How to stress less while staying at home with toddler/toddlers.
I was 22 years old when I got pregnant and at the age of 23 I gave birth to my first born child, it’s a little bit difficult transitioning from life of an adult who’s responsible only for herself to a stay home mom. At first I had no idea how to properly manage my time, I woke up when my baby did and I had no goals for the day. As a mother there are many problems you encounter but seeing your little one grow and become smarter everyday is very fulfilling.Life with a baby is a wonderful and difficult journey but I learned so many things in the process. So I decided to collect some tips that come to my mind and finally share it to everyone.
WAKE UP EARLY IN THE MORNING
I have an insomnia, so it’s difficult for me to sleep during the night I usually sleep around 1am before but since the day I became a mother I was able to manage my sleeping pattern. When I realized how little we can accomplish during the day the first adjustment I made was to set an alarm and woke up early. Waking up early can be a huge benefit, people who woke up early tend to be more confident,more organized, healthy and happy people.
ORGANIZE YOUR MORNING ROUTINE
The key to a productive day is getting a good start in the morning, As a stay home mom I started my day by preparing breakfast for my little boy once his done I eat my breakfast as well and then prepare myself for the classes in the morning.Once I’m done with my work as an online teacher I prepare his bath and then spend time with him, we play with his toys and read story books sometimes.Those things become my habit everyday my body and brain adopted the process and I easily adjust to my morning schedule.
DO SOMETHING YOU LIKE
Being a mother is a little bit stressed, sometimes set aside those problems and think of ways to make your time more enjoyable.I so love watching animes, cooking and listening to music these are the things I usually do to set a positive mood. And it really helps.
PLAY WITH YOUR KIDS
Children crave times with parents.It make them feel special, playing with kids builds a bond that last forever it lets the child know that he or she is appreciated.It is also great stress reducer for over worked parents. So everyday I spend time with my son playing with his ball, cars and even watch nursery rhymes with him. Play time can be use to teach your child patience, problem solving and social skills.
A famous quote says ” You’re what you eat” It’s simply says that a person becomes related to the food that they ingest. Here are some healthy tips I read and apply in my daily life.
1.Eat three time a day (Breakfast,Lunch and Dinner)
2.Avoid eating raw or under cooked meats of any type
3.Spend some of your time exercising
4.Eat more fruits and vegetables
6.Meditation helps your mental health
These are the things I learned for the past 2 years with the help and guidance of our family my partner and I are able to raise our son properly. I hope these things will help everyone who is reading this. It’s a simple guide to make our daily lives more productive. Thank you
