Take a chill pill
Balancing family and work is always exhausting, so try to prioritise some ME time, even if it’s just five minutes a day to recharge your batteries.
- Reach out for some social support. If you don’t have time to call a friend, just an SMS or quick Facebook chat can relieve anxiety and help you feel connected to the world, especially if you’ve been talking to your 2 year old all day!
- Put on some music. It might sound simple, but it’s a quick way to de-stress. Choose a song you love, with positive associations, like your wedding song, or the first rock concert you went to – anything that’ll make you SMILE!
- Try some yoga and basic meditation. It calms the mind and strengthens the body, plus it’s great for stimulating active blood circulation, which boosts your daily stamina. Visit http://www.findyoga.com.au/ to find classes near you.
