Good SAHM Habits to Embrace

Habits, those little things that we do and don't even realize we are doing them. We all have habits, I like to think that I, as well as most people, have a more good habits than bad. Some of my personal good habits include waking up before my daughter, preparing breakfast daily, and using a planner to plan our days. 
Good habits are necessary for all moms especially stay at home moms. It's so easy for us to fall into bad habits, I wrote about a few HERE. I wanted to share a few habits that are good to embrace whether you are a stay at home mom or not.

Planning playdates - One of my best SAHM habits is planning playdates and meetups with other moms! I adore getting together with my mom friends, it makes everyday mom life seem less mundane. Most of the mom friends that I have, I met them at a meetup or just struck up a conversation at the playground. I have even met mom friends through Facebook groups. Usually I will text my friends a few days in advance about getting together or I'll even plan larger meetups through Facebook groups.  I like to keep playdates simple, by meeting at a playground, the library, splash pad, or every now and then, at someone's home. A planner is a good way to keep track of your playdates. Playdates are fun, not just for the children, but for the moms as well.

Doing Crafts -  Amazon Target dollar spot and the Dollar Tree are my BFFs when it comes to crafts. Crafts can make a long rainy day at home bearable lol. I like to keep art supplies on hand like paper, crayons, paint, and sidewalk chalk. But for special projects, I'll head to the store to pick up what I need. Ava likes to paint and draw. One of her favorite toys is her easel. Sometimes, we will head to a local art museum to do crafts.

Daily reading - Reading is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your child. We set a small goal to read at least 5 books a day. Reading helps with brain development, is wonderful for bonding, and what child doesn't love reading! I like to read for myself at night before bed. Sometimes I'll read when I wake up in the morning. I prefer an audio book if I am reading in the morning. I also set a goal for myself of reading 1 book a month.

We are all striving to be the best mom that we can be to our children. I like to think that these few good habits make me feel like super mom. What are some of your good mom habits? Let me know in the comments! Until next time.
