Making Motherhood Easier And Happier – 6 Simple Tricks To Achieve It
Create A Daily Rhythm
As it pertains to motherhood, schedules and routines play a key role. Ever since my first kid was born, I have been aiming at setting clear routine which I follow. When it comes to keeping a home, a schedule with daily duties has become my lifeline. It is so much easier to plan your day. Having such to-do list to follow helps me manage my time a whole lot better. When my own joy is concerned, I try to make sure that specific things are done on specific days over the course of the week. You will be impressed with how some little changes in your daily life can make it all easier for you. You will even have more free time to play with your little ones, and maybe even take a nap.
Include Imaginative Plays
As a mother, you have so much on your plate, and while doing the household cleaning chores or putting some makeup, may appear to be forbidden for kids, in fact, it does not have to be this way. For example, when I wash the dishes or prepare the breakfast, I allow my son to play pretend a chief (without using the electric appliances, of course). He loves making a cereal on his own while I wash the dishes. On the other hand, when I do my makeup, my other kid (a pretty young lady) is allowed to play with safer tools. This way, I can spend more time with my children without me having to neglect my daily routine. The same “tricks” can go for sweeping the floor or folding the clothes. Kids should be included in the chores, too!
Children will be children. When your little ones act out at home or in the market, try not to humiliate them. Be gentle and communicate more with them. Our kids are so much smarter than we think they are, and by paying attention to their emotions, your kids and you will be happier.
Get The Baby To Sleep
Try letting the little one put themselves to sleep. When you have fed them and changed their diapers, lay them in the crib. Do not stay in the room till they fall asleep. While the kid is asleep, you can benefit from it and do some chores or just sit back and relax. Teaching kids to sleep on their own will make everyone in the house calmer and happier.
Accepting help from friends or family members does not make you a bad mother. If someone offers to do the cleaning or go to the store for you, allow them. You will see that such acts of kindness are a lifesaver, especially if you have not slept for ages.
Involve Your Kids In The Chores
Your life as a mother is busy enough and sometimes it is very hard to do everything around your home. To balance between motherhood and home care, involve your kids in doing the domestic chores like cleaning. Even it may sound a little bit strange, kids as young as 2 years old can be given chores. The tasks, of course, have to be simpler and age-appropriate like cleaning up after themselves after a meal, putting the dirty clothes away and more. When the kids are older, they can do chores which require more efforts. Let your kids help you with washing the dishes, folding the laundry or sweeping the floors.
