20 Simple ways to be a more content single mum | Beanstalk Mums

Do you feel content? What is contentment? Would you like to be a more content single mum?

The adjective for being content is ‘in a state of peaceful happiness.’ Sounds blissful doesn’t it? It’s something we really want and spend a lot of time searching for.

Yet contentment comes from within. It is a personal thing. And is different to everyone. You may be content with a peaceful evening to yourself, or content cheering on your kids on the side of a sports field. Two completely different activities, both happy and fulfilling to the right person.

Contentment, like happiness, is scientifically proven to be contagious. So if you’re content your children will feel content too. Just think .. peaceful, happy children! Could we ask for more?

The best bit is that it’s super-easy to have a more content life. Small steps, little changes … and to get you started we’ve made a list of 20 simple ways to be a more content single mum.
