Every mom has a load to juggle. Some moms have the responsibility of juggling work and motherhood. While this may not be easy, it is possible. Instead of putting down mothers who work, we should work hard to support them. As many as 71% of moms in the United States were in the workforce in 2012. There is a spot for working moms in the world. Check out these tips to make your life that much easier.
Don’t give yourself guilt over working
When you are working to provide for your family, why should you feel guilty? It may be hard being away from your kids, but you are doing a VERY good thing for them. One way to balance work and motherhood is to hand over the guilt.
Meet other moms who are like you
I have found that it’s easier to balance work and motherhood when you know you’re not alone. Joining a Facebook support of working moms is a good start! Meeting other moms, who are like you, will make you feel human, without a doubt.
Take it a day at a time
When you worry about tomorrow or even the rest of the week, you’re adding unnecessary stress on yourself. One of the best things you can do, when it comes to balancing work and motherhood is to take it one day at a time.
Check out the right resources
It’s 2017, and that means there are some wonderful resources out there to help women balance work and motherhood. There is a podcast and eBook that I want to share with you all. I think you will love it. Working Moms Mean Business is a podcast that you will want to check out when you need a few resources. Don’t forget to download their eBook titled Mom Guilt: Why We Have It and How to Conquer It.
