Handling Stress as a Mom
Being a mother is great whether its your first or fifth time. The experience is very personal and intriguing a huge part of the time. It would have been nice if someone cut you some slack. There is a tendency for babies to ruin your plan to catch some rest with loud shrieks. As soon as the baby is back to sleep a shriek from your backyard sends you off your game. Being a referee was not what you bargained for as a career but its inevitable because in this case its your kids doing the fighting. Then you are awakened by the reality of the half done work that was interrupted when you picked up the call reminding you of a school meeting. The food you are preparing was on the verge of burning. What’s worse is that its just the start.
The dilemma that most mothers face is that they may not necessarily have a break from their duties. This is why your quest to get yourself on track should be vigilant. The aim is to serve others without letting yourself take a backseat. Stop for a while ,the world won’t stop just because you took a break. It is a good time to schedule in some me time and have everyone including your kids respect that. The thing about dancing is that you can always do you. Listen to the music you like. The kitchen sink might be looking terrible but if anyone asks just smile and hand them the dishwasher. It is also a great plan to have a night out with friends. If you don’t have close friends the best you can do is make some. Take advantage of the few opportunities that come from others to assist you.
It is key to stay healthy and stress free at all times despite the challenge of time. With a lot to be done good use of time will see you achieve more . Your health is the first priority because if its poor then you are not going to deliver properly. Kettle bell exercises could function as a good replacement for the gym if you are looking to save on time. Exercise does not have to be a workout even simple things like running up and down the stairs and chasing your kids could prove useful. The advice on eating a balanced diet and healthy fats always works. Life as you may realize is a riveting tale of twists and turns and only those that approach it with perhaps a little bit of humor get to enjoy it. While their might be a lot of advice extended to you the point is settling for what works and deliberately ignoring the others.
