Stress is a common part of a mother’s life.
Between the demands of kids, house, work, family and friends, there is hardly anything left to give to yourself.
Every self-help book you read will tell you that your need to take care of yourself.
They’ll even tell you that you must take care of yourself for the sake of the people you love.
Yes, more guilt for a busy mother. Now add “take care of myself” to your list of things to do.
It’s important that you take care of yourself but I understand the realities of a modern mother’s life.
Even the busiest mother can find stress relief in her life, as long as she is gentle, human and flexible about her expectations.
I know this because I am also a busy, and (sometimes) stressed mom.
I am Julia Rymut, a single mom in Madison, WI. I have taught mothers to relax with Thai Massage, Essential Oils, Meditation and Yoga. I walk regularly and dance weekly to relieve my stress. When I’m crazy with stress, my go-to therapy is a good walk in the woods.
