you ditch Mom guilt. ⬇️
👉🏻 Identity your sources of guilt:
Many situations cause moms to feel guilty, including having limited time because you’re a working mom, running a business or needing to care for other children, family, pets, etc. Sometimes sadly mom guilt comes from friends or family who don’t understand what it’s like to be a mom and say things that can be hurtful or unnecessary. Identify who and what is causing you stress and reduce or eliminate your exposure. The sooner you identify where the guilt is coming from, the less mom guilt you’ll feel!☺️
👉🏻 Create a schedule:
Make a schedule to maintain balance for you and your little ones. There is always something that needs to be done, I know! It never ends and neither does the laundry! What helps me is jotting down 3 things I MUST get done before the end of day and then setting time on my calendar to do it when the baby is sleeping, or when his dad or family can watch the baby. 📓
👉🏻 Prioritize your Priorities:
A challenge that most of my mama clients struggle with is often feeling as if they have to choose between work and spending quality time with their children. I promise if you take a good look at your daily habits, there are a few things you can go without doing to give you back time and much needed energy! 💯
👉🏻 Ask for help:
They say it takes a village to raise a child, so don’t feel guilty if you can’t cope alone - you’re not supposed to! There’s no shame in seeking help from a trusted friend or family member and if you don’t have those nearby, then budget so you can hire occasional support. It makes all the difference to get a little time back to do what you need to do to take care of yourself, and enjoy a warm cup of coffee for once! ☕️
Motherhood 🤰🏻changes every facet of our lives, but it doesn’t erase the beautiful complexity of who we are as mamas.
Our babies are worth it! And don’t forget so are we! 🥰
