Tips For Staying Sane If You're A Busy Mom

Being a busy mom with a long to-do list is common these days. There’s a lot to get done and always someone who needs your attention. There’s nothing wrong with having a full schedule, but that means you should work harder to make sure you’re staying sane and healthy.

There are measures you can put in place that will help you find the balance you desire. All it takes is a little modification of what you’re currently doing and a wiliness to adjust your habits. You’ll be glad you did once you see how much better you’re functioning and that your mood is lifted.

Find A Workout Routine that Works for you

You should always make time for exercise. It’s a great way to reduce stress and work on your fitness goals. What’s helpful is if you find a solution that fits your lifestyle like work out box and learn what moves you should be doing to stay fit. What works for one person may not be the right answer for you. Find your groove and then stick with it and witness the results for yourself.

Actively Manage the Calendar

Take control of your personal calendar and the family calendar. You should be organized and know what’s going on at all times. This will help keep you sane and not have to worry about where people are. A calendar will also allow you to see when you, your spouse or your kids are overbooked and doing too much. Document it all and make sure you keep on top of what’s coming up next, so there are no surprises.

Decompress Daily

It’s not enough to give yourself a break once a month. Make it a habit to decompress daily and release all the tension you’ve gathered throughout the day. All it takes is a few moments of peace and quiet, and you’ll be feeling like a new person. Go for a walk, meditate or read a book. Do whatever it takes to slow your mind and collect yourself again. This small tweak to your schedule may be just what you need to be a better person, parent, and partner.

Connect with Others

Be careful not to isolate when you get busy with your home life. It’s easy to do when your kids become your schedule, and you’re too tired to reach out. It’s all about balance and not letting your life become weighted one way or the other. Schedule time with your friends and family members and use them as a sounding board for anything that’s on your mind. It’ll remind you that you have a world outside of your kid’s activities and there are people in your life who care about you.


Being busy is no excuse not to take care of yourself or find activities that you love to do. Stop trying to do it all and work on doing a few items right. Don’t forget to treat yourself once in a while and not take life too seriously.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
