From managing a household to taking care of children and a husband, and for some even working a full-time job; the responsibilities that come with being a mother can seem overbearing. It’s important that despite these challenges, mums don’t compromise their own health and well-being - after all, you can only be the best mother to your children when you are your best! 

The good news is that there are ways to receive the support you need to cope with the whirlwind of emotions that come along with being a mother, and engaging a Life Coach is one of them. 

Read on as Wholistic Flow Life Coach (and mother of four), Coralie, shares 4 ways that life coaching can support women through the mental and emotional challenges of motherhood. 

1. Guides you to explore and discover new tools and techniques to overcome mental and emotional challenges

As a mother, you are a pillar of support for your family, and for that, you deserve support too. Often, moms feel the need to do it all, and they lack the support system needed (or delay asking for help until they are on the verge of a breakdown) to overcome the daily challenges of motherhood which can quickly become overwhelming.

A life coach supports you by listening and providing you with effective tools and techniques to process and shift your mental and emotional states. Coralie personally uses EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) as a tool to help mothers process their thoughts and emotions more positively so they are better able to nurture and support their families, while also becoming happier and more fulfilled!

2. Helps you manage your thoughts and emotions better

If you are constantly stressed, frustrated, upset and exhausted, you won’t be doing much good for yourself or those around you. Your emotions can trickle down to your children and your husband, so knowing how to process and release negativity is important. 

A life coach helps you bring awareness to your thoughts and feelings, while reframing them and shifting your mindset positively. This way, you can process negative thoughts and emotions in a much more healthy and positive way, and release them rather than suppress them.

3. Uncovers, releases and changes limiting beliefs that aren’t serving you

We are all shaped by beliefs that were programmed during our childhood by our parents, the schools we went to, as well as the culture, society, and media that we were exposed to. For example, growing up in certain cultures where self-sacrifice is strongly expected of mothers may cause women to feel selfish or even guilty for wanting to prioritise their own needs and wants. Mothers with this limiting belief tend to neglect self-care which often results in unhappiness, overwhelm and other imbalances in their well-being. 

The example above shows that our beliefs have the ability to consciously or unconsciously affect  us in our roles as mothers and wives by holding us back in different ways. A life coach helps you uncover, release and change these core limiting beliefs, so that you can get on the path of becoming the woman or mother you truly want to be. 

4. Inspires you to take actions to become a happier and better mother 

Mothers are hardwired to do everything in their control to ensure the happiness and well-being of their own family. They prioritise the needs and wants of their families over their own, and as a result everyone is well taken care of - except themselves!

The regular practice of self-care is crucial for anyone’s well-being regardless of whether they are a mother or not. As a result of self-neglect, along with the constant demands of motherhood and life in general, moms tend to experience high levels of stress, a lack of patience, anxiety, and overwhelm, not realising that a simple shift of adding a regular self-care routine (even just 10-15 minutes a day) can have a huge impact on their mental and emotional well-being. A life coach inspires you to take necessary actions to work towards your own well-being goals, ultimately empowering you from within.
