We all get stressed out from time to time. What are some of your favorite ways to unwind after a long, stressful day? Help other mums with your great ideas. share your tips on the Supamama Blog…..Below are some ideas shared by some mums….

1. Read WITH Your Children

Sit in bed reading with your kid(s)-this will also teach them how to relax …

2. Slow Down and Give Yourself Half an Hour

Find some time that’s only for yourself!  Have a long shower and lock yourself in the bedroom with a great book and sometimes a glass of wine! It’s very relaxing and very quite! Always pray for patience and remind yourself how awesome and blessed you are! But the biggest thing is to slow down and at least give yourself a half hour out of each day and do what you really enjoy!

3. Schedule coffee or tea with Friends

Especially for mums of the very young, make time and venture out to catch up with the real world. Having coffee with an acquaintance can help one realize the untapped wealth of friends you have in terms of their wisdom.  A good suggestion is have coffee with a new friend.

4. Set a Routine

One single mum of kids aged 3, 9, 6 and 1 says that  she got them into a good bedtime routine so the young ones all go to bed at 7pm and the eldest 2 can read or play quietly in bed until 8pm then they go to sleep. As a mother, She has also set herself into a routine that, on most days, everything that needs to be done has been done by the time the girls are in bed so most evenings are “mum time”. She spends some of that time on the computer or watching TV but what relaxes her most is painting (pictures) or reading.

 5. Mummy Nights

Once a month, try having mummy night. That may be a night of movies or meeting with friends …whatever it is, it is away from all children.

If mum is relaxed and happy, everyone is happy.
