Let’s face it… Balancing job and family life is an extremely difficult and challenging for most of us. As a working mom, it can be difficult to find time to focus on yourself. Between taking care of your family and managing your career, it’s easy to forget to take care of your own needs. However, it’s important to remember that you need to take care of yourself in order to be the best possible version of yourself for your family and your career. That is why I am providing these affirmations for moms like you.
I was in the same boat as you when I first started using words of affirmation for mom. I was a full-time working mom who was overwhelmed by EVERYTHING.
There was waking the kids, preparing breakfast (when I could), and dropping them off at 2-3 different locations for school. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., there was work all day. After school practise, dinner, and our nightly routine followed. And who knows what else might come up in the meanwhile.
Oh, and I’m doing my best to keep my marriage with my spouse alive.
There was a LOT of it. And it is still.
But now that I’ve found some easy techniques and tools to that can assist me in coping with the overwhelming nature of the situation. It’s all about mindset, you see.
Mindset About Balancing Work and Family
Finding balance between your career and caring of your family can feel like you’re climbing an endless mountain. You just keep pushing forward, onward and upward, yet it seems like you never reach the top. And the top is where you’re headed, right?
You want to reach that peak so you know it’s all down hill from there.
But motherhood really is a balancing act. One where the weight is never evenly distributed on the scale.
But despite the fact that you are aware that things will never be in perfect harmony again, you do not give up. You do not concede defeat, throw in the towel, or relinquish control of your hopes and ambitions. You never give up because you are a strong woman who is determined to have a good experience being a mother. And you want your children to grow up believing that that everything is possible, right?
Positive affirmations are positive statements that you say to yourself in order to encourage and motivate yourself. They can help you to focus on the positive aspects of your life and to ignore the negative thoughts that can bring you down.
We pump inspiring words into our kids, like “Anything is possible!” But why are they expected to believe us, if our actions are really saying, “Just give up when things get too hard.”
If you truly believe that anything is possible, then you know it’s imperative that you do everything you can to reduce the work and family conflict to prove to your kids that where there’s a will, there’s a way.
That’s where these positive affirmations for moms come in. They will help to keep you motivated and keep your mind focused on the positive things in your life so you can overcome the overwhelm and be the best mom you can.
How to practice positive affirmations?
It’s possible to have either good or negative self-talk, but it’s far too simple to fall into those negative thought patterns. This is due to the fact that our ways of thinking are learned. What we think on a consistent basis modifies the physical structure of our brains, which makes it simpler for us to unknowingly recycle the same ideas and thoughts.
To put it another way, the more you tell yourself that you aren’t good enough, the simpler it is for you to believe it when you think about it. However, this also implies that you have the ability to change the way in which your brain functions and can train yourself to talk to yourself in a more sympathetic manner.
The findings of a number of research suggest that positive affirmations can assist us in reacting in a manner that is less defensive and resistant when we are confronted with threats. According to the findings of one study, those who smoked cigarettes responded less dismissively to graphic cigarette packet warnings and stated an intention to stop their behaviour.
But on a more fundamental level, having a flexible and extensive sense of who we are makes us more resistant to the challenges that we face. Having a larger self-concept can be an immensely helpful thing to have, especially when it comes to dealing with things like peer pressure, health data that makes us feel uneasy, or feelings of exclusion.
