This isn’t another post about self-care because we all know that being a mom, self-care isn’t exactly easy to come by. No, this post is about something more important – personal growth.
Motherhood is never ending, it’s a full time job non-stop, 24/7 with absolutely no breaks. Given all the chaos trying to raise decent human beings, it can be easy to put your own persona needs on the back burner until your kids are older.
As a mom, it’s your natural ability to want to nurture everyone around you. You spend so much time taking care of everyone else’s needs that you forget about your own. But it’s important to stop and take a break for yourself if you want to continue to grow in your own life.
Here are 4 Easy Personal Growth Tips
Remember Your Why
Remember when you were an eager young woman and wanted to tackle the world? Even though you have kids doesn’t mean you can’t be that person again! You just have to take another path, but you can still wind up at that destination. Personal growth is all about remember your why. Recall that woman you used to be and mesh her with the mom you are now and then go out and grow as mom and woman!
Simplify Your Day
If possible, do anything you can to simplify all the things you do everyday. Create shortcuts so that you free up time to do things that can enhance your personal growth like reading online articles, books, and the like. Also, use audio books while driving to work or anytime you can use to read those books you’ve wanted to devour to enhance your life. Also, get the latest cleaning technology, meal prep and automate anything you can to save time to use later to focus on yourself.
Even though personal growth is important, you don’t want to forget what matters most – your kids. Create certain times and dates that you NEED to be with your kids and then plan out any personal growth things around them.
Personal Growth With Your Kids
Even though you’re focused on personal growth on yourself, you can also learn skills and develop talents with your children along. Things like learning a new language for a better job or learning a computer program can be done with your children, so you can spend time together.
Personal growth and development is important for your own mental and physical well-being. And we all know that if mom isn’t feeling right, the entire family won’t function properly. That’s why it’s important to try and live a life that allows you to realize your potential not only as a mom, but also as a person. Personal growth is about improving your awareness and identity as a woman, allowing you to develop new skills and talents to enhance your quality of life. It’s doing things to help your aspirations and dreams come true.
Even if you’re busy being super mom at home and a professional at work, you can find ways to incorporate some personal growth projects into your already hectic schedule.
