you are one of those stay-at-home moms then at one point of
time you are bound to feel bored, depressed, stressed and
lonely. Sitting at home is bound to make you feel bored. Finishing
your daily chores will consume only a few hours. Then what
to do the rest of the day is a major problem. We have brought
for you a few suggestions that will help you keep yourself
busy and occupied.
Go where other stay-at-home moms
might be. Go to a park where you will find other mom's with
their kids. Start a conversation with them. Discuss your problems
with them and this way you will get to make friends.
Date Your Partner
One the most important relationship
that suffers after the birth of a child is your relationship
with your husband. You give so much preference to your child
that you completely forget about your needs and your husband's
needs. Take some time each day, if only for a few minutes,
to talk with and listen to your partner. Set aside at least
one evening per week for a date. Try to take one vacation
per year without the kids. Find competent, quality babysitters
for children of various ages.
Keep Your Identity
One thing that often gets lost after
marriage and pregnancy is your identity. You get so much involved
with your baby that you forget that you had an identity. Losing
your identity is also a very frustrating aspect and that feeling
also creates frustration in life. So try to get back to your
work and life. Even if late nights is out of the question
but try to make it to an evening party atleast and let your
husband take care of the kids once in a while. If you miss
the hubbub of a steady schedule of meetings and client lunches,
create one. Volunteer for a charity you always admired but
couldn't work for because you were too busy at the office.
