It’s never easy being a mom, let alone be a working mom. If you are one of those mothers who’s having a hard time balancing work and career, this is for you:

Stop Comparing Yourself To Other Moms

The first thing that you should do is to stop comparing yourself to other moms who can be with their child 24/7. Every mom has different things to do, and it just happened that you need to work for your family. Comparing yourself to other parents will only make you feel guilty, which can affect you as a mother and a professional.

Say “No” to Work Often

Don’t agree if your boss wants you to take overtime and even attend meetings on your day off. You’re a mother now, and you have someone who’s waiting for you to come home. Also, try to say no for special projects that can affect your schedule. This is especially true if there’s someone who can do that besides you.

Prioritize Important School Gathering

Always choose school parents meetings over work. Attend special occasions at school to show to your child that you are making time and balancing work and motherhood. For sure, your kid will appreciate your effort.

It’s not easy to be a working mom, but it doesn’t have to be that difficult. With proper time management and these tips, you can be the mother you wanted to be.
