The Mommy Survival Guide

July 25, 2014

The more grounded and satisfied you are with life the easier it will be to be a better mom. Here is a mini mommy survival guide to help you do the best you can guilt free and happily:

The Right Choices

A good mom knows to recognize first and foremost when she has choices and when she doesn’t. For example if you cannot afford to stay home with your child, working is not a choice but a necessity. However, when it comes to whether or not you should do the dishes after dinner or play with your little one before bath time then you are a position to make the right choice: The dishes can wait.


One of the biggest challenges all mothers face is finding a way to balance their time effectively. Stop trying to have everything perfect. From the job you do at work to the way you look and how your home appears and the achievements of your children – go easy on yourself and don’t sweat the small stuff.

Guilt Free

It is important to learn to live with your decisions and more importantly to learn from what you consider to be mistakes as a mom. Instead of feeling guilty for getting angry at your little one for taking too long to tie their shoes when you are late for work learn to count to ten and help them the next time. This way you won’t feel guilty and instead use your own mistakes to learn how to be a better mom.


Learning to take care of yourself is important to mommy survival, just as important as learning to take care of your children. Give yourself time to rest, recover from illness and take a break now and then so you remain balanced, healthy and better prepared to care for your children.

Share the Care

When dad is around make sure he is sharing in the care of your children. Also recruit help when you need it from grandparents or find a great daycare or early education class for your child. Your child will grow more by being around people who love them as well as interacting with other children.

Remain Mindful

Mindfulness is all about living in the moment. Deal with each thing as it arises and don’t drive yourself to distraction with worry.
