Affirmations for Mom Life When Life Gets Overwhelming
Recently, my life has been stuffed full of poopy diapers, tantrums, time-outs, nursery rhymes, the same 3 books over and over, and trying to get the babes to nap at the same time…
I barely have time to breathe, let alone to sleep. I get plenty of help from my husband, but he has a demanding job, and as a stay at home mom, I’m the primary caregiver and the keeper of everything home related.
Mom life is beyond amazing at times, but other times can be frustrating, exhausting, disappointing.
Moms today are overwhelmed and stressed out
According to Psychology Today, mothers are trying to feel like they can have it all, careers and kids, in a way that didn’t put them at a disadvantage at either one. But they point out that the culture and lack of governmental support is mostly to blame.
The American Psychology Association claims that women who have children report much higher stress levels and also make 80% of the family housecare decisions. Ouch.
But the good news is that there are ways to cope.
Being mindful, staying in the present mom, and getting into the right mindset can do huge wonders for your daily life as a mom.
Even if you have to say these affirmations while you’re doing the dishes, calming a crying baby, driving to work, or any of the other myriad things you do during your day, just take a deep breath.
I’m all about mindset and about pumping ourselves up for great lives as moms.
But until then, mama, you need a little pick-me-up, a little patience, and a little belief that you are doing the most important work, these Positive Affirmations for Moms are for you!
