Being a full time working woman and mom to a kiddo that is growing up really fast, I don’t have the luxury of having lot of spare time on my hands and more so doing the things I really love. But I’ve learnt the importance of taking it easy and not allow the daily grind to wind me up and exhaust me completely, and believe me it was not at all easy! You see, I’m an aspiring super mommy/ woman albeit with very less strength but gradually my inner self got its due and now I make sure not to push myself beyond limits. I acknowledge when I’m tired. I pamper my body, cheer myself up when I’m teary because in the end I love myself. Yes, that is my mantra now- Live and Love Yourself!
My hard learned tips to make life a little less stressful and make your body and soul thank you:
Realize that we only have two hands and limited time and capability so do not try to accomplish every task possible and in the process tax your mind and body. Rather go slow, understand your capabilities and limitations and play them to the maximum to complete your chores, achieve your goals and please those around you 🙂
Women have this inherent quality of trying to be a superwoman but unfortunately our bodies are not machines. It’s not bad to accept help from your family members/ friends/co-workers if they offer. In fact, sometimes it makes them feel happy and get involved. You might say that you never get offered any help, but what if it is because we did not ask? So go ahead and don’t hesitate in case you are feeling overwhelmed with responsibilities.
In today’s world it gets difficult not to push yourself too much and that’s where listening to our body and mind becomes important. Go slow when your body aches or when you feel like taking a break, believe me I’ve learnt it the hard way 🙂
Don’t underestimate the power of spa treatments, facials or massages. Apart from the cosmetic effects, they have amazing relaxation properties and if possible you should try to go for them when you feel like.
I know it is difficult for some people but believe me, you will save lot of stress and anxiety once you plan things ahead. Want to give it a try? Just plan your work outfits for this week, or may be your child’s lunch box, and see if it helps.
These are some of the very basic things that have helped me come out of some extremely rough times, and get my energy and mojo back. I wish I had thought about implementing these earlier in my life and I hope they help some of you.
