What does it mean to reset your mom days?
Resetting your days as a stressed out mom is to find ways to turn it around. Meaning to make your mom days feel better and easier. When you press the reset button, it just means to start all over again with a different mindset, different thoughts and actions. To help your days be different and better.
7 quick ways to reset a stressful mom day
1. Be Intentional
A great way to reset a stressful mom day is to start choosing to be intentional with your days. Think about it, your days are filled with so many demands that it becomes an auto-pilot life. Meaning there’s no purpose or intention of the things that you actually WANT to do. So how do you create more intentional mom days? Start by deciding how you want your days to look like and feel like. What do you want to be doing? What do you want to see? How do you want to take care of yourself?
So many moms feel like they have no control over their days. When in reality they do! You do mama, you have the power to change your motherhood life by being more intentional with your days 🙂
2. Practice gratitude
I’m a huge believer in practicing gratitude as a mom. It really does changes your life for the better. When you practice gratitude you can quickly change your view about your life. Suddenly the things that you’re stressed out about as not as important as you are making it seem. You start to love your life, the everyday things become more important, you’re happier and start to love your mom life again. Practicing gratitude can quickly reset a stressful mom day.
3.Change things up
How many times do you wish your days could be different? You do the same chores, you’re taking your kids to the same park or you’re home all day? How about you change things up, spice up your mom life if that’s even a thing, lol. But you get what I mean right? Don something fun for once. Have a singing competition with your kids, dance and be YOU! Sometimes we are too into being parents and doing housewife things that we forget who we are. We forget that we are fun too!
You can also decide to go to the zoo, or to a garden to walk. Doing something fun can definitely reset a bad mom day.
4. Ask yourself this question
I love to ask myself this question and now I am sharing it with you. Every time you feel stressed out, overwhelm or burnt out as a mom. I want you to ask yourself ” What do I need in this very moment to feel better, calmer and happier?”. What this is going ton do is help you to stop and take care of your needs and wants. Do you need to take a 5 minute break? Do you need to breathe? Do you need help? What do you need in order to feel less stressed today? And don’t forget to follow through with it.
5. Say positive affirmations
Listen mama, positive affirmations aren’t corny okay. I love to write affirmations down in my journal or just saying out loud an encouragement word helps me turn my day around. What this will do is help you shift your thoughts from negative to positive. So you can start by saying “I can figure this out” if you’re stressed out about something or can’t figure out how to help your child stop throwing a public tantrum. Another one is “It’s okay, tomorrow will be a new and better day”, it’s hopeful and makes you feel good that this day shall pass.
Mama, You got this. You really really do. We all have bad or hard mom days. We all can benefit from resetting our mom days and making it better.
Some days you just nee to breathe to regroup, feel refresh and change your mindset. When you pause to take a couple of deep breaths, you are able to reflect. You are able to stop, reflect and then decide how you want to continue on with your day. Or how you wish to react to your child’s behavior etc.. It’s so powerful to pause, breathe and reflect.
7.Give yourself grace
One empowering way stressed moms can reset their days is to stop being hard on themselves. Haven’t you notice that the more you call yourself out, are hard on yourself the more stressed and overwhelming your days go? I know that I have felt this way. I would always say “I’m so stressed” and the more I said it, the more stressed I was. So practice giving yourself grace and love. It’s okay if you lost your shit or yelled at your kids. This does not define who you are as a mom.
You can easily try again and do better. Give yourself grace mama, you’re doing a great job.
