Is it possible to be a super-mom?
Motherhood can definitely be tough when faced with the demands that so many women have in their careers and lives. For many, achieving them can be a real challenge.
Being a super-mom does not mean taking care of everything.
Keep the house tidy, take care of and raise kids, have a job, have a partner and still find time to feel beautiful and healthy … It’s a lot for a single person.
Still, it is still a goal for so many women.
Could it be that we expect too much from ourselves?
Tips for being a super-mom
The basic key to being a super-mom is to avoid overwhelming yourself with perfection, because it simply does not exist.
Based on this fundamental premise, we will give you seven tips that will be essential for you to successfully and happily travel through your journey to a more conscious motherhood.
1. Love and forgive
The love you have for your family is fundamental. After all, children will always hear an “I love you” from their parents. You can never say it often enough. Still, you still have to prove it.
Take time to play with them, study together, and share as a family. Be determined with the boundaries they need to grow up healthy and give them the fluid and timely communication they need.
Forgiveness must also be in the family dynamics. There are many times that mistakes will be made. Still, asking for forgiveness and forgiving to grow as human beings is part of a conscious motherhood.
2. Prioritize what is important
Organize your agenda and participate in and prioritize the most important things before t. If you have to quit a job and you know when to deliver the kids to school, take the time to be productive and fulfill your work responsibilities.
There are technological resources that can help you organize your commitments as a woman. Just prioritize what is most urgent and remember what should not be forgotten.
You can save on bank visits by making online transactions, and you can organize your email so that you can take care of the most important ones first.
Organize tasks in the house
Housework should be a responsibility shared by all members of the family. If you delegate the tasks to all the members, together they can achieve the clean and pleasant atmosphere they need to have in the home.
Everyone can take on tasks according to age, strength and abilities. Between all, you can organize a calendar of housework. The obsession with order and cleanliness is not healthy, nor is disorder and filth. Still, be careful about being a mom who supports machoism. Let Dad do the housework too.
4. Divide your time
In addition to housework, there must be time spent with the family. At least one meal a day should be shared, with the TV and phones turned off. Family meal promotes the physical and emotional health of children and adolescents.
Include time for each of the children, for your partner and, of course, for yourself.
Remember: you can save for tomorrow what you did not do today, but postponing it does not mean forgetting it.
5. Laugh and cry
In family life, there are good and not so good feelings. A super-mom enjoys the company of the family and shares the joy of being together.
Smile after a hard day at work ; Still, at the same time, do not be afraid to share tears with your partner and your children through tough times.
Sharing feelings, feeling them, and behaving accordingly is part of the lesson a super-mom gives her children. More than just thinking about it, children see it every day in the example set by their mother.
6. Appreciate Dad
A super-mom values father as the man who gave life to her children.
Share with your partner, whether it’s housework or babysitting.
Today, we have mistakenly created a mother figure who can do anything, who has cut the opportunity to accept the love and support of the man with whom one shares life .
If the couple is divorced, it does not mean that the children should be dissociated from the father. Even in cases where the father is absent and does not fulfill his responsibilities, a super-mom avoids inspiring rebellion or hatred in their children. Relationship problems between a couple do not have to damage the relationship with the children.
7. Take care of yourself
You need to take care of your children, but also yourself.
To be a super-mom and be ready for the demands of adult children, you need to be physically, mentally and emotionally ready for it. A good diet and exercise are essential.
In addition, if you want your kids to eat healthy and exercise from an early age, the best way to do that is with your example.
If you feel overwhelmed by your family responsibilities or do not know how to deal with any of the difficult situations that it entails, do not hesitate to seek professional help.
Your own mental and emotional balance also depends on the welfare of your kids.
A final reflection for all super-mothers
Being a super-mom does not mean super-powerful. The essential part of a conscious motherhood is to accept and recognize that you need help. It is to know when it is time to delegate. That acceptance and recognition reflects your true strength in raising your children.
This is especially important for mothers who have to raise their children on their own. Remember: there is always a helping hand, a grandmother, a brother or a sister who can give you the support you need.
Your children need your care and guidance to grow. A super-mom loves, supports, encourages, understands and at the right time she lets the children take control of their own destiny and live according to their own decisions.
