Do you ever feel inadequate as a mother and wife? Who am I kidding?? We all feel that way from time to time. Today, I welcome Rachel from The Career Bean as my guest poster. She has some great tips to help keep mommy at her finest!
You selflessly sacrifice for your family. You’re awesome at what you do and sometimes, with good intentions, in the hustle and bustle of life you forget about yourself.
Since 2009, I’ve worked with tons of clients, as a Career Coach, and at times helped them with their work/life balance. Our bodies appreciate it when we get the balance right! And …
Our families deserve mommy at her finest. Never give up mommies; your job training up your flock doesn’t go unnoticed.
Here is my formula for a first class mom.
God+Health+Intellect= what we all want aka Mommy at her finest!
Let’s break the formula down and share a couple of ideas.
1) Start or improve your prayer journal
A prayer journal is a great way to reflect and retune or thoughts to positivity. Try writing down all the things that God helped you accomplish today. Gratitude has a magical way of changing our spirits. Share parts of your journal with your hubby and another close friend.
2) Indulge in the Fruits of the Spirit
Take inventory of your life and the characters of your flock. What virtue/s need improvement? Does anything stick out to you as a major strength? Perhaps, you’re very gentle or longsuffering. Share your secrets with someone else that may benefit.
I recently read that exercising in the morning can improve our creativity. Creativity is a skill that some mommies pay big bucks for so that they can entertain their children. Get creative for FREE.
4) Schedule in spouse time.
We are more likely to achieve a goal when we write it down and share it. Do both of these things to maintain mommy at her finest.
5) Make time for reading.
According to Dave Ramsey, the average millionaire reads one book per month while the average American reads one book per year. How heinous, in my opinion, at least.
Children are sponges, and they learn by assimilation. Mommies, read so you can nurture your child’s intellect. Start out with a 3-minute article every day! That’s a great start.
6) Don’t turn your back on your professional development.
