Being everything everyone expects you to be can be tiring because you feel like you cannot take a break from all of the responsibilities that are coming your way. We understand. We suggest that you take care of yourself in order to have the right mindset to take care of others.

If you do not take care of your own person, there is no one else in the world that would do that. You know yourself the most so take care of your needs and we guarantee that you will be a better mom and wife. Nonetheless, because you have a family and are married, you mustn’t ignore your responsibilities. Your husband wants you to be a good wife and your children need you to be a good mother. This article will give you advice on how to be those things. However, these are just simple tips, we do not guarantee that you will wake up tomorrow fresh, everything folded and put away and dinner will be done in time. They are just here to help you.

How to be a better mother

No one really teaches you how to be a good mother before you have a child, you just do your best and hope it works. Below are few guidelines which are set to make you the mother you aspire to be:

Do not compare

By saying this we actually refer to not compare yourself to other mothers or your kids to other little humans. Your kids need you, and by you, we really do mean you. Your flaws, your patience, your personality and your skills. Do not compare yourself with the mom on Instagram who has a spotless kitchen and packs lunch every day with little dinosaur sandwiches. As well as, do not compare your children between them or the neighbour’s kids. They will make mistakes and not listen to you because it’s natural for them to be that way. You may have noticed that each one has their own personality and their own craziness or calm. It may be the case that you may believe that your neighbour’s child is calm and collected, but are you certain that the child is happy? The grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

Do not have high expectations

Do not expect perfections because you allow room for disappointment. Life does not have to be perfect in order to be beautiful. Perfection is in the eye of the beholder so your perfect may be different from your kid’s perfect. Expect people to do things best of their abilities. If there is room for improvement, they will learn from their mistakes and do better next time. Your children are constantly in the process of learning so mistakes are inevitable.

Celebrate little things

Little things do really matter. If you think about your memories you will notice that all the little stories and moments are the best memories. They make you, you. Celebrating a new drawing or a new skill your kid can do have positive effects on them. You teach them that new achievements are awarded. This way you are lightening the mood and atmosphere in your family. Let them add extra cheese to the macaroni, let them stay up 10 minutes more past their bedtime. Be happy that they are playing and leaving their toys all around the house, it means that they are widening their imaginations. The better their imagination is, the better the childhood.

How to be a better wife

Now, let’s discuss how to be the wife your husband wants you to be. It’s actually easier than you imagine because they really do not ask for much. Below are few tips you can use to better yourself:

Give him some attention

You two are adults and he will definitely understand that he doesn’t get as much attention as before. Nonetheless, this does not mean you shouldn’t ask how his day was. Let him unwind and talk to you, let him moan and tell you whatever he feels and worries about. They also need someone that listens. Let him relax because we all know how stressful work can be. You do not have to give him all of your attention, some time during the day or before bed is enough.

Be happy

You may be aware that when someone has a bad day, it can affect your mood as well. We do not mean that you should walk around with a smile on your face all the time. Just be grateful and positive. Understand that there are people who pray for the life and the things you have. If you are happy, you will emit this positive aura to your kids and husband. It will be a pleasure for your husband to come home when he knows he has someone home that is not moaning and sad every single day.

Let go of expectations

Do not expect the world and the moon from your husband. He is doing the best he can to be a good husband and father. No one has taught him how to be those things either. The less you expect from him, the happier you will be.

There are other things which you can do in order to be both things at the same time. You should take care of your home and things in your home. We all know that sleep is important for kids and adults. Therefore, you should look into purchasing bamboo bedding, toppers, sheets and pillows. This is because they provide the best comfort. Fabrics that are made out of bamboo are hypoallergenic and have antibacterial properties. They ensure a good night sleep because of their softness and high comfort.

To wrap it up

Being a good mother and wife is important because it ensures peace in the family. You do not have to be perfect, be you because your kids need a good mother and your husbands want the wife he imagines you to be.
