Stress Management Tips For Women

Jun 7, 2008
Does this scenario sound familiar to you?

The kids are screaming, the pot is boiling over on the stovetop, and the telephone is ringing off the hook. On top of all of this, you have to run errands and pay the bills. Some of these things demand your attention right now, but there's only one of you and you only have two hands to work with. Are you one of the many moms that fall into this trap?

Stress gets out of control when we respond in an unfavorable way to the situations in our lives. Ignoring stress or the symptoms of stress doesn't help anything, actually it makes things worse. Without some kind of release, the stress will continue to pile up within us, until your lid ultimately blows. BANG!

In order to keep the lid where it should be, you will need to relieve some of your stress. Here are some tips for stressful moms to use to keep you from losing your mind:

Schedule your day as much as possible- Try to start the day with a plan of action. No one can account for all unforeseen situations, but if you have a basic plan of how your day will go, you will at least have a fighting chance. Lists can be your friend. When you can visually see what all you need to get done for the day, you have a better chance of scheduling those tasks in. Scheduling can help your day go smoother.

Get up a little earlier each morning- This can be to get more tasks done or to just take some quiet time to yourself before the rest of the family gets up and the day gets started. Sometimes, an extra 20-30 min. each morning can make a world of difference to your family and your sanity.

Give your mind a break each day- If you can, try to pencil in 15 min. or so every day to do some kind of relaxing activity. You could perform yoga, meditate, read a book or just sip your coffee and check your email. This helps your mind recharge for the next stressful situation that comes along.

Let it all out- Most moms practice pretty good composure in all situations, but sometimes you need to let out your frustrations. Get together with some friends and leave the children with their dad or family member. Vent your problems to your friends without worry of spewing bad language in front of your children or scaring them with your anger. Venting is a good stress reliever.

Stress management tips are designed to equip moms to deal with the unpleasant situations in their day. The key to keeping a level head is to find ways to relieve your stress throughout your day instead of letting it fester within you until you can't take it anymore. Use these tips to manage your stress and keep a more positive outlook on your life.
