Handling Stress as a Mom
Whether it’s the first or the fifth time you are having a child being a mother is something to write home about. The feelings are always unique and magical, most of the time. The journey would be so much easier if someone acknowledged it. Its not uncommon for the baby to terrorize you with endless tears when you are just retiring to rest. 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. Your other kids are fighting and being a referee is not your idea of a good time. 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. 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. The thing about dancing is that you can always do you. Listen to the music you like. 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. What better way is there to spend a weekend with some of your friends. It would be a great idea to start making friends if you have none. Get as much help as you can because you deserve it.
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 . You risk poor performance if your health takes a backseat. 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. Maintain a balanced diet and include a lot 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. People have a lot to say about parenting but the choice on how to go about it is yours completely.
