However, if you truly study how to level up as a woman you will uncover that there is a high sense of emotional intelligence that you need. Being emotionally intelligent doesn’t mean that you can’t cry or express yourself. If fact, it means the opposite.

3. Establish clear personal goals
On another note, if you’re sitting here wondering how to level up as a woman you are probably at a place in life where you feel stagnant. Mama, I feel your pain.
Let me just say this…
Motherhood is so beautiful and rewarding. But, it can also be super draining. You quickly lose yourself in the process because there is an ENTIRE human life dependent on every single decision you make. Even the slightest… if that’s not scary I don’t know what is.
I say all this to say, that when you establish clear and unconditional personal goals for yourself you will level up in a magnitude of ways.
These are some personal goals you can set to level up as a woman
- Create multiple income streams
- Exercise 3 days a week
- write my gratitude list once a week
- Buy high quality items
- Drink a green smoothie or eat a salad every day
- Track and develop a budget
- journal every night before bed/ Use journal prompts to help
- Go to bed at the same time each day
- drink a water daily
- “treat” yourself once a week
4. Overcoming Self-doubt and limiting beliefs
Like many millennial moms, self-doubting the ability to lead and shape the world around us can be really hard. Let’s face it. If things don’t look as picture perfect as the people we follow on Instagram, we immediately shut down. If you want to learn how to level up in your 20’s, start working on your self-doubt and limited beliefs.
Easily, we lie to ourselves, telling ourselves that we can’t accomplish the goals we once set for ourselves because we are now “mom”.
We’ve allowed folks’ to tell us that we should enjoy a slow and simple lifestyle.
That it’s okay (and much preferred) for us to stop chasing dreams and focus on homemaking.

6. Find Communities and Relationships that nurture you
Do you remember those initial days in the hospital after giving birth? Those are the days that so many mamas love.
Because help and support is readily available. If you were fortunate to have really great nurses/birthing staff then you can guess where I’m going with this.
Find communities or relationships that are supportive of where you are in life and will be there to help as you transition into motherhood. Honestly say, many new moms say they felt super empowered leaving the hospital because they were supported throughout my stay.
A lot of the times, you may even leave equipped with the knowledge of how to get the support you needed (if needed) once you’ve had a few days home with the baby.
All things said, the best advice for how to level up as a woman in motherhood is to make sure you surround yourself with people, programs, or communities that will allow you to flourish in motherhood. This is how you level up. If you were already killin’ the mom game, then finding the right people in your life will take you to the next level. That personal growth is ALWAYS undefeated.
7. Reconnect with your professional/financial goals
Let me say this (say it with me), just because you became a mom does not mean you give up….
*One more time for the folk in the back*
JUST BECAUSE YOU BECAUSE YOU BECAME A MOM DOES NOT MEAN YOU GIVE UP…this absolutely goes for anything. For your education, for your career, for your relationship. Don’t give up. Nurture those things.
I say nurture those things, because now that you have entered motherhood, those things will always be a gentle tug at your individuality and identity.
As I mentioned previously, you can get sucked into motherhood very quickly. So, having something that was once so vital to your identity is super helpful if things get rough.
On another note, reconnecting with your professional and financial goals will cause you to reflect on why those goals are important. As a mom, it’s a no brainer. Having a new life makes you want to work extremely hard to provide the best life that you can. Don’t believe me? Take it from Serena Williams and Meghan Markle.
You are a rockstar! Never give up!
8. Reward yourself for the great job your doing
Mama, let me just say this… You are doing a ROCKSTAR job. If no one told you today that you are glue to your family. then I am here to say it.
Now go treat yourself to a nice dinner.
If not already obvious, I firmly believe in self-gratitude (But not in a cocky way). Just as a message to your brain to keep up the good work. It’s a morale boost.
Once you understand that you are deserving for any good coming your way then you are on the right track to understanding how to level up as a woman.
9. Practice and Journal positive affirmations
On the other hand, positive affirmations are cornerstone to leveling up as a woman. Your wellness and mental/emotional agility will become a beautiful aspect of growth.
To level up we want to be the most healed versions of ourselves. Hence, why we preach to our readers to download the inner child workbook in the printables tab.
Start doing the work… heal your self… and become the woman of your dreams.
