3 ways to unwind after a stressful day
Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom, a working momma, or a just a busy gal – in general, life can get quite hectic no matter how much you try to pace yourself. I am a huge believer in “me” time. Super important, how else would I function?! For me, in order to be productive and give the best of me, I must have my alone time. I’m constantly on the “GO” and sometimes tackling two or three things at once and before you know it, I’m blown out! This is why, it’s so important to give yourself a little time to unwind, relax and enjoy each day you’re blessed you with. With that being said, here are some ways I love to unwind after a stressful day:
Watching a Show
My husband can attest to this. I’m a huge fan of TheReal daytime show. When I come home from work, it’s straight to the kitchen to cook dinner. First thing I do, is turn on the TV, click recordings and watch “The Real,” while still wearing my work clothes and my husband keeps little Emily occupied while I cook (He’s such a good Daddy…I can’t complain). I love watching these women because one, I can relate to them (I swear, me and Tamera are besties) and two, they keep it real! After a long stressful day, I just want to relax and have a girl’s day – even if it’s just a television show for an hour.
Have a Drink
Vino. The mommy juice! Because water or coffee is just not going to cut it. That simple!
Although I haven’t followed it through as much, I would like to make it a habit and read at least a couple of pages of a book before going to bed. Whether it’s an inspirational book or the bible, reading something to keep me motivated before closing my eyes for the day is super helpful. Believe it or not, I tend to wake-up with more energy and motivated.
