Just because you’re a busy mum with a busy family doesn’t mean that you have to be stuck in life with no ambitions or dreams.

Every morning I find the time to write a gratitude list. It only takes a few minutes to brainstorm 5-10 things I’m really grateful for in my life, but it makes the world of difference to how I am for the rest of the day. I’m calmer, more patient, more relaxed and definitely a better and more present Mum. Check out my post on why a morning gratitude list is the best thing you can do all day.
As Mums we often think that we’re meant to be looking after our family all the time, every minute of every day. In fact, we’re so conditioned to feeling like this that we feel guilty or selfish when we take some time out for ourselves. Sometimes to the point where it spoils our enjoyment of whatever we’re doing and we might as well not have done it in the first place. But, we need to remember that although we think we’re invincible, we’re not. We’re only human and there’s only so much we can take before we burn out if we don’t put ourselves first every now and then. If you need some reassurance or more convincing then check out this post on why Mums shouldn’t feel selfish for looking after themselves.
