Over the last 10 years of my working life I have noticed some tricks and habits that happy working mums do differently to people who struggle to get everything to work. If you are a happy and successful working mum then life at work and at home feels good and easy. You have a lovely sense of connection with your other half and kiddos as well as the thrill of professional achievement. If you are unhappy at home or at work then you are stressed out all the time. You feel guilty at work and guilty at home. And you have little time for romance. And no time for yourself.
"Allowing yourself to be a happy working mum is so important because when you get this right, you can create the life you want, the life that's best for you and your family"
Ok, so let's crack on! Here are 5 Things Happy Working Mums Do Differently. Start doing these things yourself to create a life you adore.
1. HAPPY WORKING MUMS TAKE TIME TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THEY WANT
They know and understand that before you can CREATE the beautiful life you want you have to FIGURE OUT what it is that you want! And this is about what YOU want for yourself and your family. Not what other people want or what you think you should want.
2. HAPPY WORKING MUMS TAKE REALLY GOOD CARE OF THEMSELVES
They do this in lots of little ways like nourishing their bodies with NUTRITIOUS food and drinking lots of WATER. They take time to RELAX and RECHARGE, like 10 minutes a day to meditate. They do things that light them up. They are KIND TO THEMSELVES.
3. HAPPY WORKING MUMS CREATE MAGICAL MOMENTS WITH THEIR FAMILY
They look for ways to BRING FUN AND JOY to everyday routines, working with however much time they have. They ASK FOR HELP when they need it. They plan fun meals - breakfasts inspired by different countries, family pizza night. WHATEVER WORKS. They spend time alone with their kids, with no phones or devices to distract them. They tell their children how much they love them and give them LOADS OF CUDDLES.

4. HAPPY WORKING MUMS ARE CONNECTED INTO THEIR ROMANTIC SELF
They PUT ENERGY into their romantic life because it MAKES THEM FEEL GOOD. They are intimate with their other half in WAYS THAT WORK FOR THEM. They tell their other half what they love about them. They are brave enough to ASK FOR WHAT THEY WANT.
5. HAPPY WORKING MUMS DEFINE WHAT SUCCESS AT WORK MEANS FOR THEM
Maybe it means BEING THE BOSS, or BEING APPRECIATED, or BEING PAID LOTS. They know what they want to get out of work and they take little steps every day to make that happen. They know when to stick around and when to make a change. They have a great network and spending time with people in their NETWORK is energising and creates FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITIES.
