Embracing Childlike Joy into your Motherhood Journey

Motherhood can be a beautiful and fulfilling journey, filled with precious moments and unbreakable bonds. However, it can also be demanding and overwhelming, leaving you feeling drained and in need of rejuvenation. As parents, we often strive to make our children happy, but what if we could take a cue from our little ones and rediscover the simple joys that make life magical? Wouldn't it be great that as a mother you can incorporate joy from a child's perspective into your daily routine, revitalising your spirit and creating unforgettable memories with your family? Here's how...

Be Present in the Moment

Children have an innate ability to be fully present in the moment. They immerse themselves in play, their surroundings, and interactions without worries of the past or future. As a mother, this can be hard, but take a break from distractions and embrace the present by putting your phone down, worrying about the to-do list later and engage in playful activities with your child, listen to their stories with undivided attention, and savour the little things that bring happiness to their faces. This practice not only fosters a deeper connection with your child but also reminds you of the beauty of simple play.

Cultivate a Sense of Wonder

Children are naturally curious and find wonder in the smallest of things. As you go about your daily routine, take a moment to appreciate the marvels around you. Observe nature's beauty, marvel at the changing colors of the sky, or witness the joy in your child's eyes as they explore the world. Embrace this childlike wonder and let it fill your heart with gratitude and joy. This is another form of gratitude practice which is highly beneficial at raising your vibration and gratitude for all that you DO have.

Embrace Playfulness

Play is an essential part of a child's life, and it should be a part of yours too. Let go of your inhibitions and join your child in their imaginative play. Whether it's building a fort, playing dress-up, or having a dance party, engaging in play with your child not only sparks joy but also strengthens your bond.

Find Joy in Learning Together

Children are constantly learning and discovering new things. Tap into their enthusiasm for learning by exploring new activities or interests together. Whether it's painting, baking, or trying out a new sport, learning with your child not only fosters joy but also shows them the value of curiosity and lifelong learning, teaching them valuable skills that can take with them as they grow up.

Create Traditions and Rituals

Children thrive on routine and rituals, as they provide a sense of stability and comfort. Incorporate joyful traditions into your family's daily, weekly, or yearly routines. It could be a movie night every Friday, Sunday morning pancakes, or celebrating certain holidays with unique family traditions. These moments create lasting memories and strengthen your family bond. Our family faves are swimming on Sundays and tenpin bowling every second Friday, these foster traditions that the kids can look forward to.

Laugh Often

Children find humour in the simplest of things, and their infectious laughter can lift spirits instantly. Make it a point to find humour in everyday situations, share jokes with your child, and create an atmosphere of laughter at home. Laughter not only reduces stress but also creates a positive and joyful environment for the whole family. Take a moment and have silly moments with your kids, I guarantee you'll feel lighter and any stress or worries would've melted away.

Incorporating joy from a child's perspective into your life as a mother can be a transformative experience. By being present, embracing wonder, playing, learning together, creating traditions, and sharing laughter, you'll not only infuse joy into your life but also nurture a deeper connection with your child. So, take a step back, see the world through your child's eyes, and let the magic of joy guide your way to a happier you.
