But it doesn’t have to be that way. Overhaul your thinking and banish the guilt with these three steps.
As I tuck my child into bed, another day in my mummy life is over – and that familiar feeling of failure sinks in. I feel like a terrible mother – I can’t seem to keep up with the kids, the household is a mess, everything just feels so overwhelming and exhausting. It feels like everyone else has their shit together but ME. I feel ashamed and frustrated – why can’t I keep up? The other mums seem to have it sorted. Everyone says I should have a minute to myself to get some energy back – but even that that thought makes me feel sick with guilt.
Unfortunately, this inner dialogue is way too common for mums.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
By changing our mindset we can drastically change the way we function as mums, banishing the feelings of guilt or overwhelm.
Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean putting your goals to the wayside. What it does mean is you’ll be able to celebrate your achievements and progress as you actively take steps forward in your life. Win, win.
This is the proven three-step process I use to change my mindset toward conscious action – and away from the black hole of guilt and overwhelm. Now, you can too.
