Shake That Stress Off, Mom!
Being a mother is great whether its your first or fifth time. The experience is always new and fascinating, well almost. 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. 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. A wrestle mania show would have been appreciated if it wasn’t live between your kids and no one made you a referee. Then the realization that you left some work incomplete because you had to take the call informing you of the meeting in school. You’ve just saved yourself another cooking session in the nick of time. That’s just the beginning.
The dilemma that most mothers face is that they may not necessarily have a break from their duties. 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. Take a time out in the course of the day and make it absolutely clear to all, your kids included that you are having a relaxing session. You do not have to know how to dance to make a move so do it anyway. Its impossible to go wrong with good music by your side. Leave the kitchen sink be for a while and tell everyone who makes reference to it that you would appreciate a good deal if they helped out. Have a reasonable plan to have sometimes with friends during the weekends. 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. You are sure to get more done if you utilize your time properly. Your health is the first priority because if its poor then you are not going to deliver properly. You may not have an hour to spend in the gym but with kettle bell exercises you could stay fit with half of the time. It may not be necessarily direct, make a point of running up and down stairs if you have some or running after your kids for a while. The trick is to never let go of a good old balanced diet with just a bit of healthy fats. 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.
