Working Moms: Don’t Let Your Mental Load Lead to Burnout A national survey by Bright Horizons finds working moms are the best at managing teams, but stress and bias can lead to burnout. French cartoonist Emma brilliantly explains the mental load and its effect on working mothers in a new comic titled “You Should’ve Asked.” The comic starts out with a quick story of an overworked mom who had to cook while tending to her child at a dinner party. Eventually things get out of hand as the mom attempts to handle everything herself.
If two or more of the above symptoms sound familiar, you might be experiencing what I refer to as the working mom’s dilemma, which can lead directly to mommy burnout. The great thing is that moms don’t have to accept these feelings as normal. There are some easy-to-implement changes that can be done to cope with working mom stress.
The mental load is a term for the invisible labor involved in managing a household and family, which typically falls on women’s shoulders.Also sometimes referred to as “worry work” or “cognitive labor,” the mental load is about not the physical tasks but rather the overseeing of those tasks. It’s being the one in charge of having the never-ending list of to-do items constantly running in your. The mental load that working mothers must take on is a responsibility that no one else can understand. You are the one in charge of keeping track of doctor’s appointments, signing permission slips, bringing potluck dishes, remembering birthdays, writing cards, staying on top of of clothes and sizes, knowing what’s in the fridge and pantry.
Even more disheartening is the finding that while 69 percent of working moms say their household responsibilities create a mental load, a full 52 percent say they are burning out from the weight of. Time Demands With all the care and nurturing that children require, as well as the additional demands of extra people in the household, most mothers feel a shortness of time.Whether it’s a lack of sufficient time to get the laundry done, time to spend just playing with the kids, time to one’s self, or time for dozens of other important activities, many mothers find that there are simply. Often the most tiring aspect of this work is being the “Knower of All the Things.” So often the mom is the one who holds all of the behind-the-scenes knowledge about all of the many things involved in raising a kid. The one who plans, who notices, who anticipates, who researches, who worries. This is often referred to as “the mental load.”.
Feeling as though your work comes home with you and being unable to get your clients out of your mind. It is obvious that this kind of thinking can quickly lead to burnout. Set aside relaxation time.
Relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation, and deep breathing activate the body’s relaxation response, a state of restfulness that is the opposite of the stress response. Get plenty of sleep. Feeling tired can exacerbate burnout by causing you to think irrationally.
