Here are a few tips on finding Balance in Motherhood #BlogchatterAtoZ

Dear readers, this is my sixth post on a month-long writing challenge with Blogchatter and I hope to touch the finish line, this time. My younger one is starting school in a couple of days. He was born during COVID-19, one of my life’s most difficult times. However, all I remember are good memories or such is the human brain. For survival, we fixate on happy memories and try to remember all good things.

Motherhood is a journey filled with joy, love, and countless rewards, but it can also be demanding and overwhelming at times. Amidst the responsibilities of our children, managing our households, and perhaps balancing work or other commitments, it’s easy for mothers to put their own needs on the back burner. However, prioritizing self-care is essential for maintaining our physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Finding a balance between nurturing our families and ourselves is beneficial for us as mothers and sets a positive example for our children.

The Myth of Supermom

In today’s society, there is often pressure on mothers to embody the ideal of “supermom”—to effortlessly juggle multiple roles and responsibilities without showing any signs of fatigue or stress. However, this unrealistic expectation can lead to feelings of inadequacy and burnout. It’s important to recognize that it’s okay to ask for help and to prioritize our own needs alongside those of our families. The concept of “being a supermom” is flawed, new moms are often burdened with this phenomenon and feel inadequate trying to achieve it. It takes a village to raise a kid and it is just not a phrase. `

Fostering Self-Care Practices

Self-care looks different for every mother, but it’s essential to carve out time for activities that recharge and rejuvenate us. Whether it’s taking a long bath, going for a walk, practicing mindfulness or meditation, or simply enjoying a cup of tea in peace, finding moments of self-care throughout the day can make a world of difference in our overall well-being. For me, a half hour walking or reading a book for an hour works well. Writing blogs and reading something interesting is equally therapeutic for me. The focus should be on doing anything that relaxes you, sometimes doing nothing works wonders too.

Fostering Fulfillment Beyond Motherhood

While motherhood is undoubtedly a central aspect of our identities, it’s important to remember that we are multifaceted individuals with interests, passions, and dreams outside of our roles as mothers. Finding fulfillment beyond motherhood—whether through pursuing hobbies, furthering our education, or nurturing our careers—can help us maintain a sense of identity and purpose separate from our roles as caregivers. Our kids must trust us and that would only happen if we trust ourselves. One can’t pour from an empty cup, being a mother it is important to feel happy from within to raise a happy child.

Forging Connections

This is one part of my life that I struggled with the most. It is known that motherhood can sometimes feel isolating, but connecting with other mothers can provide much-needed support and validation. Whether joining a parenting group, attending a mom’s meetup, or simply reaching out to a fellow mom for a chat, forging connections with other mothers can remind us that we’re not alone in our experiences and struggles. Thanks to social media communities it is easier to reach a group of moms who resonate with your emotions.

Fostering Resilience

Motherhood is a journey filled with highs and lows, triumphs and challenges. Cultivating resilience, the ability to bounce back from setbacks and adversity can help us weather the inevitable storms of parenthood with strength and grace. By acknowledging our struggles and seeking support when needed, we can emerge from difficult times stronger and more resilient than before.

Finding balance in motherhood is an ongoing process that requires intention, self-awareness, and compassion. Hope you find your tribe and thrive, if not then the comment section of this blog is open for all the moms and I promise to be a listening partner in this rollercoaster ride of motherhood.

Happy Parenting Mamas!
