Designing the Perfect Wellness Routine
When you are a busy, hardworking mompreneur, designing a wellness routine can feel daunting. Managing a family and a successful business requires 24/7 energy, concentration, and attention. A powerful wellness routine will keep you energized and positive so your personal and professional lives can thrive.
When you take care of your mental and physical health, you allow yourself to fully be there for your family, your clients, and yourself. To achieve your healthiest, happiest lifestyle while you manage your hectic world follow these simple steps.
Know What You Want
Bringing happiness and success into your life is much easier when you are crystal clear about what you truly want.
Don’t be distracted by comparing yourself and your life or lifestyle to those of other women. A comparison is a sort of empty competition that brings little satisfaction. In fact, it is more likely to damage your self-esteem. Instead, set your own goals, and find your own priorities.
The first step is deciding what makes sense in your own lifestyle, then focusing on achieving it. Perhaps you’d get the most satisfaction if you and your family simply set aside time for group dinners each night, or by making it to the gym three times each week, or taking a pottery class.
Setting specific physical and mental wellness goals is far more effective than simply saying, “I want to be healthier” or, “I wish I had more time for ___”.
Set Clear Action Steps
Once you know what you want from your wellness routine, you can back-track the steps required to make it happen. Creating real change for yourself (even if you have other priorities at the same time) is far easier when you have something specific in mind.
Set SMART goals based on your ideal wellness routine to take easy actions towards progress. If your goal is to cook more meals at home, bring your children to the grocery shop with you once a week to stay accountable. If your goal is to prioritize sleep, set alarms to remind your family it is time to begin winding down for bed at a certain time.
Knowing exactly what your wellness to-do list looks like will help you manage your tasks just like you do at work.
Delegate, Delegate, Delegate
Mompreneurs may often have a difficult time delegating, but no one can do it all by themselves.
There is so much responsibility in being a successful professional and a mother that the pressure may cause you to take too much on yourself for fear of missing a step.
Reframing this mindset and allowing yourself to shift responsibilities onto others will allow you to take a step back and focus your energy on the top priorities in your health and life.
Ask your children to take on more chores so your home life runs smoothly. Ask your employees to grow in their positions by taking on more responsibilities. When your time and energy is spent on only the tasks that you alone can do, you can better enjoy the time and space to take care of yourself.
Eat What Feels Good
Healthy eating may feel intimidating for working mothers who often struggle with shortages of time and energy. While it does require effort to cook healthy meals, there are ways to do so efficiently and deliciously.
Eating whole foods—minimally processed fruits and vegetables—also allows you to increase your energy levels. They also can improve your mental health so you can go about your work and life with a great mood and a clear mind.
You don’t have to do a total diet makeover overnight. Eating healthy can happen with incremental steps, so you don’t feel intimidated or overwhelmed. For instance, you can spend an evening trying a new healthy recipe with your children or enjoying a nutritious meal at a restaurant.
Eating in a way that supports your best energy levels will reward you and your productivity in the long run.
Ask for Help
Asking for help is a crucial skill to build as part of your overall wellness routine.
Working and managing motherhood may feel like obligations you cannot step away from, but getting the help you need for your physical and mental health can make a lifetime of difference for yourself and your family.
You may want to consult with a licensed psychologist for stress or relationship concerns. If you have serious addictions or mental health disorders, you may want to reach out to holistic therapy centers for more natural remedies and strategies, not just pills. Visiting your primary care doctor regularly can also positively impact your long-term health.
Create Your Powerful Wellness Routine
By taking proactive measures as part of your regular wellness routine, you can avoid excess stress or damaging habits before they negatively affect your work or family life.
All ambitious mom entrepreneurs deserve a powerful wellness routine that will make you feel your best. When you are taken care of, your family and work become a reflection of your best self.
