There's more to life than work (even when we have a job we love) and that's why it's important to avoid stress and make time to embrace fun and adventure and make magical memories. Because Happy Mum = Happy Kids
Work can give us so much; a sense of purpose, an outlet for creativity, huge satisfaction and an income to support our needs and desires. However in order to maintain our 'Work Life Balance' we need to ensure we have boundaries in place.
Being a Mum can be challenging without doubt, but it can also be the most rewarding and heart warming adventure of all. By keeping stress, guilt and overwhelm in check, we can enjoy motherhood whole heartedly.
If you're NOT being the Mum you thought you would be (let's face it, I wanted to be a combo of Mary Poppins and Maria from The Sound of Music but was actually more like Cruella Devil!)
Or if you're feeling like a hamster on a wheel...frantically rushing but never even catching up..then you're in the right place.
Whatever challenge you are facing as a mum, I have either been there myself or coached a mum who has been through it.
Below are some of the most common things I hear from the mums I work with and they can all be transformed, to allow you to achieve the balance you desire.
Feeling overwhelmed with WAY too much to do, is just how mums roll these days, but it doesn't have to be. We really CAN 'have it all' but it won't just fall into our lap. AND we definitely won't get it from rushing around trying to do more and more. The solution is counter intuitive but we need to do less, to have more.
Mummy Guilt is rife and unfortunately it's all too easy to think that it's just part of being a mum. It doesn't have to be and it shouldn't. I know from my own experience of guilt, that there are so many reasons why feeling guilty is BAD for us and that is why I am committed to helping other mums get 'guilt-free'.
As a mum we can find it hard to prioritise our own self-care, as we're programmed to put everyone's needs ahead of our own. We may know that 'you can't pour from an empty cup' but it can be hard to put it into practice and spend time and energy on ourselves, but when we do, everyone benefits.
When we first become a mum it can completely take over our life, we become known as 'somebody's mum' and our identity and dreams can be put on the back burner - but they are never completely extinguished. Often our desire to be more, do more and have more can push through and make us feel restless, even resentful. The answer is to follow your dreams and show our children by our own example, that anything is possible.
