I was in North Park picking up a few items and I saw this wall at Artelexia, this statement is so true and just perfect for this post. Being a mom (of just one) I find myself always in go mode, or beating myself up about how to a better mom or wife. Sometimes I feel like my mind is going nonstop and it just won’t shut off. And whats crazy is I am not even working full time right now, I have so much respect for mamas out there who are doing it all. I am just the type of person that is super anxious, I have struggled with it my WHOLE life so I am constantly trying to control it and keep my mind calm. I wanted to share a few of the things that I do to help calm my soul and mind (besides pray)!
Bath time with Dr. Teals Epsom Salt Soaking Solution is one of my favorite ways to slow down and calm my mind and body. I found Epsom salts baths about 5 years ago because of some hip issues…. hip pain plus anxiety creates for a tight and tense body. I am not joking after 20 minutes soaking in Dr. Teals Epsom Salt my body is so much looser and relaxed. I wish I could take a bath every night but I just don’t have the time!
Yoga time with the Tone it up Ladies is something I do weekly to help relax and get a great stretch.
Take a nap… this is the hardest one for me because it takes me time to wind down. But it is said that taking a 90 min nap can be super restorative to the body and mind, and it also improves your spirit, memory, and focus.
Lets be honest…..there is nothing better and more relaxing than curling up on the couch after the baby is asleep with a nice big glass of Sauvignon Blanc …..while watching Wheel of Fortune (yes, thats right… I’m old and loveee the Fortune)
Everyone has things they can do to help their soul and mind feel more content, take time and give yourself a little love this week! And please take time to Follow my blog with Bloglovin
