Being a mom is a 24/7 duty.
It is one of the most challenging jobs in the world and there is no holiday on Sunday or bank holidays, rather those days are even more challenging since they are a break from the routine!
She as an individual takes a back seat.
Day in day out the only thing that a mother thinks of is her kids and her family and how to deliver the best for them.
Even on those rare occasions that they go out sans the kids, a constant feeling of guilt keeps playing at the back of their head, they keep wondering if the kids are managing or being managed fine, if the option to take a night off was correct, so on and so forth. This feeling of guilt is amplified if you are a working mother. Working mothers tend to spend every free second with their kids and naturally so, the kids do need their mothers for whatever period of time available, but in the process, even when the kids are busy or asleep, these moms tend to assume that their “me time” means finishing up the laundry or stocking up the freezer with meals or settling the house, they don’t look at themselves even for a minute and then the burnout comes around faster.
Mothers always prioritize their kids and family first, they are always at the bottom and this constant cycle subconsciously frustrates and creates discontent that comes out in various forms and can make situations with the family at times unpleasant.
The other self harming habit that moms have is to make themselves indispensable, and then when the pressure mounts they get buried under it. The bottom line is most mothers are very very hard on themselves. Take a break from it all. I don’t mean go into incognito mode and jet away to Hawaii for a month, but tweak your daily routine and make changes in your weekly schedule so that you carve out some time for yourself and bounce back as a better version of you!
Each day when your child is in school, or asleep take an hour or two out for yourself. Make a cup of tea, take your book curl up and immerse yourself in it. You could meditate, or go for a long walk even. Nap if you are constantly exhausted by it all, and trust me a good nap will help you by leaps and bounds, get you in a better mood and increase your productivity.

On weekends, you could schedule a shopping, lunch or movie date with the girls or spa time for yourself. If you are in a joint family a couples time out regularly will help you both refocus on your relationship. If you do have help with child care you could even plan a weekend away! The options are endless, if you take a step back and think about it, think about yourself for a change. Such time outs are beneficial not only to you as an individual but even to your kids and family.
