How to Deal With Stress as a Mom

Being a mother is great whether its your first or fifth time. The feelings are always unique and magical, most of the time. The experience could be better if someone appreciated your efforts. Its not uncommon for the baby to terrorize you with endless tears when you are just retiring to rest. 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 the realization that you left some work incomplete because you had to take the call informing you of the meeting in school. 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 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. 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. You do not have to know how to dance to make a move so do it anyway. 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.

Most mothers neglect themselves and their health because their time is limited. 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. 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. People have a lot to say about parenting but the choice on how to go about it is yours completely.
