Being a mom is a 24×7 job. She needs breaks too! Here are ten stress relief tips for moms. Pick one and take a break today.
People often think a stay at home mom (SAHM) has lots of time for herself daily, that she is a free bird at home and can do whatever she wants at home. But this is one of the toughest jobs to handle. As there is no fixed 9- 5 time and no fixed schedules, it’s a job that demands your time 24×7.
Continuously playing this role all alone at home is sometimes suffocating and takes a toll on health. Moms often get stressed out and frustrated after a tiring day of babysitting, handling the newborn, bearing the tantrums of naughty kids and doing the daily household chores. To calm down and to de-stress ourselves, we must take mini breaks from our daily routine and come out to experience life on the outside.
Leave the baby with daddy for some time and enjoy your ‘ME’ time for a while. Here are a few ways you can de-stress.
Take an evening walk
Enjoy the evening breeze, walk with a friend, talk about positive things in life, introspect yourself.
Visit a beauty parlour
Once in a while, pamper yourself, go for a facial, body massage, get a makeover. Enjoy the special treatment at the spa.
Indulge in your favorite food
Have fun cooking your favorite signature dish, try out new dishes, or baking, and don’t forget to enjoy eating.
Sleep like a baby
Sometimes all we need is some relaxation, peace and rest. So go, sleep like a baby.
To remain focused in life, practise meditation daily for some time.
Read a book
Get your favorite author’s latest book and have a good time reading it.
Visit a friend
If you have lost touch with your friends, renew your friendship by staying in touch with them. Visit them. Enjoy the friendly gossip and chitchat.
Watch a Movie
If you are a movie buff, go out for a movie and have some fun time out.
If you love doing art and crafts, spend some time making something interesting.
If you love writing, try blogging about your thoughts, your experiences, your life.
I bet you will be fresh, happy and more relaxed after these short breaks. Being a busy mother, you deserve all the breaks to live a fulfilled life. If you haven’t taken one, go on, take one today.

Can you believe this bloke compelled me to wear only saris - full time at home- till the eighth month of my pregnancy?! The excessive heat coupled with humidity made my life miserable.
Recently when I browsed an interesting post by a fellow author on this very forum I had a sense of déjà vu. She describes the absolutely unnecessary hullabaloo over ladies donning nighties and /or dupatta –less suits.
I wish to narrate how I was in dire straits so far wearing a ‘nightie’ was concerned.
I lived in my ultra orthodox sasural under constant surveillance of two moral guardians (read Taliban) in the shape of the husband’s mom and dad. The mom was unschooled and dim-witted while the dad was a medical practitioner. But he out-Heroded the Herod in orthodoxy.
My supervisor introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As a transwoman navigating the corporate world, I had encountered my fair share of discrimination and challenges. Transitioning without the support of my parents and having limited friendships in my personal life made the journey difficult and lonely. However, when I stepped into the office, something remarkable happened, I left behind the stress and negativity, embracing a space where I could truly be myself.
Joining the marketing team as a graphic designer, I was initially apprehensive about how my colleagues would react to my gender identity. But to my surprise, the atmosphere was welcoming and respectful from day one. My supervisor, Sarah, introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As I settled into my role, I discovered that my colleagues went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and included. They consistently used my correct name and pronouns, creating an environment where I could be authentically me. Being an introvert, making friends wasn’t always easy for me, but within this workplace, I found a supportive community that embraced me for who I truly am. The workplace became a haven where I could escape the stresses of my personal life and focus on my professional growth.
