10 Tips for Single Mothers

June 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 138

In this article I am going to present some tips for all single mothers to make their life less hectic and better managed.

1. Set Your Priorities: Pick out the top five most important things from your life such as taking care of your children, focusing on your job, dating, managing relationships with family and friends, handling stress, taking care of your own health, setting visitation timings for the father or getting child support from him. Setting priorities help you focus and move towards your goals.

2. Get Focused on Your Goal: Setting goals can be a very fruitful activity because they help you keep on track. Your goal will keep your mind busy so that you don't end up in the never-ending swirl of 'what if's'.

3. Reflect and Learn: Think about your past in an effective way. Do not try to put the blame on anybody else and think about how you played a role in your divorce or ending of your relationship with your boyfriend. Then identify your mistakes and learn from them.

4. Seek Support: Do not try to act like you can handle it yourself. No one can. Seek support from family members who will understand your situation and remind you that you are not alone in this. Also, you can join support groups for single mothers.

5. Bond With Your Children: Try to involve yourself in fun activities with your children. Go to amusement parks or movies with them or surprise them with a classy dinner.

6. Meditate: Take out time to exercise yoga or pray because these things are important for soul rejuvenation.

7. Think of Your Child's Future: Whenever you feel like you cannot carry on, rouse that motherly spirit inside you and tell yourself you have to live and work so that your child can get a good life.

8. Let Go of Unyielding Strategies: Do not be persistent to the extent of being rigid. If something is not working for you, just let it go and try something else.

9. Revitalize and Regain Confidence In Yourself: Try to involve in social activities which help you revitalize e.g. go on a shopping spree with your friends. Also, try making changes to the setting of your house to induce a fresh feeling.

10. Find Your Strengths and Weaknesses: Once you are able to positively identify your strengths and weaknesses, hold onto your strengths and try to fight your weaknesses.
