WORK HARD PARENT HARD

Being a mother is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling experiences in life, but it can also be challenging and exhausting. We are constantly on the go and try to fit what feels like a million things into one day sometimes. I have 3 young children and I work, look after the house, cook, clean, do pick ups and drop offs, oh and I decided to project manage and write 2 books last year. It has taken a while to find my groove and really restore my Self- image post babies- which is still a work in progress. I feel happy and fulfilled in my life. I feel like I have a good balance between working and being with my children and I am incorporating some of the final aspects to creating a life that I really want (more exercise and time for me).

Self Image isn’t just about Physical appearance, think about how confident you are in yourself? Do you feel positive, capable and determined in life? Cultivating a positive self image can make or break you as a woman, so what can we do to improve it?

  1. Practice self-care: As a mother, it’s easy to put your own needs last, but taking care of yourself is essential for your physical and emotional well-being. Make time to do things that you love! Whether that’s reading a book, seeing friends, going to the Gym, make sure you carve some time out each week for YOU! Trying to be as healthy as you can also really helps to boost your self image, eating well, getting enough sleep, and doing some exercise is great for your mental health. It’s taken me 3 years post twins to really start putting this into practice- it can take time, I get it, but I cannot tell you how much better I feel only a couple of months into doing more exercise and taking some more time for me. Not only am I exercising when I walk by the ocean 1-2 days a week, just being close to the water and watching the world go by is one of my favourite things. I feel so rejuvenated every time I do it.

Remember, being a mother is a journey, and it’s okay to have good days and bad days. Getting your mind focused on the positives aspects in life and practicing the areas I have just outlined, will increase your self-image and make you feel like a much more confident, fulfilled and happy mother.
