Motherhood Identity

Having trouble remembering when you weren’t “mummy,” or “honey"? Maybe it’s time to recapture some of your past.

A lot of motherhood stress comes from feeling that you’re no longer your own person. All your time and energy is put into your family’s needs and desires, and you lose sight of your own individuality. It’s a common trap for mums, but not a necessary one.

If you loved to paint before you had kids, then what’s stopping you now? Take time out during the day for art. If you have kids in the house, you can paint while they colour. Maybe singing was your thing. If so, then dust off your guitar and have a family sing-a-long.

Being a responsible adult doesn’t mean you have to put away your own hobbies and interests. In fact, it’s good for kids to see mum in her element.
