1. Stay Spiritually Grounded. Worship is an important tool to maintain balance between your physical and spiritual selves. When one over-shadows the other, you likely experience anxiety, stress and worry.
A Solution to spiritual imbalance: Incorporate prayer, quiet time and a meaningful faith into your everyday life. Most of all, remember to breathe.
2. All work and no play…you know the rest. A typical day in the life of a busy mom recorded on paper would look like
a roadmap to China! Think about it. One minute you’re at the office, the next, you’re running errands (during an all to short lunch hour), then when you’re “supposed” to be "off" [work that is] you’re preparing dinner and helping kids with homework. It can all be too much!
A Solution for the Mad-Hatter Momma: Intentionally, figure out how to incorporate some brainless fun into each day. Whether reading a book, enjoying a hot bubble bath, or playing a fun game on the internet, there is something simple you enjoy doing, so do it.
3. Don’t forget the bod! Another way to put yourself back on the list is to find a way to exercise your bodily system regularly - and enjoy doing it! I like Leslie Sansone's "Walk Away the Pounds" series. I buy them at Walmart for about 10 bucks. They are quick, easy to do and the time zooms by.
