Its Time to Debunk Common Mom Myths and Embrace a Healthier, Happier Motherhood
Hey, moms! Tired of feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, and like you'll never have time to take care of yourself? Well, it's time to debunk these common myths about motherhood once and for all! We often hear myths and stereotypes about motherhood that can leave us feeling discouraged. These myths can create unrealistic expectations and even prevent us from taking action to improve our well-being. It's important to recognize that these myths don't have to define our experiences as mothers. The truth is, you don't have to live with constant exhaustion, overwhelm, or neglecting your own self-care. 

Let's look at 3 mom myths.

Myth 1: It is inevitable that you will be exhausted.
The truth is that while motherhood can be demanding, it doesn't mean that you're destined for constant exhaustion. Check your priorities!  It's ok to leave the least important things by the wayside for a season.  Obviously, your family is #1!  But to take care of your family, you must have energy!  And the go-to can't be energy drinks, coffee, or other stimulants which wreak havoc on your adrenals.  Prioritize sleep (when you can), fresh whole foods,  exercise, and water.  Add in my favorite antioxidant drink that kept me from falling asleep at the dinner table when I was pregnant with my 7th child, and you will be set! These may seem simple, but they make a world of difference and you will feel vibrant and alive.  You can do it all and still have energy.

Myth 2: You will be overwhelmed.
Although motherhood comes with its fair share of challenges, it doesn't mean you'll always feel overwhelmed. Learning effective time management strategies, setting boundaries, and asking for help when needed can significantly reduce feelings of overwhelm. Developing these skills goes a long way to help you better manage stress and maintain a sense of balance in your life. Keep yourself organized and stay on top of things so they don't pile up, delegate tasks, and take breaks to recharge. This will ensure that you can handle the demands of motherhood without feeling constantly overwhelmed.  Overwhelm is a state of mind, and by staying organized and maintaining a structured approach to daily tasks, you can effectively prevent it from taking over your life.

Myth 3: You will never have time to take care of yourself.
Self-care is crucial for all moms, and it IS possible to make time for it despite a busy schedule. By intentionally carving out moments for yourself (even just 5 minutes at a time if that's all you can manage during certain seasons), and integrating self-care practices into your daily routine, you can not only support your own well-being but also be better equipped to care for your family. Join a book club, learn meditation, just relax and enjoy some music, exercise, or indulge in hobbies that bring joy and fulfillment.  While some of these may require getting help so you can do them, many are possible on a day to day basis by carving out a little time.  

I wish I had someone tell me these things when I was younger, I learned them little by little, many times the hard way - by crashing and burning.  If you are ready to take some time for yourself, take control of your health and well-being both physically and mentally, join me for the Jumpstart.  By participating in this program, you'll gain access to a meal plans, schedule, and recipes, exercise routines, mindset mastery, and a supportive community of like-minded moms who share your goals and aspirations. The Jumpstart program provides guidance on creating sustainable habits that lead to increased energy and overall well-being.
