How do you start creating your ideal life balance? In our last blog post we discussed the signs that you haven’t got that balance right for you. But, what’s next? Making changes is always tricky - our brains are designed to react negatively to change as it’s the unknown. But having a starting point can help you to begin moving in the right direction.
Be Optimistic And Realistic
I’m all for creating the best version of your life, in fact, that’s exactly what I help mums and mumpreneurs to do. However, it does also involve being realistic. There’s no point planning child free travels to the far reaches of the planet if you don’t have a passport and appropriate childcare.
You need to be aware of your constraints. Acknowledge what they are and then look at what’s possible within them.
I know you’ve probably let out a full belly laugh at that suggestion. As a mum, you have become used to putting yourself at the bottom of the list. But your self-care is an essential priority and must feature within your ideal life balance. If you can embrace that idea, you will start scheduling the rest of your life accordingly. Not much else will function if you don’t take care of you, resulting in you pouring from an empty cup!
Be The Mum You Want To Be
Your ideal life balance is unique to you. One person’s idea of quality time having fun with their children, will be different to another woman’s view on what this would look like. Forget for a moment what anyone else expects of you, or what you think you “should” be doing. Take some time to think about the mum you want to be and the time you want with your children. When you have a clear picture of this, you can start making the changes that will make this a reality.
Start, Stop, Change
Once you have an idea of what that ideal life balance looks like for you, then you can begin thinking about the steps you need to take. After all, you can’t create that balance if you don’t know what you need to do or not do, to make it happen.
Take a look at the different aspects of your life and ask yourself the following three questions:
The answers to these questions will reveal the actions you need to start taking to create that balance and you can start creating a plan that will allow this to happen.
But this is where many people will get stuck. They just don’t seem to be able to make those changes happen or they start to doubt their decisions.
