5 Apps to Give Mom a Well-Deserved Break

Posted by ImOn Communications on May 10, 2019 1:51:19 PM



Being a mom has never been a more demanding job.

In the 1960s, the average mom spent about 10 hours a week on childcare, according to a study from Pew Research. But even though women now spend on average 25 hours a week working outside the home, we still devote more of our time to child care than our parents did.

The same study also found that nearly 8 in 10 adults think women face a lot of pressure to be an involved parent these days. Hop on Instagram and it’s easy to see why.

Resolutions may be hard to keep, but doesn’t mean they’re doomed to fail. According to psychologist John Norcross, you have the best chance of sticking to your resolution when you set one that’s realistic and attainable—in other words, one that you can work little by little.

“Track your progress by recording or charting the behavior in question,” says Norcross. “Reward your successes, [and] reinforce yourself for each step with a healthy treat or a compliment.”

The Internet has changed our lives in many ways. It makes it easier to pay bills, communicate, stay informed, and conduct business.
