Today I’m talking about Sanity. How you should keep it down when under stress and how I keep mine in check when I’m having a crazy and stressed day. Mothers are the type who work 24/7 and don’t get paid for it.. of course only in kisses and hugs from our kids. But honestly, sometimes life and being a mom can get overwhelming. We do everything for everyone and never get to fully have a day to use. When I’m having a stressful day and feel like I’m losing my shit I sit down in the room locked and just cry it out. Honestly, it helped so much to just let everything go and have no one bothering me or asking me for anything. My kids can be in the other room going crazy and knowing I’m just getting a second to breathe really keeps my stress levels down. I love to do face masks and do some skincare facials on days when my skin is stressed from all the stress I’m dealing with these are more quick ways to just focus on me while I’m out the shower or before bed.
I can admit I can get a bit overwhelmed with much. I’m home often alone and with my kids tending to there every little need. And although I love being a mom it gets tiring and my body and mind need some TLC and some sleep. I mean a full 8-10 hours. Haha. If only. Another way is to write it out. Literally right down how your feeling each day and the end of the week see how far you’ve come. Having less stressful days and feeling at peace with yourself really makes me feel like I’m getting my crap together and not going crazy with everything and everyone else. I love keeping a spiral notebook by me and writing my thoughts before I go to sleep that way I can let everything go and sleep peacefully.
I feel like at night if I don’t get my thoughts out I have more trouble sleeping than anything and doing this really helps me get my thoughts and my anger out on paper. if I’m stressed during the day with my kids or my husband or whatever we’re dealing with at home together I feel like it helps me alleviate some of that off my back. so doing this really helps me feel at peace when I’m sleeping and just makes me feel like the next day will be a better day than it was today. Another way that I like to alleviate some stress is by talking to a close friend or family member of what I’m going through just to get some of that advice and maybe their insight on things that I can do to just get my mind off of things that I’m dealing with.
I like joining Mom groups either on Facebook or Twitter and being able to talk to other moms about what you’re going through and feel like you’re not the only one dealing with this is very helpful. You never know you can wind up making friends that way or build bonds and relationships with other moms in your area and have play dates. I’ll link down below some mom groups I’m on Facebook.
You can join these groups by answering the questions and you’ll be able to join.
I hope some of these Tips or ways I help with stress help you. If you have good ways to help you be stress-free and give yourself some love let me know down below.
