The Ultimate Kick-Ass Strategy Single Moms Need
SHOW NOTES: EPISODE 008
In this episodes I talk about being able to balance everything without feeling overwhelmed or overworked. Also why it’s important to make time to accomplish your goals.
Through your struggle to make your life work, you feel isolated, tired, overwhelmed, stressed and when combining those feelings, depressed. You're having a hard time finding the right work-life balance and your whole life just feels like chaos.
Good is Enough
Finding balance in your life is important. It's about realizing that sometimes you need to make choices about what needs to come first. By choosing what comes first, means sacrifices. It also means that you don't have to give 100% of yourself 100 percent of the time. And by doing so reduces stress and enhances your well-being.
As a single mom, there will always be times when your personal life collides with work, but knowing what's most important will allow you to balance your decisions better. When your life starts to feel out of control is usually due to your needs not being met.
Do you ever notice what times of the day you are most productive? Why do you think that is? The first step towards achieving peak performance in your life is about starting with a routine.
Your routine is built around the first and last two hours of your day. These four hours are crucial to your day. If you don't start your day well, your day will go to hell before you even get to work because you will not be in peek state.
You'll want to use those first and last two hours to focus solely on yourself.
Maintaining a Positive Mindset
Having a positive mindset can make the transition into becoming a single mom much easier. Maintaining a positive mindset can make life as a single mom so much better.
A positive outlook on life also strengthens your immune system and the emotional quality of your life experiences, allowing you to be resilient in the face of fear, and challenge.
Setting BIG Dreamy Goals
Your dreams and aspirations do not die suddenly because you're a single mom. If anything now is the time for exploration and self-discovery. It's good to have something that gives your life purpose besides your children.
Don't be afraid to go for something because you think you won't be able to pull the necessary resources to make them happen. Do your research, crunch the numbers, talk to whomever you need to talk to and go for it!
