Lately, more and more, it’s been a whole lot harder on us moms. Heck, it has been harder on everyone. But from my mom perspective, it’s been stressful. I am going back to school soon and my daughter as well. Pretty soon we will be in school mode. It will be zoom classes, reading books, homework, studying, confused looks, and pressing snooze.

Sometimes I stop, breathe, and take a step back. We will get overwhelmed; it will happen and when it does, we just need to remember to find something to relax us and bring us a little bit of calm.

For me, it can be just sitting quietly for a few minutes, listen to some music, or maybe have a coffee break. Something to get you motivated again. Some moms I know go for a jog, or even clean to help themselves calm down. We all have those days where it can be too much, and everything is giving you a headache. In my experience, if you just take a step back and let yourself breathe it will do you a world of good.

So, no matter what is giving you stress today, don’t forget to take a little break and take care of you.
