It is that time of year again- back to school. As a mom you are nothing short of Super Woman; waking up early to make their lunch and get them ready for school, taking them to after school activities, running errands at any opportunity you have, making dinner, helping with homework, and the list goes on! It is a wonder how you get everything on the to do list done (well almost everything) without missing a beat. But don’t forget the world has women for a reason and that’s to keep the world spinning around.
Although every day can be stressful and provide difficult and forever changing boundaries, it is important to think about you as not just a mother but a women. This is the time, now more than ever, to do something fro yourself. Whether it is listening to Natalie Merchant and the 10,000 maniacs in a bubble bath while sipping a wine cooler or engaging in a new work out routine.
I am a member of my local YMCA and I do not know what I would do with all my extra stress and frustration without the gym. To me, taking a 3 mile run at the end of a long day is almost euphoric. I know not everyone enjoys this strenuous activity as much as I do and that is why trainers have created innovative ways to exercise and get out all that negative energy pent up throughout the day. This needs to be you time so go ahead, take a Zumba class or Power Yoga. Try out a Strength Training course or morning boot camp (ok maybe that is too much, at least fro me it is but you get the idea). Do something for you this month ladies!
