As a mom, wife, and entrepreneur, it can be quite easy to sweat the small stuff. Ayesha Curry, however, lives by a different set of rules that let her enjoy every aspect of life. The celebrity mom shares her secrets with Brit + Co.
“Not putting a ceiling on myself has really helped — and setting goals, but not dwelling on them if they don’t happen,” she reveals. “For me, it hasn’t been about working for those goals. It’s just been about working,” Ayesha explains. ”
When you focus on one thing, you don’t realize all of the other blessings that are happening. I make sure that I put forth my best effort and am working really hard to make myself better in everything that I’m doing every single day. That’s been a big key. I’ve also learned how to shake off the negatives that happen. The bad things have taught me to be resilient, so I can press forward and get better.”
Getting better for Ayesha means balancing motherhood with her many business ventures. “The first thing is lots of coffee,” the celebrity muses. “I literally have to schedule myself down to the second. It gets frustrating at times, but that’s kind of how it works for me.”
Scheduling every aspect of her day has taught Ayesha a few things. “It’s always quality over quantity,” she shares. “The important part for me has been to make sure that when I am with my girls, I’m disconnected and my phone is down and I’m spending quality time with them. I don’t try to work and play at the same time. It’s really about making sure that you divide the two and set aside the time for work, and then set aside the time to be a mom.”
Ayesha and husband Stephen Curry have two kids, Riley and Ryan. Both of the girls celebrate their birthdays in July.
