Simple Living: Making Mom Life Easier

If you're a busy mom trying to keep up with the chaos, you're in the right place. Let's dive into a practical approach to handling the everyday madness with a simple philosophy: less is more. Here's how you can make life a bit easier, without the fancy jargon.

1. Doing Less, Getting More Done: Remember that saying "less is more"? It's not just a cliche. When you're juggling a million things, doing less might feel counterintuitive, but trust me on this one. Focus on what's crucial, and you'll find yourself accomplishing way more. Quality over quantity, always.

2. Letting Go of Perfect Mom Mode: Being a perfect mom? Stressful. Embracing the imperfections? Liberating. Ditching the pursuit of perfection gives you more time and energy to spend on the things that truly make you happy.

3. Saying No Without Guilt: It’s entirely okay to say "no." Even if it's to your favorite people. Saying no isn't about being rude; it's about saving your precious time and energy for the stuff that truly matters, for the people who truly matter

4. Sharing the Load: You don't have to do it all alone. Delegate when you can. It's like having your own team – you get more done, and you get to keep your sanity.

5. Breaks: Not Just for Kids: Taking breaks isn't slacking off; it's smart. Little breaks during the day actually help you stay on top of things. It's like a secret weapon for being super productive.

6. Take Care of You: Eating okay, sleeping enough, and moving a bit – basic stuff, right? But it's your superhero trio for feeling good. Take care of yourself, and you'll be surprised how much better you can tackle mom life.  It's not selfish; it's survival.

7. Keep It Simple, Mom: Less stuff, fewer commitments – that's the way to go. Clear out the clutter at home and in your schedule. It gives you more time and energy for the stuff that truly matters – your family, your sanity, and, of course, you.

8. Be Thankful for What You've Got: Gratitude is like a magic wand. Instead of focusing on what's missing or challenging, take a moment to appreciate what you have. It's a game-changer that brings more joy and positivity into your daily chaos. 

Less really can be more.

These suggestions are for those (like me) whose days are all consuming.  We’ve heard it all before.  We know these sayings so well.  Why don’t we implement them?

Sometimes we have extenuating circumstances (ie. caring for an elderly parent or neurodiverse kiddo, or we have careers that are quite demanding and we often feel we don’t have control in certain situations). 


But we do…….. at those times, we just have to dig deep and be more creative.  Give thought to one section above – even if we can only attain one in that moment, celebrate the small wins - it’s one step in the right direction.

Give it a try – there’s nothing to lose and much to gain.  I too have been on this journey.  It is a constant work in progress.  However, each day, each step is a bit more manageable and a lot more joyful – Cheers to You!
