Handling Stress as a Mom

Motherhood is a gift whether it’s a first time experience or a perquisite. The experience is very personal and intriguing a huge part of the time. The experience could be better if someone appreciated your efforts. You are doing your best except just when you think you deserve some rest , the baby starts crying. This prompts you to gather your strength and put the back to sleep only for that loud shriek from your backyard to alarm you again. A wrestle mania show would have been appreciated if it wasn’t live between your kids and no one made you a referee. 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 almost got burned . That’s just the beginning.

A mother’ job is never done that cliche is unfortunately very true . 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 would not be a bad idea to inform your kids and everyone else that you need your own space. The thing about dancing is that you can always do you. You should tap into the power of music. 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. What better way is there to spend a weekend with some of your friends. If you haven’t made any its time to do that. Take advantage of the few opportunities that come from others to assist you.

Most mothers neglect themselves and their health because their time is limited. Time management skills may come in handy. Your health is the first priority because if its poor then you are not going to deliver properly. 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. The benefits of exercise may be achieved by running after your kids while playing or running up and down the stairs . Maintain a balanced diet and include a lot of healthy fats. The secret to life is not to sweat the small stuff and its all small stuff. 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.
