A new mother has to already go through tiring and sleepless days, what can we say about a working mother? Motherhood is a difficult job, the women who manage it with work are truly brilliant. However, you need to know how to keep a balance between the two. It is important to ensure that one area does not impact the other. How you manage totally depends on your situation, the kind of business you own and what you want.
The first thing to consider when you’re managing work as well as motherhood is that there’s no need to compare yourself with other mothers. You know that you’re completely in a different situation, maybe the kind of business you are in requires attention differently hence, no comparison.
Secondly, motherhood comes before anything else. Parenting should be your first priority and for that, you may need to frequently pay attention to your child needs.
Next, if you’re spending a considerable amount of time at work by treating meetings as important events, you need to do the same with parenting. Don’t miss out family events or be less enthusiastic about them. Even if you’re tired, don’t let your kids feel that you’re not interested.
Next, have to go on a business trip? Ask your kids how they feel and Include your family while deciding. All of these are little things that can have a major impact on you and your future.
Don’t be hard on yourself. In order to manage both work and family, you need to be happy and satisfied. For this self-care is important.
If you’re determined and motivated, you can achieve anything in life. Good luck!
