How to Overcome Scarcity Thinking in Motherhood

Do you ever find yourself feeling like there is not enough time, money, or energy to go around? Do you worry that you are not doing enough for your family or that you will never achieve your to-do list, much less your goals? If so, you may be struggling with scarcity thinking, which can hold you back from living a fulfilling life as a mother.

But what if you could shift your mindset from scarcity to abundance? Imagine feeling confident in your ability to prioritize your own needs and goals without feeling guilty. Imagine feeling empowered to make choices that align with your values and bring you joy. It’s possible, and it starts with changing your mindset.

Here are some tips for creating a mindset of abundance:

  1. Focus on what you have, not what you lack. Instead of dwelling on what you don’t have, practice gratitude for what you do have in your life. This can be as simple as taking a few moments each day to reflect on the things you are thankful for. If this is hard for you, start where you are: “I am thankful for everything I have overcome.”
  2. Embrace abundance as a mindset, not a destination. Abundance is not just about having more material possessions or achieving a certain level of success. It’s about adopting a mindset of abundance in all areas of your life, including your relationships, health, and well-being. This shows up in such thoughts as “Even though I am imperfect, I am enough as I am.”
  3. Prioritize self-care. Taking care of yourself is not selfish; it’s essential for your well-being and the well-being of your family. Make time for activities that bring you joy and recharge your batteries, whether it’s a walk, a yoga class, or reading a book. Remember though, real self-care is about your values, how you feel about yourself, and the boundaries you create to hold space for yourself. 
  4. Practice mindfulness. Mindfulness can help you stay present in the moment and reduce stress and anxiety. Try incorporating mindfulness practices into your daily routine, such as meditation or deep breathing exercises.
  5. Surround yourself with positive influences. Seek out supportive friends and family members who encourage you to pursue your well-being and lift you up when you’re feeling down. Avoid negative influences that drain your energy or make you feel bad about yourself.

By adopting a mindset of abundance, you can overcome scarcity thinking and live a fulfilling life as a mother. Remember, it’s never too late to start making changes and prioritizing your own needs and goals. Give yourself permission to thrive and see what amazing things you can achieve!
