The Loneliness Behind Motherhood
When it comes to motherhood loneliness has to be one of the most relatable topics, however one of the least discussed subjects. The constant cycle of feeding, changing, tidying and washing (not to mention everything else in between) can begin to resemble something quite similar to Ground Hog day on steroids. Hold tight mama's. Understand that you are not alone on this journey and many are facing the same feelings too. So let's fight the stigma attached to loneliness and help one another
1. A smile and a "hello" mean so much.
We are challenging you mama's to be bold and talk to all the mama's you meet, whether it be at baby groups, in the supermarket or on that brisk walk. Get talking, sharing and laughing with some other like minded mama's.
2. Pick up the phone
Routine can set in so much that it is is so easy to lose contact with people. The world is also so fast paced that messages and emails can be missed. Let's take it back and actually 'pick up the phone'. Call that friend you haven't spoken to in over a month because your plans to get together keep falling flat, after all a phone call is better than no contact at all.
3. Plan a group meet up
Getting to gather with a group of mama's can be so much fun. With so many different age groups of children, parenting techniques and tips there can be so much to learn. It's also sometimes a lot easier to plan a group meet up, because we feel more compelled and committed to attending. Check out the amazing Mush Mums app that allows you to meet up with other local mothers for playdates or a simple coffee. It's a fab way to meet new people and who know's you may find a new mama bestie.
