How to De-Stress as A Stay-At-Home Mom
Being a stay at home mom may sound like an easy job. Truth is, it can be hard and stressful...believe me I know! It's a full time job, even if you're not a stay at home mom. But through all the runny noses, wooden blocks thrown everywhere, and yup even toothpaste on the mirror...it's worth it all.
Here are some helpful tips on how to de-stress your day as a Stay-At-Home Mom! :)
Dress Up, wake up early to get ready for the day wear something comfortable that will make you feel good about yourself, even if all you do is stay home. If you need to go anywhere you're ready to go. Looking frumpy will only make you feel frumpy.
Exercise, it will make you feel better and give you more energy for chasing around your little one. Whether you go for a ten minute walk around the block, do yoga or simply stretch it will help you to de-stress.
Take Pictures, they don't have to be perfect pictures. The best pictures are snapped when your kids are not even looking at the camera. who knows maybe you can start a scrapbook about how curious your kids were when they were small. I take my camera everywhere, snap pictures then go back and see them and realize i took some good ones.
Put your kids on a schedule, that way they know what time they're supposed to go to sleep each night. This will give you time to take a warm bath and take some time for yourself before you go to sleep.

I have officially joined the "Fight Against Child Abuse" Movement on Facebook. I think it's an awesome cause and I'm so glad that people are stepping up to protect the children of our world, by saying "Hey! This is wrong! It's never alright to abuse a child!" I am all for it! With that said, I, along with many other FACEBOOK Users will be a cartoon characters until Monday, December 6th.
The reason that I wanted to blog about this is because: #1 - I wanted to bring awareness to the issue of Child Abuse
#2 - You have to read this poem! I copied it from the Official "Fight Against Child Abuse" Facebook "Info" Page. It is heart breaking. It really sheds light on the reality of child abuse from a child's perspective.
Below is the copy of the poem. Brace yourself. Like the creator of the Facebook Page said, "This will make you sick!"
Always wishing you Health, Wealth and Wisdom!

"Importance of Kegel Exercises"
Pelvic floor muscles support the uterus, bladder, and bowel. Many factors can weaken these muscles throughout one’s life, including pregnancy, childbirth, obesity, age, chronic cough, chronic constipation, and a genetic predisposition to weak connective tissue. Kegel exercises are recommended for strengthening the pelvic floor muscles in an effort to delay and possibly prevent pelvic organ prolapse.
Pelvic organ prolapse is a condition in which the pelvic floor muscles weaken, causing the pelvic organs to descend and bulge into the vagina. This causes discomforts including uncomfortable pelvic pressure, incontinence, sexual dysfunction, and tissue pushed out through the vaginal opening. The condition is more common amongst older women, but it is possible for a young woman to have pelvic organ prolapse. Some causes of pelvic organ prolapse are vaginal birth, hysterectomy, and menopause.
During pregnancy, Kegel exercises are recommended highly t…
