Why stay at home moms are always tired?
Come, find the real reason why Stay at home moms are always tired, even more than you think, and a little encouragement and love for those emotionally and physically exhausted mamas! Mothers with younger kids often have a style. A messy bun with a pair of pajamas and a ketchup stained shirt. They don’t keep themselves stylish or do their hair more often. Are they really that tired?
So here is my theory on why Stay at home moms are super tired; check it out below!
1. Stay at home moms don’t get a proper sleep
If you are a stay at home mom, you would agree that even after a long 10 hours sleep, you wake up tired. The reason is that our minds never sleep! Even if our eyes are closed and we are sleeping, we are aware because this is how we are supposed to be.
Is the tap running?
Is the microwave on?
Baby is up for a milk bottle?
Does little one need a blanket?
Baby just spoiled his diaper?
There is a LOT going on in our minds so we never sleep peacefully. And when our husbands sleep even for 6 hours, they get up fresh. The difference is obvious!
2. They have less time for themselves
Even if stay at home moms stay home all day, they get less time for themselves the whole day. From sun up to sundown, moms are focused on others. Be it their kids or partner or house chores. Even a trip to the bathroom is a mission for stay at home moms. If you are an exhausted working mom, you can get to meet somebody and have some adult talk to relieve the burden and you can go washroom in peace, ALONE!
But if you stay at home, you couldn’t even imagine that. It’s a blessing no doubt, but it’s equally tiring and that’s why to stay at home moms are exhausted 24/7 and too tired to be good moms.
3. They are multi-taskers
I am a stay at home mom and trust me I am doing 6 things almost at one time. Cooking dinner, washing dishes, feeding my kids, preparing smoothies for my little one, wiping the counters, talking on phone, searching for articles to keep my sanity, updating my blog and so on!
This list never ends. This is super duper tiring for my mind as well as for my body! Multi-tasking is no joke guys.

There are even more reasons why we, stay at home moms are always saying we are tired. Somedays I cannot even take a nap if my kids are up because if I do, I would wake up to a messy house that would need cleanup of hours.
But guess what, stay at home mom or a working mom, after so many years, we all are gona look back at this time and smile! Because that’s what we mothers do!
