How Chaos Happens
Every morning you swear to yourself that tomorrow will be better. You’ll prep lunch boxes this evening. You’ll wake up earlier. You’ll have time for some deep breathing exercises so you aren’t stressed and ready to snap the moment anything goes wrong.
But then the evening comes with its own chaos and you don’t get any lunches packed. And your youngest keeps you up past midnight. So the next day you’re just as short on time, stressed, hurried, and despair is sinking in because it doesn’t seem like this will ever be better.
Sound familiar? This was me and a lot of other moms and dads too.
We are barely hanging on as parents. There’s no time for the necessities, let alone self care or even a break to refresh our stamina and patience.
Too many parents have accepted that this is just how it is. They will be living on edge, moments from their own breakdown…until they’re empty-nesters.
But right now your relationships are struggling under the weight of all that stress. And you may even be worrying about the future of your relationship with your children if things keep going this way.
People aren’t meant to put aside their own needs for weeks (or years) at a time. Parents aren’t super heroes. We are human and we need to balance all the parts of our lives so we don’t burn out.
But how are you going to do that? Get some quick tips below and if you need a little more help there’s a workshop you can sign up for too. All the info on that is at the end.
