Writing things down is a great way to release all your feelings. Some people even call it soothing. What would you tell your future self about the struggles and worries you have now? Write something fun to release stress by writing to your spouse or significant other. You can reminisce about something funny that happened to you while dating or an awesome night you had. Talking about a happy memory can make you feel a whole lot better and less worried.

I absolutely love painting by numbers. I cannot paint freestyle, art was never my strong suit.  Finger painting is a lot of fun. Have some wine and go crazy. Youtube is a place you can find a lot of neat stuff to learn.

  1. I started doing yoga for stress and I feel soo much better. I did some adult coloring pages and next thing you know both of my kids were coloring for 20 minutes with me! I really want to try painting, but I’m afraid the little ones will want to do it too and make a mess. 🙂

  2. Love list posts like this. I find anything creative incredibly therapeutic. Yoga has also helped me manage my stress so much better. Now when I’m grumpy (which is less often) my daughter tells me I need to go to yoga.

  3. I have learned yoga and I meditate when I can. Note I said when I can. Does not seem like there is time for much of anything working full time and being a single mom. Music is what keeps me sane most days. Yoga with Adriene is my fave yoga channel. She really is the best.

    1. Yes. I understand that. Music keeps me going too. you have to make time for you too mama! Even if it is just 30 minutes a day. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I absolutely agree to free classes and reading a book! Just got an early copy to Jessica Knoll’s new book The Favorite Sister and I can’t put it down. So fun to just read and relax. Xo, Jessica
