Maama, remember we said we are going to level up in 2022. Leveling up is an action word, so that means we will be doing many things to become the best versions of ourselves; reading is one of those things. In this article, I will share the best books to read as a stay-at-home mom. 

Before we proceed, let me share some essential tips on compelling reading. 

Effective reading techniques for stay at home moms

When you’re at home with your kids, do you find it challenging to find time to read?

We all have different circumstances, and I’m not sure what yours is, but I would encourage you to find a way to fit reading into your day, even if it’s only for 15 minutes.

As a busy stay-at-home parent, here are some suggestions for how to fit in reading time.

  • To read in the morning, get up 30 minutes earlier.
  • Before going to bed, read for 15 minutes.
  • While your children watch a movie, colour, or play, you can read.
  • Make a “reading time” for the whole family.
  • Request that your husband set up a time for you to read each evening.
  • Listen to audiobooks.

Do less by Kate Northrup. 

The inherent assumption that your worth is proportional to your output accounts for much of the social censure that stay-at-home women face. 

The author of Do Less, Kate Northrup, wants to help people challenge this belief and transform it by creating a life that is full of meaning, joy, and presence. For me, this was a fantastic, encouraging book.

If you’re tired of time management and trying to fit everything into your daily routine, this book is for you. 

This book will urge you to do less to have and be more throughout the book. Not just as a mother, but as a person, a spouse, and whatever else you want to be “more” of. This book is chock-full of sound advice.

Hands-free mama by Rachael Macy Stafford 

This is a must-read for anyone who spends far too much time on their phone, like most of us.

You might perceive your phone as a quick escape or a connection to the outside world if you’re a stay-at-home mom. And that’s perfectly fine!

The issue arises when your phone occupies an unhealthy position in your life. If we aren’t careful, our phones can become crutches and even addictions. They are mainly used as a source of diversion.

Let’s face it; life is full of distractions. However, if we allow ourselves to be constantly distracted, we will be in trouble. We’re missing out on quality time with our children, God, husbands, and other friends and family members.

We permanently save the best for the last, don’t we?

One of the significant challenges we face as Stay At Home Mums is making full use of the hours we have at hand. 

It takes a lot of discipline to create time to engage in productive activities while staying at home. In addition, with so much going on around us, it is possible to lose track of time.
