Motherhood is constant.  It doesn’t stop when you need a break.  And while we are not always in control we do have influence.  Do we react with denial/inattention during those times we badly need a break?  I know I do.

Sometimes it works, and inattention at the moment was the best, but most times it is not ideal.

Do I really need a break, or do I just need to stop my negative thoughts and just do what I know I should be doing?  Do I  do my best to take care of myself by getting enough sleep, eating healthy, cutting back on the unnecessary, and getting support, so I can react well?  I know, it’s easier said than done, but we can give it our best.

I am realizing just how big a responsibility motherhood is.  But I am realizing it comes with joys just as big, if we’re paying attention.

What has helped you the most in managing the constant demands of motherhood?

  1. Motherhood is a blessing that comes with full of responsibilities. There are days I feel I’m overwhelmed with so many things yet I love it!

  2. Taking a break has been my biggest way of dealing with the constant demands. It doesn’t have to be a long break, but all of five minutes when I’m feeling overwhelmed usually helps. When I need it I hop on Instagram and look at pictures of dogs or the artsy stuff my friends post. Usually a few pictures in and I’m feeling in a better place to pick up and start again. Inspirational quotes can often be the same way for me.

  3. Taking a walk or getting outside always does the trick for me. Although, in winter time, that’s easier said than done. Luckily, I have farm animals I need to feed, so there is my excuse. Lol. Baking is always good, too, though that often leads to eating calories I shouldn’t.

    1. I probably need to schedule some nature in my day. Baking sounds good, except for the calories. I don’t like the process but I do like having something baking in the house .
