Sometimes motherhood can feel overwhelming. It’s hard to stay on top of all your responsibilities as a mother while you run a household. And often you’ll find yourself balancing motherhood, homemaking, and working – even (and especially) if you’re working from your home. And all of that is without even thinking about being a wife and taking a little time for your own pursuits!
If your house feels way out of order don’t stop reading – sometimes I feel like my home is falling apart around me, and sometimes I feel lost, confused, and even like a failure. But it’s important not to let feelings like that get to you. Getting things under control and bringing order and peace back to your home should be your goal.
Developing a routine for your day is probably the first and most important thing. I cover that in an article series for you. Setting goals is a good first step – I’ve written a useful way to think about setting goals.
After you’ve gotten your goals down you can get into the practical aspect of setting a schedule/routine up. Putting gentle rhythm into your routine is also important – it keeps things from feeling rigid.
It’s also good to figure out when lists will help you – and when they won’t.
Overall you’ll find considering your vision as a mother to be helpful to tackling life.
Many times you’re going to feel overwhelmed see how (and why) motherhood and the 2nd law of thermodynamics are so deeply related (and just how that can help you)!
If you feel utterly worn out I’ve written an extensive article on mothering while exhausted – you may glean some ideas from it!
