10 Habits of Effective Stay-at-Home Moms

Stay-at-home moms too have to make lot of compromises and sacrifices when it comes to taking care of children and family member. Therefore, it is essential for moms to follow some healthy habits so that they can manage everything perfectly. Let us take a look at the 10 habits of effective stay-at-home moms.

Even though the thought of being a stay-at-home mom seems like a walk in the park, it is not as easy as it sounds. As home makers, they make houses a home and take care of the family and the kids. Even if they do not have the responsibilities of putting food on the table and making house payments on their shoulders, they make sure that every necessity and of the family members ore fulfilled.

If you are a stay-at-home mom, then you must know that the responsibilities are no less than the bread-winner of the family. Here are 10 habits that you can inculcate to become an efficient stay-at-home-mom.

Teaching kids to Play Independently

Staying at home does not mean that you will be the only means of entertainment for your kids. Teaching them the importance of independent play will not only be beneficial for your child but also enable you to chalk out some time for yourself.

Dealing with Chaos Calmly

If you have kids, there is bound to be chaos. Sometimes it can be unsettling with all the pressure but maintaining a calm composure and mind and learning to live with all the mess will be easier, sometimes even fun once in a while.

Seeking Support

Being a mom sure is wonderful but sometimes is pressurising. To deal with the pressure, you can seek support from like-minded mothers or moms who are in the same position you are in. Joining a mom’s club is also a great idea to meet such people.

Having Supplies

Having a kid means keeping yourself over-prepared because anything can happen. Keeping your house stocked with all kinds of supplies like cleaning kits, medical supplies, craft items and even food is a good idea.

Keeping Yourself Hydrated

Stay-at-home moms have a lot of responsibilities to take care of such as taking care of the kids, making meals, cleaning the house, laundry and the like. Keeping yourself hydrated is of utmost importance. Drink loads of water every day with an occasional cup of coffee or tea or a glass of milk or juice.


It is common to gain weight after childbirth. If you are a stay-at-home mom, finding time for yourself to exercise will not only help you lose those extra pounds that you gained, but also keep you healthy.

Taking Time for Yourself

Home makers have a lot on their shoulders. They put their loved ones before anything or anybody else including themselves. But carving out some “me time” is the most important habit to be a good stay-at-home mom. Read a book, go shopping, get a mani-pedi or a haircut, watch T.V and do what makes you happy at this time.

Join a Group or a Class

Just because you are a stay-at-home mom, does not mean you have no social life. There are several groups, classes or extracurricular activities you can join. This will enable you to socialise and make new friends.

Being Prepared

It might sound silly, being prepared for the day, if you are a stay-at-home mom, but ask yourself. Why not? It will make you feel better.

Not to Take Everything Seriously

When you are raising your kid, it is important to raise them right. But taking everything seriously can end up making your child self-critical. If your child makes a silly mistake, laugh it off together about how silly it is and if they fall, do not scold them for not being careful. Pick them up and dust them off instead.

Being a home maker comes with its challenges. Bringing up the kids and taking care of a family, making the house a home, is not easy. Taking care and finding time for yourself is of innate importance to be an effective stay-at-home mom.

What kind of healthy habits should stay-at-home moms follow? How can stay-at-home moms find some “me-time”? Why is it important for stay-at-home moms to take care of themselves as well? Discuss here.
