Single mothers, are you stressed out, overwhelmed, nearing a meltdown, falling apart, yet somehow telling yourself that you are fine until the last straw breaks and you snapped – and you wonder what happened?
Are your muscles tensed, and your head throbbing? Are you experiencing rapid breathing and feeling fatigue? Are you feeling uptight and sometimes (more often than you would have liked) lose your temper? Are you experiencing difficulty concentrating on your work and maybe even finding it harder to enjoy sound sleep?
How would you like to be calm and cantered yet confident and energized, standing in your power and functioning at your best capacity with laser sharp clarity and focus mind? You enjoy better relationships with your children and able to spend more time relaxing and bonding with them. Imagine yourself performing at your peak at home and at work, productive, swift and enjoying your work, having a strong sense of purpose and living in fulfilment?
Tip 1 – Your Breath – Your breath is the essence of your life. Have you noticed how you have been breathing? You breath reflects your stress level and you can use your breath to control your stress. Slow relax breath gives slow, relax lives. Take Control of you breath.
Tip 2 – Your Stress Starts in the Mind, it is how you perceive yourself and the situation around you and your respond to that perception that stresses you. The same event can be stressful to one but not another. Take control of your mind.
Tip 3 – Your Body Is Closely Related to Your Mind – Your body is closely connected to your brain, your mind. When the body is tight and tense, so is your mindset, you become rigid, fixed, unable to adapt and insist on your own views. Shake the tension off your body.
Tip 4 – Your Vision and Your Focus – When you know what you want, when your goals are defined, you have crystal clear focus and direction. You know where you are going and your next step is clear. Stress takes over only if you don’t have focus and are tying to accomplish too much by multi tasking and taking on the whole weight upon your shoulder. Guard your vision and your focus.
Tip 5 – Your Purpose / Mission – Know why you are doing what you are doing. When your activities are aligned with your values, the activities will not seem burdensome. Instead you have a mission and you find joy and fulfilment in doing the same “chores” that you have been doing. Live in alignment with your purpose and mission
Tip 6 – Your Perspectives / Outlook – Life can be heavy and monotonous while we grind through what needs to be done or it can be meaningful and fun filled. You decide how stressful you want your life to be. Choose the perspectives you want.
Tip 7 – Your Environment – Who do you have surrounding you? What words do you hear around you? What behaviours do you see around you? Single mothers, surround yourselves with friends, family, community that nurtures and supports you in your quest to be true to yourself and live the life you want.
