5 Ways to Reduce Stress as a Busy Mom

5 Ways to Reduce Stress as a Busy Mom
Being a mom is one of the most rewarding but also stressful jobs in the world. If you're a busy mom who feels like you're constantly running around and never have a moment to yourself, it's important to find ways to reduce stress. Here are four tips to help you do just that.

1. Get organized
One of the best ways to reduce stress is to get organized. This may seem impossible when you're already juggling a million different things, but trust us, it will be worth it. Spend some time each day decluttering your home and your schedule. If the idea of decluttering overwhelms you, check out my blog How to Create Your own Declutter Checklist.  Create a daily or weekly schedule for yourself and your family so everyone knows what's expected of them. I love using flexible planners like the Simplified to-do List Planner. And don't be afraid to ask for help! Delegating tasks to others will free up some much-needed time for you.

2. Make time for yourself
It's important to remember that you are an individual with your own needs and wants, not just a mom. Make sure to schedule some time each week for yourself, even if it's just an hour or two. Use this time to do something that makes you happy, whether it's reading, going for a walk, or taking a yoga class. Honestly one of my favorite things to do for myself is to take a Stressaway Coconut Milk Bath because it is so relaxing and makes me feel pampered. Taking care of yourself will help you be a better mom and will reduce your stress levels in the long run.

3. Simplify your life
One of the best ways to reduce stress is to simplify your life. This may mean cutting back on extracurricular activities for your kids or saying no to social engagements that you don't really want to attend. It's also important to simplify your daily routine by streamlining your wardrobe, meal planning, and grocery shopping. The less complicated your life is, the less stressed you'll feel on a day-to-day basis.

4. Don't sweat the small stuff
It's easy to get caught up in the little things and forget what's truly important in life. When you're feeling stressed, take a step back and remind yourself that the small stuff doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things. Try not to sweat the small stuff and focus on what's truly important to you and your family.

5. Give yourself (and others) grace
It's easy to get caught up in the moment and say or do things we regret. So take a deep breath, slow down so you can think before acting - even if that means giving yourself some extra time! Use your words wisely because they will stay with us forever. We all make mistakes; let’s just learn from them instead of dwelling on what went wrong (or right!). Remember: grace is something given when someone recognizes their own flawiness without blaming others close by who may have done nothing wrong at all

Reducing stress as a busy mom can seem like an impossible task, but it's definitely doable with a bit of effort. By getting organized, making time for yourself, simplifying your life, not sweating the small stuff, and giving yourself and others grace, you can easily reduce stress levels and enjoy being a mom more than ever before!

Helping You Find Hope & Freedom

Helping You Find Hope & Freedom
When my children were still in diapers (they will be 15 and 17 this year 💔) my husband and I began facilitating Financial Peace University classes at church and in our home. We did this for other as  much as we did it for our own financial journey.

While leading these classes I fell in love talking to people about personal finance and walking with them as they begin to take control of their finances.  

I learned quickly that it is not JUST about the numbers. Walking with them as they took control of their finances was amazing, but watching them break free of fear & frustration, anger & sadness, and shame & regret as they did was the best part. They began replacing all that bad stuff with HOPE and FREEDOM.
It was many years ago that I first looked into becoming a certified financial coach through the Dave Ramsey organization, but at that time you had to travel to Tennessee for the week-long training. As a homeschooling mom of littles, the timing was not right for me to leave home for that long of a time.
Fast forward to 2020, ushering in the covid quarantine and a lot of time to think.. During these months I explored what I really wanted to do with the rest of my life, especially as both my children were teenagers. (they grow up so fast 😭) I decided it was time to take that step and finally get certified so that I could serve more families better! Having walked with with many people over the years I am excited to continue the journey and offer people more hope!

As a certified financial coach, I am blessed with the opportunity to encourage, educate, and empower people to take control of their finances and let go of all that bad stuff so they can find HOPE and FREEDOM!

Stress affects your body, your thoughts and feelings, and your behavior. Stress that's left unchecked can contribute to MANY health problems.
