12 Feb Thriving in Motherhood
A recent UK study found that mothers are 18% more stressed than other people.
This comes as no surprise considering the many hats we wear, the pressure to ‘have it all’, social
media comparisons and the mental load we carry 24/7.
This makes mothers more susceptible to burn out, increased anxiety and feeling a loss of connection
to not only themselves but their children and partner too.
Mothers need to be given a supportive, non-judgemental and nurturing space to be able to reset,
recharge and reconnect with themselves in order to feel their best.
It’s like when they tell you in the safety spiel on flights, you must fit your own oxygen mask first
before assisting others. Look after your own needs first, fill up your tank so you can give your best to
your kids, family, friends and work.
Scheduling regular self care and face to face connection is vital for reducing burn out, anxiety and
There’s no one-size fits all when it comes to self care. It’s very individual and needs to be something
that you know will make you feel better. It shouldn’t feel time consuming or feel like a chore.
Self care could be anything from watching MAFS, reading a magazine or book, knitting, going for a
walk, painting your nails or dancing.
Face to face connection is crucial for mothers. The motherhood village seems to have slowly
disappeared in the modern world leaving mothers feeling more lonely and isolated than ever.
Having a safe space to share their fears, anxiety, hopes and get different ideas and suggestions helps
mothers to strengthen their mindset and build their confidence in their motherhood journey.
