Being a supermom can be quite a task! We do so much; we prepare our kids’ baon early in the morning, we do the laundry before noon, and just when we think the day’s over, there are still some dishes to clean. There are so many types of supermoms among us, but one thing’s for sure: there’s no backing out from the busiest job in the world.
But don’t fret! Read our 5 tips to becoming a better supermom below:
1. Have a system in place
Drowning in house chores isn’t a great position to be in. Our tip: write down your plans for the day so that you have control over your time and energy. Lock down specific hours of the day for specific tasks— and stick to them! This way, you’ll be guided on what you need to do, instead of going at them blindly.
2. 100% effort = 0% Do-overs
To be efficient, it’s important to do your tasks well so that you don’t waste any time. That’s why our next tip is important: put 100% effort into what you’re doing so that you won’t have to repeat it. Use a one-touch principle; do things well the first time so that you won’t have to touch them again. Your body (and mind!) will thank you for it.
3. It’s okay to take a break
As a mom, you shouldn’t feel bad when you take a break from mommy duties! If our goal is to give 100%, we should have the energy to do it. Take little breaks within the day; watch one episode of your favorite TV show or pour out some coffee. You’ll be amazed by how much more you can finish compared to doing things in one go
4. Get someone to help out
Asking help from others doesn’t mean we’ve failed as moms. Quite the opposite; we ask for help so that we can do more. Let’s be honest: we can’t pick up our kids if we’re too busy doing laundry. We can’t look for delicious dinner recipes if we’re stuck in traffic.

5. Never forget your Ikigai
It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the amount of work we do. It gets so bad at times that we lose sight of our biggest motivations in life. That’s why our last tip is to always remind yourself of your “reason for being” or in Japanese, your Ikigai. By putting your family at the center of the picture, you’ll be inspired to do more for them.
