Let’s not all sit here and pretend that moms do not get stressed out. I wanted to share some ways all moms can be less stressed out. Here it goes.
Don’t try to do everything
I work full time, have kids, and run a household. Something I learned a long time ago is that women can’t do it all, so don’t try! I try to make sure my kids are happy and the other days my life flip flops around. Of course, my kids aren’t happy all the time either.
Find an outlet
I am blessed to be married to a man that knows sometimes I just need to get out of the house. When he walks in the door, sometimes I am ready to bolt. He knows this and loves this about me! My outlet is literally getting out of the house on some days.
Talk to someone who understands
Know that not all moms are the same. You may have to do a little digging to find moms who can relate to you and that’s okay. Finding moms who understand what you’re going through is important.
Fellow moms, there is a website out there dedicated to US. To help our stress levels go down, there is something known as StressedMommyWine.com. Yes, they can apparently ship wine to your house now and it’s amazing. At the end of the day, you can enjoy a glass *or bottle* of wine specifically made for you!
Now, stop stressing out! Dads and guys out there, we’ve added this to our Gift Guide, so there is no reason the stressed-out mommy in your life doesn’t have some wine under the tree this year. Also, check Stressed Mommy Wine on Facebook and Instagram.
About Stressed Mommy Wine
I entered motherhood with dreams of everything being easy and perfect. What I got was a beautiful girl and a lot of stress juggling a full time job, a commute, and motherhood. I wondered how other Moms did it. They always made it look so easy. I learned that a lot of moms were stressed but didn’t necessarily show it. I combined my love of California Wine, especially the Paso Robles region, and my sense of humor into a wine that shows moms they are understood and appreciated.
