5 Secrets of Happy Moms Revealed
Happy Moms! Isn’t that a strange term. Aren’t all mothers supposed to be “happy”? But, any mother will tell you that motherhood is a roller-coaster ride, one moment you are blissfully cuddling your babies, while the next moment you find yourself cleaning poop, and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by it all. But then, there are some moms who seem to have it all under control, who remain cheerful through the spills-on-the-carpet or keep their cool when the toddler is throwing a huge tantrum. So, what are the secrets of happy moms? What is it that keeps their smile pasted firmly and their patience never ending?
- Happy Moms Ask for Help
It takes a village to raise a child and happy moms know that. That’s the reason they are not reluctant to ask for a helping hand when they need one. Sure, you can do it all alone. But then you will be exhausted, irritated and tired at the end of it. So, asking for a little help doesn’t hurt if it helps keep your spirit high and energy up for a long day. All you have to do is learn to say “Please” a little more often!
- Happy Moms Break A Sweat
A little jog and some sunshine can do wonders for anyone. Now you may ask when is the time to exercise when you are constantly tired and sleep deprived. But exercise can actually help up your energy levels and make you feel happier by releasing the happy hormones. So go grab the strollers and hit the outdoors for a nice stroll through the sunshine. Good for you – and your little one!
- Happy Moms Schedule Their “ME” Time
Baby sitting can be a very daunting task, especially if you are the only caregiver for an infant or a toddler through the day. But happy moms figure a way to squeeze in their “me-time” regularly. And no, you don’t need to feel guilty about it. Sometimes it’s okay to let the mess just be and enjoy a little downtime for yourself.
- Happy Moms Learn Not To Sweat The Small Stuff
Happy moms focus on the big picture. And this may be a cliche to say, but it’s easier said than done. A messy room may not look like small stuff at the moment, but remember that one day your children will grow up and move away, and you will miss the messy days. So happy moms consciously take a step back to see the big picture.
- Happy Moms Know How To Let It Go!
Lack of control is the reality of parenthood. You become a parent, and suddenly you realize that your day is not longer in your control. But, if you want to be a happy mom, don’t be a control freak. Happy moms know how to let it go! Sure, things won’t be perfect all the time. There will always be something that needs to be done! But remember, that your child is not going to stay little forever. So cherish the moments till they last!
