I have a lovely home. I am a working mom. My husband works all day and we have three lovely kids to take care of. My husband has proposed hiring a person to stay at home with us and help us with the cleaning. I mean, there are few things that I would love more than coming home from work to a clean house. But with three boys wrecking havoc, this is just a dream.
On the other hand, I feel I would be very uncomfortable having a stranger at home all day, sleeping under my roof and eating at my table. So, it is pretty hectic.
I probably can count them with the fingers on my hand, but I can recall times in which I was so stressed that I yelled at my kids. Yes, I know we have all been there but I still felt terrible about it.
Then I started to go to the gym. Somehow, I managed to make time for myself and go work out. Now, I saw that some of the gym-goers had personal trainers to help them. So I felt the need to get myself one. I thought it would help me aim towards a goal. But surprisingly, it helped me way more than that.
Now, on the title I state how this personal training helped me become a better mom. Crazy, right? But it did and I am pretty sure it can do the same to you.
A personal trainer taught me about being disciplined in working out. Just like you, there were times in which I felt like quitting. But my personal trainer took at his job to keep me motivated. I passed this on to my kids and helped them stay motivated at what they do. My eldest son was having issues with Math in school. I remember passing on the same pep talk my trainer gave to me.
Not only did my personal trainer help me set a goal, but it also helped me do the same with my kids. I explained to them how those who set themselves goals are more likely to succeed.
Knowing that you are aiming towards a goal and working hard to get there creates this sense of satisfaction in you. This helped me stay with a smile on my face. It changed my persona and attitude, even towards the mess that my home was sometimes. I felt that I was more cheerful and understanding of my kids. It even improved my life with my husband.
So I will strongly recommend that, if you are a mom, get yourself into the healthy structure of having a personal coach guide you through your fitness endeavors. You will not regret it. Not only I feel I am a better mom, but also a better person. There is this sense of fullness that I can hardly find words to explain. Now, you go and give it a try.
