Do you hit a mental brick wall at some point in the day because you’re so tired that you just can’t summon up enough energy to carry on?

Or, do you feel like screaming at the top of your voice that you want some alone time but instead your kids are clinging to you and won’t stop asking for things or demanding your attention. Before you lose the plot entirely, or for times when you need a shoulder to cry on or some encouraging words to show you that you CAN do this, remember these 5 quick ways to motivate, encourage and help an overwhelmed Mum when she can’t take any more.

why I started blogging

6 reasons why I started blogging – A Mum in Progress

I began blogging because I wanted to share what I had learnt about how simplifying my life had completely turned my life around. By embracing Minimalism and the philosophy of simple living and applying it to every aspect of my life I became a much better Mum. I was able to enjoy life more and really embrace motherhood, rather than just struggling to get through each day until the kids were in bed. I wanted to share my passion for a simple life and help other overwhelmed, struggling Mums or just Mums in general, find ways of making things easier, simpler and more enjoyable. Now my blog has become part of me, I regularly get asked about it, so I wrote this post to help friends, family and anyone else who’s interested – 6 reasons why I started blogging.
