5 Tips for new mums and working from home

I became a new mum in April this year to a beautiful boy we named Lyrik. I have been loving every single moment of motherhood, but I think I can say that because of the support I have around me and being blessed with a realllllly good baby. Balancing the responsibilities of being a new mum and working from home can be challenging, but with the right strategies, I’ve been able to get into habit of a routine that supports both my career and my role as a parent. Don’t get me wrong, some days are easier than others, but I’ve gathered some tips for other new mums to help you navigate this exciting yet demanding phase of life. 

1. Establish a Flexible Schedule

Create a flexible work schedule that accommodates your baby’s needs. Take advantage of nap times, early mornings, and late evenings to focus on tasks requiring your full attention. Be prepared to adjust your schedule as your baby’s routine evolves.

2. Prioritise and Set Realistic Goals

Determine your most important work tasks and prioritise them. Set achievable goals for each day to avoid feeling overwhelmed. Recognise that your productivity may vary, and it’s okay to adjust your expectations during this transitional period.

3. Practice Time Blocking

Divide your day into focused blocks of time for work, baby care, self-care, and household tasks. This approach can help you allocate your time effectively and prevent multitasking, leading to higher productivity and reduced stress.

4. Take Breaks

Incorporate regular breaks into your schedule to recharge and spend quality time with your baby. Short breaks can improve your concentration and overall well-being.

5. Be Kind to Yourself

Remember that finding the right balance takes time. Don’t be too hard on yourself if things don’t always go as planned. Adapt and adjust your routine as needed, and celebrate your accomplishments, no matter how small they may seem.

Remember that you’re not alone, and many other mums have faced similar challenges and found ways to thrive in both roles. You got this girl.
