- At Home
Being a SAHM was an amazing experience for me, and I would not trade the years that I was able to be home with my growing boys for anything. I was lucky - super lucky.
Now I am a mom in business, a mompreneur, a mom and entrepreneur, a WAHM...whatever term you want to use. I also would not trade this role for anything. I am lucky - super lucky.
As moms, we all do what is right for us, and for me to be home in the early stages was right! I never judge any mom on her decision - moms work, stay home, work at home and typically end up doing a combination of all of the above. In fact, these roles seem to change throughout the life cycle of being a mom.
We are Modern Moms - all of us! We choose our own destiny and make our own rules. We juggle home, life, work, volunteerism, fitness, healthy eating, pets, extended family, and much much more. Sometimes we do it well, sometimes not so well.
As a SAHM, I certainly felt overwhelmed and busy at many points, and I definitely maximized each minute of time. As a mompreneur, I also feel crazed at times, and schedule my time to the max, too.
The point being, as moms, no matter what our choices are, we are BUSY! Often, being busy can make us stressed. The thing to remember is that BUSY is good! It means that we are pursuing our goals, living our lives fully, and reaching for our best potential.
Either way, being BUSY is still stressful! Here are a few tips that I use to cut the stress out of being busy:
These are a few of the ways that I do not let being busy contribute to stress. Remember - BUSY is good, but it does not have to be stressful!
