One thing this busy mom is no stranger to is stress.
It’s a part of my daily life — my everyday routines are full of stress (and are often the cause with the shuffling, bustling and endless to-do lists).
With three kids, a full-time job and a business, my days are more hectic than anything else. So, I know how important it is to find joy in my busy day and feel healthier so I don’t burnout.
Here are three easy and quick ways to de-stress, find joy in the busy day and feel healthier:
1. Take a dance break
Nothing helps me to let off some steam like a dance break. All I have to do is play one of my favorite songs and get up on my feet. After a little heart-pounding (somewhat sweaty) dance routine, I’m feeling lighter and brighter.
2. Show gratitude for the little things
Whenever I feel really stressed, I take a moment to be appreciative. Expressing gratitude for something as small as an empty kitchen sink (which is no easy feat!) can bring instant joy to my busy day.
3. Eat a healthy snack
I’m a total foodie, so sometimes I just want to indulge in a yummy snack. Giving in to my sweet tooth brings complete joy and instant stress-relief. Luckily for me I’ve found a way that I can get my sweets in while still feeling healthy. It’s a true win-win!
