Confidence is an important trait to have as a mom. Confidence will give you that extra energy to deal with the stress and challenges that come with taking care of the family, especially children; they can be very challenging at times. By remaining calm, your children will also be calmer and you’ll find handling the situation a lot easier to do.
Confidence is something you can build. More importantly, it is something you can decide to have, even under the most difficult situations. Follow these simple tips and you’ll be a more confident mom before you know it.
The famous advice, “fake it ‘till you make it,” is actually a good advice to follow in this case. Just be confident. Act like you are the best mom in the world – a professional in taking care of the children – and you’ll keep every situation in control effortlessly.
It’s not difficult to act confident. You can start by using a lower tone and reducing your speed when talking, especially when communicating with the children. If you face difficulties, take a deep breath and regroup. You can do it; you always can.
It is also worth noting that you have all the support you need. The pediatrician you’re seeing can help you answer any question you have. The next time you receive bad advice from someone else, simply smile and confirm it with your kids’ doctor later.
It may seem counterproductive at first, but squeezing a 30-minute exercise into the daily routine is actually a great way to boost confidence. I know, I know; being a mom can be tiring already. The exercise doesn’t have to be something difficult or heavy at all. A quick walk around the neighborhood or a jog if you fancy one is more than enough. Swimming works really well, too.
The key here is doing it regularly. Just do it. The regularity adds pattern to your days, making them appear more ‘normal’ and less chaotic. Before long, you’ll also start noticing a boost in stamina and energy. Combined with a healthy diet, regular light exercise can help develop a strong sense of self-confidence required to be the supermom you know you can be.
Makeovers are not just trends that are now popular among celebrities. It is simply a way to feel better through makeup, fashion, and even some treatments. Getting a haircut and refreshing your fashion arsenal work really well in helping you look beautiful.
Some treatments are also good for your body. Los Angeles Vaginoplasty from a reputable OB/GYN such as David Ghozland, M.D., as well as similar treatments, is popular for all the right reasons. They help improve parts of your body. As your partner notices the changes, his compliments will also act as great boosters for your confidence.
There are still many other ways you can boost your confidence as a mom. What’s important is that you get started, simply because high levels of self-confidence can – and will – help you perform better as a mom.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
