Five obstacles to mom happiness

After writing my post on beating boredom, it occurred to me that most of the things that get in the way of moms and their happiness fall under just a handful of categories. I’m going to be writing about these obstacles in the weeks to come:

  • boredom (check!)
  • lack of sleep
  • being overwhelmed
  • isolation
  • inertia

Can you think of any others? Relationship problems can definitely be an obstacle to happiness, but then again, often relationship troubles are caused by one (or more) of the above. And financial troubles are heightened by all of the above, but probably deserve their own category.

Moms, what would you add to the list?
