It changes you for the better! Start practicing selfcare 5 minutes a day and you will definitely start becoming a better mother to your kids.

7.Learn how to manage your emotions
Learning to manage your emotions as a mom is crucial in becoming a good mother. Why? Because this will help you to respond instead of reacting to situations and everyday mom struggles. Instead of yelling you are able to calm down and ask questions or find solutions. So ask yourself “what do I want the end result to be and what can I do or say to help me get there?”. You can have tools that helps you regulate your emotions like meditating, journaling, saying affirmations, doing yoga. Finding something that works for you!
8.Learn how to manage your brain
Managing your brain is what I support my mom clients in through my 1:1 private mom support program. What does managing your brain even mean? Well it’s really being able to understand that sometimes your brain will offer you thoughts that are just thoughts and not true. For example, you made a mistake and now your brain is telling you that you don’t know what you’re doing as a mom. That’s a thought, not a fact. You choose to believe it or not. Based on what you choose that’s how you will act on. So you have the power to manage your brain in not believing in what it offers. And instead offer it something more empowering and positive.
9.Ditch your inner critic
Your inner critic is the voice that you hear in your head 24/7. What is it telling? What does it say most of the time? If it’s constantly putting you down and being negative. You must shut it down. And you do this by saying “thank you but I’m going to choose to believe this instead”. You want to create a habit in where you are constantly feeding your mind and thoughts positivity. This way you can keep your inner critic from showing up in your life. It will help you be more confident, trust yourself more and transform into a better mother.
10. Practice self love
Practicing self love as a mother to enjoy your motherhood more is important. You want to celebrate yourself, be more proud of yourself and truly love and accept yourself 100%. It’s what will help you have a more better motherhood experience. It’s what you want to model for your kids. Self love is not being hard on yourself or putting yourself down. Is all about embracing who you are as a person and mother and loving every part of it, the good the bad and the ugly.
11.Stop complaining about your life
Okay mama, if you find yourself constantly complaining about your life. Then, things need to change. Nobody likes a complainer. You are only bringing negativity into your life and you’re only seeing the bad and not the good. So, let’s shift the complaining into taking action and doing something about your life. What is it that you find yourself complaining about? What first action steps can you take to eliminate it or make it better? Do you have to change first? Focus on the things that are going right and not what’s going wrong. Try to eliminate the complaints about your partner, kids and life. Instead focus on taking action.

12. Speak positivity over your life and family
How good does it feel to feel good about the life that you are creating? Even if you don’t 100% love your life right now you can still speak positively over it. Why? Because what you put out is what you will get and create. Speak about the things that you want and not the things that you don’t want. Speak positively over your husband, kids, house, work, life. And see how your life will start changing for the better.
13. Model behavior that you want to see
Here’s a big one mama! If you want things to start changing in your life then you need to start changing yourself. If you want your husband to treat you more with patience and understanding. Ask yourself “Am I holding space for my husband and do I treat him with love and patience?”. If not, start doing it yourself first. If you want your children to listen to you more, then start listening to them more too. So, it’s more about changing yourself first and model good behavior by being the example to follow. It will help you be a better mom and wife.
14.Celebrate yourself more
Okay mama, what are we celebrating today? Practice to celebrate yourself more and acknowledge the small mama wins in your life. Celebrate the process and journey into becoming the mom that you want to be and creating the life that you truly want. Hey! folded the clean laundry today after a week sitting in the laundry room?

15.Apologize for your mistakes
Have you ever apologize to your kids or partner when you reacted in a negative way or hurt their feelings? It’s totally okay to say “sorry, I did this or that”. It encourages your children to do the same. Not only that they see you as more human, lol. It’s weird but it really feels great to apologize and show your loved ones that you also make mistakes and that you own up to it.
16.Give yourself compassion
I know that motherhood can feel hard sometimes and you just want to give up. You will make mistakes and feel like a failure or not good enough. I want you to sit with those feelings and then give yourself compassion. Give yourself love and know that it’s okay. Tell yourself that you are doing your best and that you are learning as you go. Give yourself encouragement and trust that you have everything within you to be a better mother and truly enjoy your motherhood life.
