10 ways having kids can simplify your life!
Does having kids make things more complicated or does it simplify your life? Read this to find out how your kids can get you to live the simple life!
Life with kids is a constant juggling act, but at least you know what you’re juggling. The trick is to live meaningfully and mindfully, and learning to stress less.
Here are 10 reasons why having children can simplify your life.
You will make your days more structured
You will start your days earlier
Kids are the best alarm clocks. As soon as they open their eyes, they expect you to be up at about, too. Eventually as you get used to rising early, you will learn to get up before they do.
This buys you a few minutes of precious me-time before the day becomes busy.
You will learn to value sleep
Because you will now be starting your days earlier, your bedtime will also adjust. Chances are you will sleep when your kids sleep, or shortly after.
You will realise how precious sleep is, and learn to get as much of it as you possibly can.
You will learn to cook and eat healthy
All of a sudden it won’t be difficult choosing healthy meal planning over buying your favourite junk food.
Instead of calling for a pizza or a burger, you may even learn to make healthier versions of these favourites for your kids at home!
You will learn to make better life choices
With kids, the decision making process becomes clearer. You do away with reckless behaviour and rash judgements.
At the end of the day, you choose safety and security - and are definitely more careful about taking risks.
You will purge and declutter
Simplifying life goes hand in hand with simplifying your home. You will want to keep your home as organised as you can.
You will get rid of things that you no longer need or want. With things in their proper place, you will stress less over finding a toy or a book, and pack away time becomes easier, too.
You will learn to manage money better
When you were single, you could barely make $200 last you a week. But once you have kids in your life, you will learn to budget properly.
The key here is to cut down your splurging sprees on unnecessary purchases, and only buy what is needed.
You will have the perfect excuse to just stay home
You will find your focus
Once your child is born, he or she becomes your central focus. You'll find that when it comes to making decisions, you put your kids first over other things.
As a Mum, making choices is now simpler because your kids are your #1 priority.
