For many 2012 was a slowing moving blur and for others it flew by at warp speed. For some 2012 was filled with 60 hour work weeks; play dates; taking the kids to lacrosse, basketball, soccer or football practice. We chased our little ones through the mall, endured a visit from the mother-in-law, and tried to decipher 5th grade geometry. Well, you get the idea. The life of a fab mom can be stressful and the stress can be consuming. With that said, let's try to take time to de-stress in 2013. Sometimes it's a matter of listening to our inner voice. For example, I enjoy laying in bed watching a good movie by myself. I also enjoy quiet moments with my husband doing absolutely nothing...just knowing that he is close by relaxes me. In addition, I have had a love affair with the elliptical for awhile now : - ) I love spending time with my family. However, I accept that I also need time to nurture my own needs in order to care for theirs.
How do you de-stress?
