Stressed? Family Love and Laughter Will Help

Life sure can get hectic!Family Love

Between work, school, sports, and home responsibilities,  it’s easy to forget what’s most important.

Family love and laughter will help reduce your stress level significantly. Here are some tips:

  • Get organized

Often times, people think they’re busier than they really are. Figure out how much time you are actually “busy.” Prioritize which things need to get done first daily, weekly, monthly. Be sure you schedule time to have fun every day!

  • Change your way of looking at the stress

Doesn’t it seem like “When Mama’s not happy, nobody’s happy”? If you are constantly stressed, it may be an indicator, telling you to slow down a little and focus on the things most important to you. Life is about living in the moment and having a ton of fun! The longer you feel down, you attract more things to stress about.

  • Priceless Pictures

The picture above is of my husband playing with our children. It brings a smile to my face every time I see it. If you are having a rough day, take out your favorite photo of your family and immediately, you will begin to feel better.

  • Quality time

Being a mom consists of many roles:

Artist, Baker, Banker, Caregiver, Chauffeur, Cook, Counselor/Psychologist, Dancer, Dentist, Dietician, DJ, Doctor, Fashion Director, Finance Analyst, Gardener, Historian, Interior Designer, Janitor, Launderer, Maid, Marketing Director, Moderator, Nurse, Party Planner/Coordinator, Personal Shopper, Photographer, Plumber, PR, Referee, Role Model, ”Sanitation Engineer”, Seamstress, Secretary, Singer/Musician, Storyteller, Stylist/Barber, Tailor, Teacher (list provided by http://www.momaroo.com/703326826/roles-of-a-mom—what-are-yours/).

You may not have hours to devote to playing with your children, but be sure to schedule around 30 minutes/day to give your undivided attention to them.

  • Make traditions

Come up with ideas you can do with your kids on a daily basis. Every time my kids and I pass by a particular glass building in the car, we wave at ourselves in the reflection. On our way home, we count down, “5, 4, 3, 2, 1, BOOM! We’re in Valley Center!” when we reach the city “Welcome” sign.

My husband and I have made it a tradition to hug, kiss and smile at each other at least once/day. Some days, that’s all the time we have for each other, but it means so much to both of us.

  • Learn from your children

Children are our teachers. They show us that life is about having fun and to live in the moment.  Respect them, guide them, encourage them, and they will be open to sharing their life with you.

And, always remember to get “Goofy”!Family Love

Much love to you,
