How to Deal With Stress as a Mom
Motherhood is a gift whether it’s a first time experience or a perquisite. The feelings are always unique and magical, most of the time. The journey would be so much easier if someone acknowledged it. There is a tendency for babies to ruin your plan to catch some rest with loud shrieks. You are committed so you lull him to sleep only to lay him down on the bed and hear a loud shriek from the outside. Your other kids are fighting and being a referee is not your idea of a good time. Then you remember that you have left a task halfway and you would have been through if it were not for that phone call from school reminding you of a meeting . The food almost got burned . That’s just the beginning.
As a mother you’ll be surprised at how busy your schedule always is. This calls for you to regain your life again. You are giving a lot to others, so much so that you do not have time for yourself. That is why a nice little break will be in order. It is a good time to schedule in some me time and have everyone including your kids respect that. You do not have to know how to dance to make a move so do it anyway. Listen to the music you like. The thing about people who always have something to say about your kitchen sink is that they could be of help if you ask nicely. Have a reasonable plan to have sometimes with friends during the weekends. If you haven’t made any its time to do that. Get as much help as you can because you deserve it.
You can benefit greatly by balancing your health and lifestyle even with so little time. With a lot to be done good use of time will see you achieve more . You risk poor performance if your health takes a backseat. Going to the gym might be costly in matters of time though you could get the same benefits from kettle bell exercises with less 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 trick is to never let go of a good old balanced diet with just a bit of healthy fats. Learn to take life easy, it’s never that serious anyway. You should always feel in charge of how you raise your kids and apply only that which suits you from what everyone else teels you about parenting.
