Full-time mothers do wonderful work, but sometimes they end up forgetting themselves.Concerns, lack of rest and attention to many things at once can affect their mental health. We are going to discover five healthy habits for full-time mothers so that they can solve all these problems.
Before studying each habit and thinking about it,we must be aware that we will sometimes have trouble putting them in place.Many unforeseen events can arise and prevent what we had planned well in advance. So you always have to be flexible. If the habits we are going to describe can not be put into practice or require special adaptation, that does not matter. You just have to learn to take care of yourself.
1. Set aside time
Full-time mothers need time for themselves, to take care of them and to be attentive to their needs. The problem is precisely that the majority of these women are busy.A good option is to get up very early in the morning.In this way, everyone will be sleeping and they will enjoy a few minutes for them.
They can take advantage of this moment to pamper themselves or to organize their day in their agenda.They can also play sports, read a book, take a relaxing bath or have a leisurely lunch. The important thing is to enjoy something they love and can not do at other times of the day.
Full-time mothers are there for others, but they also need to spend time with themselves.Share
2. Bring quality time to their children
Full-time mothers spend the majority of the day with their children.But the fact that they are physically with them does not imply that they offer them quality time. What does that mean? That if they do not play with their children or talk to them just to scold them or tell them what to do, they do not participate in their development.
Playing with children, listening to them, stopping doing things and sitting down to talk to them, to laugh, to make mistakes with them is essentialand will be as beneficial to mothers as to the youngest ones. Thanks to this, their bond will be strengthened and the mothers will be able to find the little girl they once were. So childish, so innocent and for which everything seemed like a novelty.
3. Enjoy (without children!)
Children are the most important people for a mother but, as we mention the importance of having time for them,it is also important that mothers can enjoy moments without their children.For example, finding their friends or going to dinner with their spouse.
Having children and being a full-time mother does not mean doing everything with them.Thinking in this way can go back to destroying friendships and also the relationship. As adults, we must have time for our family but also for our relationships. It is therefore essential to organize. The ideal is to establish a balance.
4. Do not want to do everything
Full-time mothers feel responsible for many things.They believe that they have to take care of everything and leave no space for others to help them. They have a great sense of responsibility that they have a hard time escaping.
One of the reasons that full-time mothers try to do a lot of things, thus avoiding having free time for themselves, is because they feel guilty.Society defines very clearly how a mother should be, how she must act, and this pressure is constantly present. Still, there is no such thing as a perfect mother, and thinking about yourself to enjoy a moment without children or caring for yourself does not mean being selfish. Being aware of this point will allow all these mothers to feel much better and to benefit from greater emotional well-being.
4. Continue to learn
Full-time mothers consider that they have time for nothing. In fact,they dedicate themselves exclusively to their children, putting aside their aspirations and their personal goals.However, even in this case, it is possible to find a balance.
Thanks to the multitude of possibilities provided by the Internet,it is possible to continue learning, for example through online courses or even working from home.
Full-time mothers need to have goals and goals beyond the family domain. In this way, they will feel more motivated, happy and fulfilled.Share
To be a mother and to devote oneself completely to one's children is an extremely satisfying job. However, one should never put aside other areas of life that need to be maintained. Remember thatthe children grow up and they leave the family nest much faster than we think.What will happen at this moment? We will probably feel a void. It is therefore important to find time, even if it is only a few minutes, to call this friend, spend time with her partner or watch this video on an acquaintance or topic that we would like to develop or deepen.
And you,are you a full time mother? Do you include in your routine some of the habits mentioned?
