An ideal homemaker is lovely to look at and lovely to be around–she has a wholesome attitude and pleasing appearance – Daryl Hoole

Are you a stay-at-home mom overwhelmed by your daily homemaking routines?  Does life feel boring and frustrating – cleaning, cooking, picking up every day?

I completely understand. I have been there. It’s pretty apparent to feel so!

While meals, dishes, laundry, and clutter are the daily stuff, there are also days that come with additional surprises. Examples: a family member not feeling well; kids hurting themselves while playing; an unannounced company or an unavoidable event that you want to give miss but cannot.

After the long grinding between the chores, kids, husband, work from home, and social life, people also expect you look fresh, positive, well-kept, and inviting all the time.8 Ways To Enjoy Being A Stay At Home Mom/Wife

Trust me, homemaking or working from home is an excellent choice, you can actually enjoy it if you make a little time for yourself in your day. During this time you’ll solely focus and concentrate on yourself.

It might sound selfish but you require some space to breathe.

Even if you’re a new mommy, you need to find someone, maybe your husband or your mommy or your mom-in-law to babysit your baby at least for an hour and nap.

You need to give yourself 80% before you give your family, home, and work 100%.

Remember we are humans too.

We need proper nutrition, hydration, and rest to survive.

Who’s going to do that for you, if not you?

Here are some ways, which, will help you enjoy being a stay-at-home mom/wife:

8 WAYS TO ENJOY BEING A STAY-AT-HOME MOM/WIFE

1. Know the importance of some ‘me’ time:

Having some ‘me’ time in a day is crucial if you really want to enjoy being at home. Choose a convenient time and block 30 minutes on your To-Do list every day for yourself.

During this time, slow down to enjoy your cup of coffee, watch a favorite show on Netflix, and spend some time gardening, or chatting with a friend. Include activities that you crave.

2. Have a home management binder:

A home-management binder will simplify your life. A home management binder will hold everything you need in one place. Cleaning routines, schedules, meal plans, contact details, addresses, bill dates, birthdays and events, etc., It might take a little time to assemble all the things but it’ll be worth every moment.

3. Take a day off:

I can’t stress enough on this one. It’s imperative. You require a short break, from any and every type of work, in order to be efficient and to endure. Or else the physical and mental fatigue will affect your health and relationships.

Pick a day, when you can take the time off from cooking, cleaning, housework, and office work. And, spend this day with your family or do what you love.

For me, it’s when my husband is not working. So, we both can have a wonderful time together. This gives a boost to perform the week’s activities gracefully. Try it and let me know.

4. Take care of yourself:

Take care of your health the same way you do for your family. Have food on time, hydrate yourself, do a quick 10 minutes workout, and get enough sleep. Groom yourself and wear nice dresses.

Now, this is a big ONE. Homemaking is an occupation, and if you work from home, that means your home is your workplace in two ways.

I agree it’s okay not to do your hair, bath, or dress up once in a while. Since that’s the main advantage of working from home. You have the freedom to be in your pajamas, look like a hot mess and smell gross.

But if you want to be productive, you’ve got to take a shower and dress up first thing in the morning. You should never lose an opportunity to look your best. Your husband should feel refreshed, looking at you, when he’s home from work compared to his (female) colleagues. You know what I mean, right?

5. Find ways to simplify your household tasks:

Try different methods to see what works for you and stick to it. Use different apps, planners, and printables; watch cleaning, cooking, organizing, kid’s activities videos on youtube, or read articles on google to learn simple techniques to carry out daily tasks effortlessly.

There’s so much detailed information available out there. I’m sure you’ll discover pretty much everything for yourself.

6. Stay active on social media:

By staying active, I mean, keeping up with what’s happening around the world, staying connected with your friends, and learning new things about your work and life.

I don’t mean, posting the updates continually and then keep on counting the likes and comments. No, that’s a trap. That’ll obstruct your efficiency and leave you distracted and disappointed.

7. Buy something for yourself every month:

This inessentially means buying something high-end or expensive. Although, you can do that if your budget allows you to. But in general, a small yet cute gift for yourself to pep up your mood. Or maybe a one-day gateway with your husband leaving the kids at your parents’ place.8 Ways To Enjoy Being A Stay At Home Mom/Wife
