Are you in the habit of rushing to work and equally rushing home because there is so much to do both at home and at work? Ever went to bed tired ignoring so many things in the bedroom and kitchen needing your attention, only to be interrupted a few hours later by the sound from your alarm clock? Do you always leave the house with more chores needing your attention that you carry part of your makeup/shoes and scarves to the office to dress appropriately later? Do you sometimes wish you could be in two or three places all at once? Are you a mother that works? Because if you are, then you'll appreciate and understand why there is a need to talk about how hard each day is for this superwoman called the "working mom".
Working Moms Nigeria is an endeavors to help women strike a healthy balance between earning a living and maintaining a good home.

WhatsApp had 200 million users last year in August, but the number swelled to 430 million in January 2014. The instant messaging app reportedly processes 50 billion messages on an average every day and users are sharing 700 million photos and 100 million videos per day.
“Thanks to all of you, half a billion people around the world are now regular, active WhatsApp users. Users are also sharing more than 700 million photos and 100 million videos every single day. We could go on, but for now, it’s more important that we get back to work – because here at WhatsApp, we are just getting started,” read an official company blog post.
The fastest growth has been witnessed in countries like Brazil, India, Mexico, and Russia. Speaking about India alone, the nation constitutes almost 10 per cent (9.6 per cent to be exact) of the total user base of WhatsApp. Currently, India is the single largest country for the company, with the service having 48 million monthly actives users (MAUs). In just two months, the company has added 8 million MAU’s (WhatsApp had 40 million users in India as of Feb 2014).
WhatsApp has achieved these numbers by joining forces with a number of telecom operators in the country including Reliance Communications, Tata Docomo and Uninor. As per, WhatsApp's Neeraj Arora the service in India is gaining 4 million active users every month and that the country’s user base is likely to surpass the 50 million mark in May.Close on heels is Brazil with 45 million actives while Turkey has 14 million active users.
Jan Koum, co-founder of WhatsApp says in a post on company’s blog that they have not made any huge changes in WhatsApp over the last six months, except around 1,000 little bug fixes and improvements. Plans to add a voice calling feature in the app are in the pipeline and features is likely to be rolled out in the next few months.

The truth is that Late-night convos with close colleagues from bed shouldn’t replace pillow talk with your domestic partner. You must set boundaries. I will urge you to limit working from your love nest to a few times a week, or only when under a tight deadline. Oga will understand deadlines. Save the other nights for, ahem, other things so that God will bless your homely ministry.
SIT UP WOMAN.
Replacing your desk for a fluffy pillow sounds comfortable right, but working from bed can actually lead to bad posture and a stiff neck and back. Prevent slouching with posture-friendly props like your headboard and firm pillows to keep your laptop at desk height and your wrists at a good angle.
Set a reminder to get up and move around or do a light stretch, like a yoga pose or any exercise you are comfortable doing. It can be erotic ones, mbok your ministry will not only be blessed but you will receive serious anointing from man of the house.
SHUT IT DOWN BEFORE A SHUT-EYE. Finish night work at least 30 minutes before snooze time so your mind can de-stress. And pack up your laptop and move all devices to where you can’t see or hear them, since the distracting pings, dings and lights from computers and smartphones can decrease levels of sleep-inducing melatonin. I will suggest you turn them off completely. Hint: Let a real alarm clock wake you, and say goodnight to your phone until morning hahaha. Do you want the real alarm clock? It is right there in your home if you have a new born baby otherwise right me for suggestions on real alarm clocks options lol.
These are a few I could think up, if you have more tips, kindly add to the list. Enjoy your weekend mamas.
