Why is it that the words “stressed” and “frazzled” seem to be used so often in the same sentence as “mom?” Perhaps it’s because as moms we tend to take on more than we can handle, usually because we want the best for our kids and our families, and also because sometimes we feel this insane urge to do it all.
We feel like if we don’t do absolutely everything, then we’re failing. Of course, the truth is, we can’t do it all, and we weren’t meant to, but that is easier to say than to do. Welcome to #momlife.
That’s why I’m glad MamaZen tumbled into my life; it reminds me that it’s okay to calm down and breathe. It’s okay that I want to take some time for myself. After all, we are moms, yes, but we are also human.
If you find yourself getting worked up over the smallest things, burnt out, and on edge, then know that you are not alone. If you were, there wouldn’t be any need for Mommy Mindpower, meditation, or other forms of relaxation. There are reasons things like yoga, bubble baths, and wine exist, moms! Therefore, if you find that you are always stressed out and agitated, take some time to reset.
Use Mommy Mindpower’s Deep & Restful Sleep session for several nights to help refocus your mindset and drift off into a sound sleep so that you wake up feeling refreshed. If you’re worried about all of the things you have to do, take a few extra minutes before bed to write them down. This way, they are out of your brain, but you know they are not forgotten. Also, try to go tech-free at least an hour before you plan to get in bed, so no phones, computers, tablets, or television.
Nobody changes overnight, change is a process; heck, life is a process. We all learn as we go and adapt and overcome. Qualities like patience, being calm, and taking time for yourself are not always easy to come by when you’re a mom. Our natural tendency is to put everyone and everything before ourselves. Well, moms, it’s time to breathe and remember that you need to take care of you first -- look at it this way, ultimately it’s the best thing to do for your kids because they’ll get a calmer and happier mommy out of it.
