Taking the time to start your day in the right frame of mind can make a world of difference in how efficient you are throughout the day.
As a mompreneur, you already have a lot on your plate. You’re juggling family life, managing your business and trying to make time for yourself in between.
To be honest, it can be very easy to get stuck. Sometimes it’s hard not to wake up and immediately feel resentful about your day. So here are a few ways to help you as Mompreneur change your morning mindset as a working mom so you can make the most of your day.
Record your thoughts
Keep a journal beside your bed or create a special place in your notes app dedicated to writing your thoughts down.
First thing in the morning, spend at least five minutes writing down how you feel. Ask yourself: What am I feeling? What am I thinking? Am I excited for the day ahead? Does my mind keep focusing on a daunting task that is causing me stress? Or do I have ideas and enthusiasm bubbling up that just need some direction and support?
When you start to record your thoughts each morning, you’ll start to recognize patterns and triggers when you’re in an unproductive mindset and learn ways to shift them.
Examine your mindset
Now that you have things written down, take a moment to look at the big picture.
Are all of your thoughts and feelings negative? Also, spend a moment to examine how your body feels with all of those emotions are you tense and achy from stress? Or maybe relaxed and excited for the day to come!
Compare your mindset to your physical feelings. This is a great way to examine how toxic thoughts are truly making you feel.
As a mompreneur, there will be times when things don’t go according to plan; it’s important not to beat yourself up for every little thing.
Now that you’ve spent some time being reflective, it’s time to focus on changing negative patterns and encouraging positive ones. Start by reacting to each negative thought with something positive.
Connect with your why
Behind it, all, always come back to your “why” of what you are doing.
Those emails may be tedious, but it’s worth it to run a successful business that supports your family!
When you get stuck in the weeds, take a step back and remind yourself of your long-term goals. This will help propel you forward and stay focused on the end result. Also focus on the successes, no matter how small they may seem at the time each one is taking you closer to achieving your goal.
