5 Simple Ways To Relieve Stress #StressLess2BmyBest


Life is busy. There is hardly any down time. With five children that are nine years and younger, homeschooling, taking care of normal household duties (cleaning, grocery shopping, cooking), being the “taxi” taking kids to choir practice as well as their other activities and on and on the list goes.  I am a mom like many moms, a mom that wears many hats!

Wearing so many hats can be stressful. Don’t get me wrong I would not trade it for the world but it can get overwhelming. So so how does this busy mom find relief from stress?

My husband is wonderful, he goes to work to provide for our family so I am able to stay home and homeschool. He knows that staying home can be stressful so he gives me back or foot massages. Most of the time I have knots in my back from the stress and he is great at getting them out! 




I do not have the stress of shoveling snow or having to bundle five kids up in winter gear. I am so thankful that I live in Florida the beach is only a short drive away.  Sitting on the shore while listening and watching the waves roll in would make anyone stress free. 




Believe it or not writing makes me calm. It is my alone time where I can sit and write on my  blog about everyday life.  I tend to write late at night or early in the morning when the kids are still sleeping. With no interruptions! 




I could drink iced coffee anytime of the day. It is one of my weaknesses and it is a nice way to indulge.  Sipping on a nice cool glass of iced coffee and taking a five minute time out for myself in the craziness of my day is a way I find relief frequently.

Lastly a new way I found to relieve stress is by using RESCUE Pastilles. These chewy pastille lozenges are a wonderful natural/homeopathic option that are alcohol-free and made with natural ingredients. Perfect to keep in a handbag or diaper bag for on the go for stress outside the home.

  44. I listen to a lot of meditation tracks. I also like listening to light classical music.

  45. I’m totally with you on the writing thing! Give me a cup of hot coffee, a quiet room and more computer and that is the perfect stress reliever for me! – katy
