Many working moms are filled with feelings of but also the desire to maintain that aspect of their life where they get to be a person other than mom and pursue their career aspirations.
Just like many aspects of life (style, home-decor, hobbies) we look up-to the stars for inspiration, we can certainly look to them for parenting advice. They also have to work long hours, juggle motherhood and try to look their best at the same time.
Here are 4 celebrity moms that tell you how they manage:
Jessica Alba: The head of The Honest Company, action film star, and mom to daughters Honor and Haven and newborn son Hayes, says the key to balancing it all is just being good to yourself. "Don't be hard on yourself. Doing your best to be present wherever you are is what's important." Amen! The Girl Boss also recommends working mamas take some time out for themselves on the regular. "It's worth it to recharge once a week," she explained. "Get sleep, have a date night or a girls' night in, and drink some wine!"
Debra Messing: "Make sure you have people around you that can give you support and help, whether it's best friends, family members, or a babysitter. It's incredibly hard even when you don't have a job. So, when you have a full-time job on top of that, you just have to be í¼ber organized, and that was a hard lesson for me to learn."
Giuliana Rancic: "What I do when I'm at work, I'm fully focused on work. I return all my emails. I don't just sit there and surf the Internet like before. And when I'm home, I would focus fully on my son Duke and put the phone away...that way I would feel a little more of a balance."
Victoria Beckham: "It's a huge juggling act, when you are a working mother and looking after your family. Millions and millions of women around the world are doing this every day, but it isn't easy and yes, you feel soury every time you walk out of the door to go to work. The key is to pace yourself. One child at a time."
