I write from years of experience, having raised 4 kids to adulthood. Does that mean I figured it all out? Nope. It simply means I’ve been there, done that. I did learn a few things along the way, and I like to try and help other moms reduce their stress to a tolerable level.
So many moms today are just EXHAUSTED. I know Joyce’s son, A.J. gets up before the crack of dawn! I pointed out “three reasons why moms are so tired“. Are you guilty of any of these?
And many times you probably feel like you are running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Driving kids from here to there, groceries, doctors, sports and more. It’s easy to let life get too crowded, if you don’t choose to live intentionally. I asked “Are you cramming too much in your life?” Could this be adding to your stress?
I have heard from many moms that are just frustrated because they can never seem to get anything accomplished. The kids always need something, and if it’s not the kids, it’s the husband or the dog. Sometimes our stress level can be reduced just by looking at things from a different perspective. Check out “Learning to work with the time that you have.”
Feeding your family can be a major source of stress. It doesn’t help that they need to actually eat EVERY DAY, and several times a day at that! I wrote a post sharing some quick and easy meals for those incredibly crazy weeks. They’re not gourmet by any stretch of the imagination, but kids don’t care anyway! Visit “10 easy meals for busy nights.”
Another reasons moms are so stressed? They never take time to do anything at all for themselves. They are on the bottom of their priority list. I encourage moms to MAKE time for themselves, even in small ways. I have some suggestions on “10 steps to a happier mama.”
