𝐒𝐀𝐕𝐄 𝐏𝐎𝐒𝐓 – 𝐌𝐘 𝐌𝐄𝐋𝐓𝐃𝐎𝗪𝐍 𝐑𝐄𝐂𝐎𝐕𝐄𝐑𝐘 .. Since the time you become a mother, being stressed about small or bigger situations becomes a part and parcel of our life. Isn't it? .. Technically stress builds up gradually, sometime little thing worn you up and sometimes or non related news worns you up. Sometimes you wake up with your jar already half full and sometimes accidental news creates the shift. .. As you stress jar starts filling up, you may shout, cry, lose your patience and much more. I had a meltdown yesterday and I know its unavoidable at times..I personally felt I have been trying to be a supermom since atleast the last 15 days and it felt overwhelming. .. But the right attitude can help you empty out the stress jar. 𝟏. stop your work for the moment, the to-do list you have, take a break of 30 mins or so 𝟐. listen to music, watch humor related things, a movie or web series, have a bath, doodle, colour, paint etc whatever helps to have the positive mindshift 𝟑. Use positve affirmations like 🌟my tension is melting away 🌟I am relaxed and calm 🌟I am in control of my stress 🌟everything is going to be ok 𝟒. Meditate before going to sleep This is actually a powerful tool, since you relax and calm your nerves not allowing it to pass it to others 𝟓. write down your feelings in my case I wrote a blog on how covid19 challenged my parenting (if interested to read check the link in bio) .. well these are some of my ways of overcoming my stress levels. How do you deal with meltdowns, low points etc .. #themagicplatter #stressrelief #sahm #indianmom #indianfamily #stressedout #copingstrategies #anxietyrelief #mommatters #supporteachother #momtruth #momtalks #supermom #toddlerparent #motherhoodunplugged #igmoms #momshaming
Am I the only mom who has found this challenging ? This phase is definitely a tough one and I know it will pass but it sometimes makes me doubt on being a parent. My emotions are mixed, my feelings are mixed. Sometimes I feel it’s OK, its a phase and that will pass, sometimes I feel I am horrible, sometimes i feel impatient and sometimes i feel it’s taking away my space. Whatever it is, Covid19 has definitely challenged my parenting Skills and I vouch to accept this crisis and come out stronger and a better parent from the other end.
