Working Mom Tips: 10 Tips For a Better Balance
I recently became a mom, and I have been documenting my working mom tips to share with you all. These are realizations I have made as I struggled to work in a job I love and spend as much quality time as possible with my now 5-month old daughter. It has not been easy, but I do have to say it has been so worth it.

Working Mom Tips

Here are just some of the breakthroughs I have had in the last five months since my daughter was born:
  • I can’t do it all. Delegate and get help.
  • Baby steps! Just make one new habit per week. Don’t try to be back to normal in one day.
  • Self-care is so important. Seriously, take care of yourself. Set aside time to journal or meditate or just take a long bath. You will be a better mother and a better worker.
  • Get outside every day. At least go for a walk. Fresh air and exercise are good for your body and your mind.
  • Prioritize your life. If it is not important, get rid of it or outsource it.
  • Try to get out of the house first thing in the morning. Otherwise, you may find yourself still be pajamas when your husband gets home at 5 pm.
  • Figure out childcare before the baby comes. It is stressful, but I wish I had arranged for at least part time child care before she was born.
  • Ask for help and then don’t worry about it. You don’t have to (and shouldn’t try to) do it all.
  • Be creative with your schedule. You might have to work at different times than 9-5 pm. This might mean waking up early, working instead of watching The Bachelor or staying up late.
  • Baby is number one. Let your work commitments go when he or she needs you and remember this time with your child is short.
