The Internet Effect


This digital progress and evolution can have its advantages and disadvantages to the lifestyle and mental health of both the mother and the kid. For children, the primary one being, losing touch with learning from experienced individuals who are a part of your life and can help build traditional, cultural and sentimental values, that add on to rather stable parenting.

A lot of mothers balance work, kids and family, which subconsciously affects their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. In such times, it's crucial to focus on the goal – which is to stay healthy in these times of a pandemic. Millennial mothers have, however, evolved to be independent and have found out alternatives to balance their motherhood, personal and professional lives. However, switching off or changing the course to their wellbeing is entirely in their control:

- A yoga session, exercise routine, a dance or an art session, quick chat or video call with their friends can alleviate their worries.
An open conversation about their kids with the teachers about their educational progress can help unburden the mind in these challenging situations.
A simple routine of meditation or listening to music can help give that personal time which is missing in these times of social distancing.

If the digital-age mothers can stay centred and grounded, trusting their instincts along with the knowledge and experience gained from this unusual situation, this can be a learning experience, from bonding with the family and appreciating the teachers to expanding their limits as a mother and as an individual.
