Mothers are notorious for taking on more than they can handle. You’re a mother and you’re suppose to be able to do it all and be perfect at it. There’s a mother’s rule book somewhere that says you can do it. Mothers can take on the world and not get tired. If you don’t do everything and not get tired , you get sent to the land of mother guilt. Dad’s can work come home sit in his favorite chair , watch TV and nobody makes him feel guilty. But if mom tries that , you’d think the world was coming to an end. In reality Mom’s get tired, mother’s become exhausted and every once in a while mother has to say “that’s enough” I need a break. There’s a few things you can do to get relieve.
*Insist on one night a month away from it all. A night out with the girls, join a club, play bridge, take a class for one night let dad baby sit and you get out of the house.
*Practice breathing exercises. This is something you can do while you’re taking a shower, making breakfast, or doing any of the dozens of things you’re expected to do. This gets the blood flowing and energizes the body.
*Take a fifteen minute nap. Do this before the kids get home for school or while the baby take its afternoon nap. Mothers need this afternoon pick-me-up.
*Let grandma baby sit while you take a fragrant bubble bath. Don’t forget the nice smelling candles. Just what a mother needs to relieve the stress.
