Parenting is one of the most rewarding decisions we can make in our lives. It can also be the most demanding and exhausting one ending up in mommy burnout. Often, this condition occurs gradually, with the addition of thousands of moments when loving mothers disregard their mental, emotional, and physical signals of trouble and continue to push through daily life and responsibilities. Mommy burnout doesn’t usually happen in a vacuum due to the parenting demands alone. Other contributing factors may be current life stressors, working excessively, isolation, and being without family and friends’ support. Unfortunately, one day it all becomes too much.

Symptoms of mommy burnout may result in:

  • Poor self-care
  • Irritability
  • Lack of patience with the kids and others
  • Crying spells
  • Feeling guilty about parenting style
  • Difficulties in falling asleep or staying asleep
  • Difficulties concentrating
  • Lacking energy
  • Double guessing parenting decisions
  • Physical aches and pains
  • Feeling overwhelmed with responsibilities
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Isolation
  • Avoiding and craving social support
  • Feeling out of sort
  • Forgetfulness
  • Feeling exhausted most of the time
  • Constantly comparing negatively with other parents in real life and those seen on social media.
