Challenges of a mom during the pandemic

Mom the word itself implies a multi faceted role player . From the time her feet hit the ground , she’s literally on her feet . Combating various situations during the day . The challenges during the pandemic have grown . It’s definitely not easy . So many roles being juggled and yet keeping her sanity intact . She’ a cook, chauffeur, cleaner , friend , counsellor , confidant all rolled in one. For her family the SOS button at all times . Just a few tips for the loving mothers :

you matter too
I know Mother’s selflessly are busy taking care of their families and things around them . They are born with this instinct . Remember in the bargain don’t forget yourselves. You come first . Take out that so required “MeTime”. It will go a long way in maintaining your equilibrium.

Indulge
Whether it’s retail therapy , friend therapy , coffee therapy and my favourite coined term” chocolate therapy . It’s very important. Whatever makes you feel happy . Once in a while treat yourself too. How you like to treat your children. Treat the inner child in you too.

Me time
Such a commonly used word . How many of us actually practice this . We all do deserve it . Don’t feel guilty . If it’s a long soak , a head massage , a evening given to Netflix or Amazon prime . It’s fine . No mood to cook . Just read your favourite book . Excellent!!! One night a snack dinner or a take - away won’t do any harm . Please give yourself that time .

Recharge your batteries
Earlier before the pandemic, wouldn’t we all allot few hours on the weekend for ourselves. After that we wouldn’t we be geared  up for the week ahead . So what’s stopping you now from doing the same . Take out time . If you are still needing that time . Take it ! I would say grab it with both hands . We need it more now .

Drive and music 
This is what I love to do the most . Just drive around with my favourite music for sometime. Treat myself, incidentally , which I love doing the most . I buy an ice- cream or a chocolate bar . Believe me , it works like magic . 

All you lovelies out there . Each one of you is special. You matter . So start doing things you would do for someone , who’s special and matters the most . Stay blessed. Stay safe ๐Ÿ˜Š
