Secrets to being a Happy Mom during lockdown! ✨✨✨

How do you think a Mom reacts when she is tired or unhappy? She’s a ticking bomb that probably might go off on anyone and everyone and with current scenario where everyone is stuck at home, Moms tend to lose it every now and then.

I’m a Mom of two kids where one is a schooling girl and needs me during all her activities and other being an infant wants all the attention and care he can get. Trying to do it all and more gets overwhelming sometimes.

There are ways to handle all of it in a much better way and I’m sharing some tricks of mine here for all you beautiful Mamas to try!

  1. Ask for help
    Yes! This is the first and foremost stress buster. Ask for help from your husband, grandparents, friends or family. It all becomes overwhelming at certain times and all you have to say is “Please help”!
  2. Eat what you like
    A big bar of chocolate, your favourite cup of souffle or just a big slice of cheese cake. Good food sets one in a good mood.
  3. Take a power nap
    Being sleep-deprived can make anyone cranky. Nothing like a good nap. No matter the time, once the kids are taken care of, just get back to your bed. Working on getting your 8-hours sleep might work out better!
  4. Coffee/Tea
    The magic potion I call it. Nothing that a good cuppa cannot fix. Go to your favourite spot in your home with your cup and just relax.
  5. Get groovy!
    Put on some good music and dance to it with your partner. Including kids can also turn out to be fun! Play a mix of evryone’s favourites and get on the floor.
  6. Me time
    Me time is very important on a regular basis. Be it for just a cup of coffee, painting your nails or with a magazine. Just keep some time for yourself.
  7. Talk
    Talk to your partner about stuff that you can handle, that you can’t handle. What you did that day, how you did it, etc. Just talk and he will understand when he needs to step in!
  8. Special weekends.
    Movie nights or game nights turn out to be super fun. Watch kids’ favourites or put them to bed and watch your favourites. Unwind with some binge watching. For games, even the simple pin-the-tail or Uno turn out to be super engaging and fun.
  9. Quiet time
    Keep some quiet time for older kids. Engage them in some activities like reading or crafts. Playing their favourite pretend plays, etc while you put your legs up.
  10. Cuddle up
    Your little bunnies are gonna be all grown up in no time. So get your hugs and kisses while you can. Lots and lots of them and especially when something is wrong. It will work it’s magic and all the stress will disappear in no time.

A happy Mom creates a happy family and this happiness within you can come with constant efforts from yourself.

  1. Great tips for staying happy and positive during this stressful time. I agree along with family time having me time is equally important. It helps in doing other routine chores with less strees.

  2. Hey Sima, You’ve written very correctly about those things which really works for a mom. I am a mother of 2. and between them, the age gap is of just 13 months! hence raising them becomes a pretty hectic for me… However, I never ignore myself. I gift myself a chocolate bar, I sometimes eat Maggi sitting at the window… A glass of coffee gives me a bundle of energy and yes, whenever I write something I feel I am reliving myself.. it helps me destress. People often judge me a lot saying – kaisi maa ho tum, bachho ki jagah khud chocolate khaa rahi ho:.. but I simply ignore them…
