There are two things to aim for in life; first, to get what you want;
and after that to enjoy it
Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second”
-Logan Pearsall Smith
Are you enjoying life? Or are you just going through the motion? Are you living in the moment.
I know as moms, days can go by like minutes and some days couldn’t go any slower. We get so busy with making everyone happy and loose ourselves.
Here are Five things you can do to help you enjoy life:
- FOCUS ON YOURSELF:
This may sound so impossible to moms – because being a mom is a very selfless act. But you need to learn to focus on what you are feeling and what you are experiencing – that is, “live in the moment” – so that you can truly enjoy life. For example: when you are hosting a birthday party for your child, rather than focusing on other things like the caterer, the decoration. Focus on how you are feeling at that moment: “Are you feeling happy to experience this, as mom?” “Are you enjoying yourself?”
- MAKE TIME TO RELAX:
I keep asking you to do the impossible, right?!? Before you mark this as a “NO!” Read on…when you are creating your to do list, always put atleast a 15Minutes break for yourself in the schedule. I’m sure you can spare 15mins; whether in the morning before eveyone is up, or late at night when everyone is sleeping, or any time you can carve out during the day.
- ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE HAPPY:
This is super important moms – “Stop sabotaging your happiness”.
That’s all I have to say here!
- SURROUND YOURSELF WITH POSITIVE PEOPLE:
Always check your circle – “Are you surrounded by people who will support you?” “Are these people positive especially about themselves (because as the saying goes: “you cannot give what you don’t have”. Hence, if they are not positive towards themselves, they cannot be positive towards you).
Check your circle and make new friends if you have too.
- INVEST IN YOURSELF:
Make time to read personal development books, blogposts, Listen to podcasts or watch motivational YouTube videos. Focus on loving and improving yourself.
Enjoy life MOMEADERS – because you deserve it!!!
