It can sometimes be easy to get wrapped up in the mundane and stressful life moments.

It’s so important to realize that even when things get overwhelming as a new mom, you can still find enjoyment in every day.

How to find fun every day as a new mom

Love being a mom

Make traveling a fun experience. Laugh when things don’t go as planned when traveling.   You might be that mom who holds up the line at security or whose baby cries during flight.  Realize that a lot of parents went through the same things.

Cherish quiet moments together.  Use this time as mini meditations as we all know being a mom you don’t always get quiet time.

Start your day off right.  Look at each sunrise as a new day full of new opportunities to do better.

Be excited to greet every day as a new opportunity to grow. Experience something new. Learn something new.

Plan your day but be flexible when it falls apart.

When in doubt… take a selfie. Selfies always make life fun 😉

Or get yourself a really cool raft.

Don’t miss every moment.  Try to find time throughout the day to take a second to take a mental picture of what’s currently happening in your life. When you find spit up all over your new shirt or you just put on a new diaper to have seconds later a poo diaper, count those moments as special mommy memories.

Be confident in yourself as a new mom.  Let’s face it, being a mom is one of the hardest jobs. You’re always wondering if you are doing a good job or not.  Realize you are. Tell yourself you got this.

Fill your day with fun activities to do with your kids. Help them to see learning and trying new things as fun and exciting. Even if they get frustrated at first help guide them to be successful.

Create days for family fun.  Create a list of things you can do together as a family.

Make sure to invest in yourself.  Finding ways to improve yourself is important in being a better mom for your kids.

Take time to share your growth you gain to help better the lives of others.

End each day with a grateful heart. Write down at least 5 things you are grateful for before going to bed. You’ll be amazed how this can help you see all the fun and enjoyment you have in your life.

Most of all don’t forget to love yourself.

Love your body. Take care of it. Fuel it right. Move it.

Remember we all had to start at the beginning.

Every mom was once a new mom.

I wish you the best moving forward at being a mom.

  1. These are great thoughts for any mom. I’ve got a 4 & 7 year old and these are good reminders. Thanks! Love your vacation pics too.
