FIND SOMETHING SMALL THAT YOU FIND PLEASURE IN
Such as drinking tea or coffee in the morning and being on social media
Giving yourself a DIY face mask before bed
Painting your nails
It can be anything that doesn't take up too much time but you find simple pleasure in. This will free your mind of any worries or anxieties for that moment and sometimes your brain needs that freeing moment of just not thinking... ya know!
If we are constantly putting things in our body that don't give us the proper fuel to run how are we supposed to perform at our best. Now this is something new for me and I am trying to make better choices every day, but so far I feel better eating whole raw foods that nourish my body and give me energy to be the best mommy I can be.
Challenge yourself to eat at least one whole raw food meal a day and just see where it takes you! I bet you feel so much better and continue to take the next step to being healthier!
FIND A HOBBY
This can be something you already enjoy doing or something you have been wanting to try.
But you have to give your self one day a week that is designated to that. So when the kids are napping or when your hubby has a day off. That way you can do your thing without worrying about someone elses needs. So for example I like to...
DIY craft from Dollar Tree
Color in a grown up coloring book lol one that is free of scribbles and tears.
Read a book
This is so important especially if your a SAHM. It is so important to breath fresh air and be in the sunshine. Nature calms me and I think everyone can use a little outside time.
Whether it's going for a walk to the park
Laying out in your backyard
This one is the most important I feel. I don't get to it all the time but when I do it makes me feel so much better. Time to reflect and get the negative or positive out. Most of the time I write when I am feeling down because it is therapeutic to me and gives me something to visually look at that is bothering me. I dunno about you but my mind races a million miles per minute. Its hard most of the time to put a finger on just one emotion that I am feeling so writing them down gets them out and frees up my mind for positive and good things. Also sometimes its nice to look back at it to see the progress you have made emotionally.
Well I hope this helps someone I know this probably isn't the most popular subject for people to read but if it helps just one person out there that would make it worth the writing to me :)
