Mom wine culture is a normalized lifestyle among moms that is often not seen as a point of concern. Unless there’s a health issue at hand, it seems pretty harmless, right? And don’t moms deserve this luxurious break?
Is it to relax or to numb?
Drinking wine is not a problem, but habitually doing it to escape our daily stresses makes it so. It has become a common coping mechanism of moms in dealing with life. Because after a full day of working and tending to the needs of our family, we get that instant chill through the alcohol. And it taste good! (See also: what mom self-care really looks like.)
Similarly, people find ways to numb themselves out. Others do it by scrolling through their phones, eating more sugar, watching TV, drinking alcohol, etc. But the problem with depending on instant gratification, we paralyze our ability to find adequate coping strategies in the face of challenges!
But you don’t have to shame yourself for it, mama! It’s EASY to get caught up in these habits that aren’t serving us. We have to recognize that these addictive things were created so we want more of them. And it’s understandable that bad habits are hard to break, but it’s possible. You just first have to be aware of it so you can start to take small little shifts towards new healthy habits.

“We have to be aware of what we consume as habitual beings.”
Confidently stepping out of a habit doesn’t mean you’re running away from something. But rather, you’re running towards something (better). And the most beautiful thing about removing these numbing devices is that we get to know ourselves and trust ourselves again. So take that first step! The world needs us rising women to be in our full clarity and power!
