Today marks a new day, a new month and for many of us new goals. Its like you hear everyone say today is the first day of the rest of your life, do something with it. At the start of every month I like to set myself up for success and lately that just means finding the balance in my life.
Being a stay at home Mom is hard a lot of the time because sometimes I lose my identity and get wrapped up in my family. I'm not saying they aren't important but being an individual shouldn't be impossible when you're a Mom. That's why I'm sharing with how setting yourself up for success is so important!
5 Simple Steps to Set Yourself Up For Balanced Success
That's right! Making what seems impossible POSSIBLE! By taking the time to stop and think about YOU and what YOU really want is more important now then it has ever been. What does balance look like in your life and what can you do to get there?
Plan, Plan and Plan Some More!
Get the Family Involved
Get a little selfish and take some time for Mom! Nobody is going to blame you if you want to take some time for yourself and meet a friend for coffee, walk around the block or maybe even take a bath solo. Trust me without small breaks from my Mom life I would never be able to find any balance.
Its Ok to Say “NO”
As busy Mom's sometimes we feel like we're getting pulled in a million directions all at once. Before you commit to something next time stop, count to 5 and then respond. By taking a moment to be aware of the decision you're making will help you avoid having regrets later. Spreading yourself too thin is never good for anyone.
Journal, Set Goals and Be More
One thing I took for granted for a long time was believing in myself and what I was capable of. When I finally starting journaling again I started realizing all the things I was putting aside for no real reason. I challenge you to take my Start Your New Journey Challenge! It is all about getting where you want to be. I have a fun vlog where I talk about my journey and why I took the challenge myself. Take a peek and let me know what you think!
How do you keep everything balanced?
