Everyone has things that cause them to feel stressed, but for a lot of moms it can be absolutely draining. Sometimes it’s so bad you don’t even realize you’re burned out, and that’s no good. It's bad for the people around mom, too. Not sure if you're burned out? Maybe you're doubting that you are? Here are some warning signs:
Forgetting everything - Sure, there’s pregnancy brain and mommy brain, but when you’re forgetting things constantly, it can be a sign you’re burned out and running on fumes.
Snapping at your kids and partner - If you’re catching yourself being more snappy than usual, it might be because you’re fed up and burned out.
Watering down your "Mom" routine - If you’ve gone from the mother who makes three-course meals all the time to telling the kids: “fend for yourself, again,” you may be more burned out than you realize.
