We all have to deal with one at one time or another super mom, and by that we mean the kind of woman who makes you want to swallow a flask of cyanide. She is the one who has a child - or even more than one - a job - maybe a high level job - a huge house - and yet she seems to have tons of time left over to devote herself to herself.

It is the one that always seems to have just come out of hairdresser, even when it arrives flawlessly to accompany the children to school at eight, the one that slips imperturbably among the thousand tasks of the day and then always carves out an hour in the evening to prepare healthy and nutritious dinners for his family and friends.






It is what ai birthdays not only appears punctual and elegant, but also with a perfect gift combined with a pan of cookies made with his own hands, the same ones he says he prepares for the charity events he regularly takes part in. How does she do it? Here are some of her secrets.

Get more sleep
The secret to make the most of it, and also to be more beautiful and happier, is to sleep as much as possible, even taking advantage of the children's nap time to lie down for half an hour or take a relaxing bath. It seems wasted time, in reality it makes us more productive and peaceful.



 


Ask for help (everyone)
The worst thing is to do everything yourself while trying to be useful to everyone. Our partner probably won't run out of steam if he goes shopping for a bit on his way home from work, and likewise, our mother won't hate us for life if we ask her to go to the post office for us while she's downtown. running errands. And, for the record, even hiring a little help with housework - perhaps a trusted and referenced person who can also babysit us if necessary - has not yet become a crime. Admitting that you need help is not about being weak or a slacker, but simply trying to do things as best you can when possible.

Be organized
Organization is the key to super moms. This means, first of all, attaching a nice calendar to the wall where you can record every commitment, from school events to medical visits, from birthdays to swimming lessons. And, if in this period we feel really tired, we also write down the smallest tasks, such as the day of the shopping or the gift for the cousin.



Limit your commitments

Here's another super mom secret: don't overdo it. We are not gods

superheroes

- even if sometimes, at the end of the day, looking over our shoulders we feel semi-omnipotent - and it is always better to do few things and do well. We limit extracurricular activities, we learn to use the freezer and we do not pretend to clean the kitchen by almost completely disassembling it. Children's time must not be too structured, scheduled hour by hour; their agenda must have many white spaces that allow them to switch off and relax, perhaps with us.

The couple relationship

If we have a husband or partner next to us, we never forget the

our bond

. We try to regularly carve out an evening for two, without interruptions and away from diapers to change or quarrels to be sedated.

And here are some

trick

more to exploit.

- Let's cook double the amount of

pasta

and let's season it all together; let's bring part of it to the table and freeze the rest for an emergency meal.

- It doesn't matter how many children we have: even just for a few minutes a day, let's dedicate ourselves to only one of them at a time.

- While the children

they sleep

, we make those toys that have not been seen for a long time disappear. When we pick them up in a few weeks, they will probably capture all their interest, giving us a few minutes to ourselves.

- We buy small

furnishings

and furnishing accessories that allow you to quickly put away toys, books, magazines and other objects, removing them from view and thus avoiding them from making disorder. Some ideas: storage poufs, small chests, boxes with wheels to put under the bed, baskets.

spaces for vent

: a diary, a phone call to a friend, a blog where you can leave desperate comments on our existence in disguise.
