5 things to do to stop carrying the mental load of motherhood
1.You do not have to do it all
Here’s a powerful thought to tell yourself “I do not need to do it all”. It feels so empowering to know that you do not have to carry all of the responsibility yourself. This is a thought that you created thinking that you have to do it all yourself. Now, this thought does not serve you and will only keep you stuck in overwhelm and a negative mental state.
Allowing yourself to know that you do not have to do it all and that you can actually delegate task around the house to your children and partner feels good doesn’t? And, you do not need to do it all in one day. Separate your tasks on different days, that way you are not drowning in burnout.
2.Focus on one thing at a time
When you wake up first thing in the morning and start to think about everything that needs to get done around the house, you will feel overwhelmed and dread the day before it even starts. In order to reduce the mental load of motherhood, you must focus on one thing at a time. This is what i do everyday, I focus on the top 3 most important things that I want to get done for the day. Then if I have time and feel motivated, I can do one more thing. Do not overwhelm yourself with your thoughts, tackle one thing at a time. You will feel more in control, more calm and better.

3.Write your feelings down
Nothing is better than a mom who is in tune with her emotions. I mean, when you are able to create a habit on learning about yourself more through your emotions is powerful. When you journal your feelings down, you are able to release the negative emotion, understand why you feel a certain way and then take action in feeling how you want to feel instead. So if you feel like you are carrying the mental load of motherhood, write down why do you feel this way, what do you feel (symptoms) and what do you want to do instead.
