If you smile it will instantly lift your mood and make others feel at ease, too. It’s true that the world does smile with you and at you!
Relax and be yourself
One of the most common issues that mums tend to worry about is what others are thinking of them, but what difference does is really make?
Try to use positive body language – making direct eye contact, standing tall, walking tall, keeping shoulders upright, being relaxed and smiling.
Get to know the person you’re talking to
Ask open questions, such as, “Could you recommend any other places to go with children?”
If you like somebody, why don’t you suggest catching up another time – with or without your little ones in tow?
Stay in contact
Your time is precious and there’s so much to do, but sending a quick text to check how someone else is doing is a good way to encourage a new friendship.
