Find The Time To Be A Mom And A Woman

Becoming a mother requires work every day. You are responsible for the well-being and the health of your child, and consequently, you need to be always on the lookout to make sure that everything goes smoothly. But it’s not uncommon that, as a mother, you begin to forget about your needs to focus on your child’s needs. Here’s a reminder for all the mothers: you need to take the time to take care of yourself. It’s not only important for your well-being, but it is also essential to keep you strong and healthy to look after your family. From looking after your health to pampering yourself, the main struggle as a mother lies in the ability to find sufficient time. You desperately lack time when you’ve got a baby or young children around. Nevertheless, there are ways to learn to manage your time more efficiently as a mother and to be able to fulfill the needs of your life as a woman and a parent.



#1. Lose That Baby Weight Without Starving
Do you know what most new mothers have in common? They want to lose the baby weight as soon as possible! Unfortunately, it can be difficult to focus on a weight loss program when you have to look after a newborn baby. However, you may find it easier to stick to a diet if you choose a program that supports the metabolism of your body, namely a diet program that relies on the HCG hormone, http://hcgdiet.com/hcg-approved-phase-3-chocolate-chip-coconut-cookies/. What matters with those diet programs is the fact that they focus on a gradual evolution of the meals. Indeed, a fitness diet doesn’t need to remain strict forever. You can gradually reintroduce new nutrients and ingredients as time goes. In other words, pick a diet that consists of several phases to be able to sustain it through time.


#2. Spend Time With Your Friends
New mothers can find it difficult to socialize when they have young children. It is important that you remember that babies and children need to learn the keys of socialization from a young age, as described here https://kallikids.com/learning-articles-about-children/social-and-emotional-development/How-does-socialising-help-my-baby. Babies, toddlers, and young children need to embrace interactions in a group from a young age, as it is essential to their development as a healthy and socially able individual. Yes, you’ve understood it right: If you have a close friend or relative to watch your infant occasionally, even if you’ve chosen to be a stay-at-home mommy.  This gives you the time to keep your social circle of friends too. Because being a mom doesn’t negate the person you were before.


#3. Plan All The Things
The best way to get your head around your new role as a mother is to start managing your time, dividing it into mommy slots, wife slots, friend slots and me time slots. If you have not yet started a bullet journal, it’s time to embrace the concept as it’s guaranteed to keep you organized all day long. You can also set time for all necessary appointments, such as medical check-up for your child or even the hairdresser appointment for yourself. Keeping a plan also means that you can stick to your diet, as it’s already organized in time and terms of grocery shopping. In short, a bullet journal condenses all your roles into one diary book.
