Handling Chaos As A Stay At Home Mom

Updated: Aug 17, 2020

Do you feel like life is a Chaotic mess especially now that your kids are home from school full-time?


I know I have and many other women that I have talked to agree, this is a unique time and there is a lot of fear that can create chaos in our lives right now.


So to help, I thought I would do a little research for you and me to figure out how to best handle this chaotic time sanely as possible.


To help I found this Podcast by Brooke Castillo who is a Life Coach and found her Handling Chaos series useful towards being a SAHM and suddenly having to home school.


How to Handle Chaos?


During this time, it is very important to understand how to handle the chaos in that is happening in the world and how to internalize it so that we not showing up anxious or panicking with our kids.


One main point I got from listening to her podcast was that the anxiety and panic that we feel is not from the facts of the media, its how our own thoughts interpret the facts found in the media.


So she had a three steps that you can take in order to calm your thoughts.


1) Stop And Recognize Your Thoughts


So many times as a stay at home mom, we often find that we don't have a lot time to ourselves and now that the kids are home full-time, it's doubly so.


For example, if you get frustrated with something (like my kids fighting over the same ball... deep breathe), make sure to realize that you are frustrated, recognize it, give it a moment and live out, and then breathe.


2) Reach Out To A Friend


You are not in this alone!


We may be told that have practice "Social Distancing" right now, but that doesn't mean you can't call, FaceTime, or even do a Google Hangout with a few of your closest friends to talk about whats going on.


One thing that has really helped me not feel so isolated has been a group chat that is with all the neighborhood woman.
