5 Ways to Keep Motherhood Simple



In the whirlwind of motherhood, adaptability has become my superpower. Our little ones are always changing and staying flexible while simplifying always does the job for me. Here are a few things I live by that help me stay sane in this thing called motherhood.

 

Stick to a routine. Create daily routines for both you and your child. This includes mealtimes, bedtime rituals, and play schedules. Having a routine helps our children feel secure and makes transitions a lot smoother. This not only reduces stress for you but your child. Now this routine can change but it's nice to have something to refer to so you’re not all over the place. Think of our routine as a safety blanket—soft and flexible but oh-so-comforting. It's there to give us a sense of direction when the winds of motherhood changes start blowing.


 

Embracing simplicity. As I grow older, I find myself wanting less. Living with fewer things just brings me joy, and it opened my eyes to the beauty of slow living. Simplicity can look different for everyone. Maybe it's simplifying your home environment, minimizing clutter, or even adopting a flexible mindset. Whatever that looks like for you, do it. Keeping it simple, makes more time for fun, joy, and those precious moments with your kids.

 

Ask for help. Motherhood is an incredible journey, but it's not a solo mission. It's okay to reach out and share the responsibilities with others. When we reach out for support to others, it gives us a chance to breathe and reminds us that we’re never alone. Ultimately, seeking help allows us to focus on what truly matters: nurturing our children and ourselves without feeling overwhelmed by the enormity of it all.

 

Focus on Essentials. Prioritize your tasks and focus on what’s essential. You don’t need to excel at everything. It simplifies things by helping us decide what's necessary and what's extra. This allows us to cherish the moments that truly count.

 

Saying no. Learning to say no to non-essential commitments or activities can help prevent burnout. Try prioritizing activities that line up with your values. Never feel guilty for simplifying your commitments. This gives you more time for the joys and memories of your family.
