Ask any mom about her daily activities and you’ll hear about all sorts of things. From sleepless nights and aching breasts to the unsung joy of taking a long shower in peace, today’s moms have it all covered. They raise their kids while staying feminine and attractive, they aren’t afraid to ask for advice and they aren’t ashamed of being as happy when their little one finally poops as they are when the baby smiles or does something silly. You don’t believe it? Just check their Instagram account and see for yourself. Here are some of the things modern moms do daily in order to stay on top of things.
Working on their fitness
Looking good and losing weight after giving birth is just one of the things moms want to achieve by working out. In reality, they know how important staying fit is for their health, and the healthier the mom is, the healthier her child will be. Modern moms adjust their busy schedules. They don’t mind waking up before dawn to do some yoga while everybody else is asleep, but they also don’t hesitate using their children as weights when they want to exercise, but there’s no babysitter in sight. Finally, using a jogging stroller to run with their baby is also something they’d go to if necessary.
Making healthy meals
Another way moms keep their weight in order while staying healthy is by carefully choosing what they eat. Instead of getting everything at the supermarket, today’s moms know that farmers’ markets offer much better food options, often organic and home-grown. They cook their meals from scratch whenever they have the time. They are aware that what they eat matters, especially if they’re still breastfeeding, but they also know that buying fresh ingredients and cooking their baby’s food beats any meal in a jar they can buy for their nestlings. Besides, if moms create good habits, their children will accept it as something normal as they grow up and maintain those same good habits themselves.
Focusing on their kids’ education
A twenty-first century mom knows that education is crucial for their kids’ future, so they make sure their cherubs get into the best kindergartens, and then the best schools, so that they can one day have more college opportunities and become successful people. They’re involved in everything their child does. They keep track of all the homework and upcoming tests, they are always ready to sit down and help their child with their school projects, but they’re also aware of their boundaries. These moms will know exactly when it’s time to find a private tutor for their kids to improve their academic success from the earliest of age. A modern mom will make it her mission to make studying fun and easy for her child and she’ll always find a creative and effective way to do it.
Turning to online resources
Phone apps, websites and social media aren’t just a pastime for modern moms, but valuable resources for improving their skills. It’s where they find out if other moms have same issues as they do, it’s where they find recipes and ideas for healthy meals, and it’s where they search for tutorials and advice to help them do anything from making toys for their kids to safely removing object from their little ones’ noses. Moms today realize the importance of empowering and supporting each other, so they use the internet to connect with other moms and together find solutions to the most incredible problems they come across daily. And if, while doing all of that, they can be active on social media and keep in touch with their friends and relatives that way, modern moms will fully embrace technology and all its perks. Anyway, what better way to show those cute baby pics to everybody?
Valuing the importance of self-care
Today’s moms are much more than just moms. They’re entrepreneurs, they’re powerful, they’re fashionable and beautiful and capable of tackling any task that comes their way. So, in order to achieve all of this, they know they have to take as good care of themselves as they do their family. They will rely on their partners, parents and friends to jump in and help with the kids when they need some time to tend to themselves. They will visit spas and beauty parlors, buy nice clothes and quality cosmetic products. Moms today aren’t shy to share their problems, thoughts and worries, knowing that their good mental health means that they can dedicate themselves more to their children and other loved ones. So, by taking care of themselves, they will improve their ability to take care of others.
If you think all these things mean that being a modern mom is easy, think twice. It’s just that they do such a good job, that most of the time it all seems so simple. So, cheers to all the hard-working, dedicated and loving modern moms out there. Keep up the good work!
