Ever wondered what being a work at home mum looks like? This is a perfect example: last night trying to eat some dinner quickly, get a new listing added to my nuMONDAY store, I was also editing photos to post on a Facebook post, before going Live on my page.
I got it ALL done though, eventually (I didn’t get the shop listing done till half 10 as I forgot to set it live at the time 🙈). This week I’ve had the most successful week, planning, working and actually looking after me, family and the house too. Being a mum, working in the house where your kids are 24/7 is certainly challenging, but organisation is key to focus, that and sleep! This picture actually shows you exactly why sleep is important.
I’ve had a couple of late nights entirely my own fault not following my own rules 😊 which means a late start to the day and then I still need to get certain things done in certain time frames to either look after kids in a timely manner or because they’re the best times for my clients, customers and followers. If I’d have gone to bed earlier, got up earlier and therefore got some of these things done earlier, I’d not have been cramming 4 tasks into 1 hour 😱🤪😂
That means ditching the distractions of unnecessary time on social media and watching excessive negative news and shows, taking time for self care (however you want the to be. For me it’s a shower, meditation and getting outside) and filling yourself with positive influences, reading, learning skills and meeting new people who are where you want to be in life or who have the same goals.
Being a work at home mum is challenging at times, but so fecking rewarding and fun (If it’s not fun find a different approach). Amazing things are happening and all the work is going to pay off big time!
Much love to you all
