Effective Ways for Moms to Let Off Steam

Being a mom is amazing, brilliant, the best job in the world, but it can get pretty stressful at times too. When you have very active kids running around wanting to be entertained all the time, a mountain of chores to do and maybe even a job to hold down, it’s pretty difficult to relax and keep your cool and that’s why it’s vital that moms and dads schedule some time to let off stream as often as possible.

If you’re feeling frazzled and you’ve decided it’s time to have a break, here are some pretty awesome ways to let off steam:

Get Intimate

When you’re busy parents it can be tough to find the time to cuddle up and have some fun together, but it really is one of the best ways to let off steam. Apart from the obvious fact that it feels pretty goods, it also enables the body to release feel-good hormones that will help you relax and chill out better than anything else.

Have a Home Spa Day

If you can feel that steam building up, threatening to blow the top off your head, but you simply cannot get away from home, why not turn your place into a relaxing spa for the evening? Wait until the children are all tucked up in bed, light some candles, draw yourself a hot bubble bath, maybe play some classical music and pour a glass of wine, then just relax. It won’t take up too much of your time and you won’t have to worry about finding a babysitter, but it will blow the cobwebs away and ensure that you feel amazingly relaxed for the next few ways.

Spend Some Time in an Escape Room

If you’ve spent so much time playing kids games or reading the same two children’s books night after night to the point that it feels like your brain is starting to shut down, one really awesome activity that could get your firing on all cylinders again is the escape room. If you haven’t heard of them before, escape rooms are an activity-based adventure where you’re locked up in a room, usually for an hour. Around you, there will be lots of clues to find and puzzles to solve that will enable you to unlock the door. Best attended with good friends, it’s a fun way to let of steam and engage your brain and with themes ranging from the kidnap scenario to a creepy haunted house situation, there is really something for everyone.

Write in a Journal

If you’re feeling frustrated because the kids won’t clean up for themselves or because you’re having a tough time at work, a very simple way of blowing off steam is to write up your issues in a journal. Get it all out there and you’ll feel a million times better once you’ve unburdened yourself.

Do Some Yoga

Whether you do it at home or at the studio, striking a few poses, clearing your head and watching your breath is a great way to make those cares drain away.

Time to schedule some mommy time?
