How to Reduce Mom Stress

I have days where I feel so stressed out, all I want to do is cry, or throw a temper tantrum. Some days I feel like I have so much on my plate and nothing is getting done. Some times there isn’t any specific reason for my stress, I can’t pin point it and that drives me crazy.

Find Your Peace

What I mean about find your peace is find that activity that brings you happiness or a sense of calm. For me, I love taking a hot bath and just laying there in the quiet for a few minutes. I will also bring my book into the bath and read.

Deep Breathing

Deep breathing is a great way to calm down. Go somewhere quiet for a few minutes and take a few deep breaths. All the way in and all the way out. 3 seconds in, 6 seconds out. Do that a few times and I bet it will help you calm down and get a little more perspective on your emotions.

Pray or Talk to the Universe

Even if you don’t believe in God or a greater being talk. Get your thoughts out there, send them out to the universe, talk about what you want and all the amazing things that will happen in your life. Send out those positive vibes to the universe and let it do it’s magic. 

Play a Game

Sometimes when I am really stressed out and feel like I just need a quick mental escape I will turn to a game on my phone or computer. It helps you zone out for a few minutes and takes a much-needed break. If you are on a desktop there are games you can play that are quick and easy to learn.

Relax Your Muscles

This one is so great, especially before bed. This works wonders if I can’t sleep at night. Lay down and slowly start to relax your muscles. Start at the tip of your head and work your way slowly down to your toes. Relax each muscle one by one.
