Parenting can be a difficult and stressful job. Here are some tips to help reduce your stress and make the parenting journey a bit easier:
.

Make Time for Yourself: Take some time away from parenting duties to do something that brings you joy and relaxes you. Whether it’s reading, watching a movie, going for a walk, or anything else, it’s important to make time for yourself and your own well-being.
.

Ask for Help: Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. Whether it’s from family and friends, or professional help such as therapy, it’s okay to ask for help when parenting becomes stressful.
.

Practicing Mindfulness: Mindfulness can help you stay in the moment and be more aware of what’s going on around you, which can help reduce stress. Try taking a few moments each day to practice mindfulness and be present with your thoughts and feelings. For me journaling is good for this.
.

Connect with Other Parents: Connecting with other parents can help to reduce stress and provide support. Look for support groups, online forums, and other resources to connect with other parents. (Join us at our @le16.ladies events)

Take Care of Your Health: Taking care of your physical and mental health can help reduce stress and make parenting easier. Make sure to get enough sleep, eat healthy, exercise regularly, and reduce alcohol
