Essential Habits Of Happy And Successful Moms To Incorporate In Your Life Right Now
Stay up Late or Get Up Early
It’s easy to say “get more sleep”, but let’s face it that’s easier said than done. The most effective moms in the world are those who either get tons done during the early hours of the morning or late hours of the night. There is no in between and there is no such thing as an effective mom who does both early hour work or late night work. Figure out which works best for your schedule and lifestyle so that you can opt to get up earlier to tackle that to-do list or stay up a little later to tackle that to-do list and soon you’ll find that your days are easier and more gets done.
Do Not Procrastinate
Successful moms do not procrastinate in life. They know that they have a specific number of hours to get the day’s items done. This could mean that they priorities tasks based on time of day or they allot specific times of day to each to-do list item. Some successful moms have found that designating an hour to household chores, one hour to work at home tasks and one hour to other miscellaneous tasks has allowed them to get more done in a day before the children arrive home.
Successful Environment Setup
All successful moms may not have a clean home at all times, but they do their best to ensure the environment at home is set up for success. This means that they do their best to keep clutter at a minimum, they have their kids pick up after themselves to alleviate little messes all over the home and perhaps they even have inspiration posters and plaques in their home to keep their successful mind on track to get everything done without stressing out.
Masters of Multitasking
Successful moms are masters of multitasking. They simply know how to get the dishes done while laundry is in the wash, then switch the laundry to the dryer and do another chore while the clothes are drying so that by the time that one load of laundry is complete they have accomplished at least 4 things on their to-do list. successful moms make the most of their time they have at home to ensure they get everything completed with the use of multitasking skills.
Built a Support System
Effective moms build a network around them of family, friends, colleagues, and other reliable people for support. Whether it’s for some time to vent or a playdate to tire out the kids, effective moms build up a tribe. With social media, it can be easier to reach out when you need advice or help from others. You don’t have to go it alone, but if you do, perhaps you won’t feel alone.
There’s No Comparison
As in, happy moms don’t compare themselves or their situation to others. Comparing can be easy in this social media-obsessed world, but those who are most successful work on their own happiness and are happy for others’ success, not jealous. If you feel yourself constantly comparing, then take a break from social media. Do some soul-searching and remember all the good you have going on in your life and all the good you are working towards.
Masters of Saying NO
Lastly, successful moms have learned that it’s okay to say no. They have mastered the skill of saying no to things that won’t fit into their schedule or cause a ruckus with their normal day to day routine. These successful moms don’t feel guilty telling a friend that they can’t meet for coffee on a particular day or time. They also don’t feel bad saying no to adding more items to their to-do list. This allows successful moms to focus on their priorities and getting things done every day.
These habits of happy moms are what moms do to keep their life in order. Sure they may still experience stress or chaos, but when you can learn to master these top habits of successful moms you’ll find that you too can live a more purposeful and peaceful mom life.
