Mommies of the house are always busy taking care of loved ones around. From their food to safety to health to a better lifestyle – a mommy is always on her feet to ensure that the people around her are at peace.
Taking care of your well-being means taking care of your loved ones; it positively affects people around you, But then who takes care of her peace? Who takes care of her well-being?
No one better than herself – I have learned this through my own experiences of being a mother, a leader, and a responsible family member in an extended family at the same time. Let me share some wise words I often hear from my Big Sis with you all amazing mommies out there
Here are the 6 key things you should consider doing to work on your own well-being.
1.Put Yourself First!
No, honey, I am not asking you to do this consistently but find a specific hour in a day or a day in a week to focus on yourself and prioritize yourself over everything. It would help if you had some “me” time where everyone will know to stay away.
2. Get a Break!
Before you break into tiny bits, take a break from the things that are bothering you. If it is a house chore that you do every single day, for one day, do not do it. You can get someone around to take care of it, even if it means hiring someone for a few hours. Trust me; it will be worth it. Take a break before it breaks you.
3. Get Inspired By Yourself!
You do not need a hero figure in your life to get inspired. Take a moment to identify your unique strengths. You can write it down and read through them, seeing how awesome you are. You are a true hero yourself, and only you can remind yourself how brave you have been through dark times before.
4. Find A Friend Therapist!
Again, it is not a must to head over to a professional stress therapist if you have mental health issues. However, you need to know that it’s okay to ask for help when it gets overwhelming. No matter how tough you think you are, there are some days you’re allowed to take a back seat while others help you through a tight situation. A friend, a sibling, a son or daughter, your husband, your mentor, and even I can be your free-of-cost therapists.
5. Prioritize Your Mental Health!
If a mother figure is not well herself, the well-being of the entire family is at risk. Being the house and caretaker leader to many other people, you have to ensure that you are prioritizing your well-being over other things. If you are seeing a therapist, that’s okay too. You may want to start journaling; Journaling helps you organize, clarify, and articulate your thoughts.
6. Surrender To The Devine Goodness
And most of all, practice surrender and accept to be guided and permit yourself to be nourished by the perfect force, the all-powerful one; He is in charge and overseeing anyway. Trust that there is a divine plan for our lives, and nothing happens by accident. Recognizing and understanding that things are not only up to us; it takes the pressure and stresses off of us. Trusting and surrendering to God makes you relaxed and wind down, gives you ease, calm, and peace.
I have been through those weak moments myself. In my low moments, I felt helpless and afraid of issues that you would consider “tiny.” But they did attempt to break me. Guess what? I stepped out of that dark patch by just following these simple tricks to live a life full of motivation, strength, faith, hope, and peace with everyone around me. You can do that too.
Yes, lovely, embrace self-care and know that you will always be amazing.
