Super Stress Busters

Life is a lot of juggling with kids (though its a blessing) but it can be a lot of fun too. Just need to make simple changes in our lifestyle and it may turn slightly smooth and a lot more happening.

Imagine a situation. Juggling with a deadline at office.... but its the sports day at school also at the same time husband not well and to top it all maid gone to her native place....

Not an ideal situation, but we all go through some taxing situation one or the other way.

So there are some tips which may help us cope up with the day to day stress.


  • Sleep

A sleep of atleat 8 hours a day is a must for every one of us. So please get that adequate amount of sleep and wake up in the pink of your mood.

  • Declutter
Decluttering is therapeutic for a lot of us...If nothing else it helps us stay away from the chaos . Also a clean and beautiful space is definitely soothening. So next time when in stress just declutter any thing starting with your wardrobe, your room, your study table, kitchen or anything

  • Talk to your friends about everything but parenting.
When was the last time you spoke to somebody about your dreams and passion sans the marriage and kids.....?
Think over

  • Meditate

Meditation is calming your senses. It has been proved again and again that meditation do help in self monitoring and cognitive control. So just 5 minutes of meditation a day or atleast 3 rounds of "OM" will do wonders.

  • Plan and Schedule
Planning always take us a long way. So first thing in he morning should be the way you wan to take your day ahead. Trust me even if we achieve 50-70% of the planned activity there would be great level of satisfaction.

  • Makeover
Go for a makeover. It will surely take you away from the guilt feeling of neglecting yourself. There is absolutely no need of big money. Simple steps like changing hairstyle, a nice facial, nail art, a better wardrobe (please please stop wearing your maternity wears after a certain time). You need to feel normal to act normal.

  • Start Multivitamins
At the cost of repeating, after a proper consultation with your doctor please start some multivitamins. Am sure within the first month of having them you feel feel much better and find yourself handling stress more positively......

  • Start an excercise regime
The one who comes with an excuse of time is just fooling herself. So please take atleast 30 minutes out of the highly busy schedule and dedicate it to your self. Am sure you feel bless me for this after some days.

  • Do some community service
I am sure we all are busy or should I say very very busy but even an hour a week will make a difference to the society. So make your pick. Nowadays we see a lot of ad about TEACH FOR INDIA . So if possible please go and register yourself for it.

  • Eat Healthy Food
Antioxidants help fight stress better by preventing free radical damage. So please do away with the junk and consume more of healthy food and include fresh fruits and vegetables and fruits in your diet.


So Lovely Girls (this is the way I love to address us) just go ahead and live your dreams...

COLABA calling.........

Went to Colaba for a dinner, but could not just put my hands off some junk jewellery its famous for.
My favourite two picks are

Elephant bangles (I love the name given to them by my son)

(Rs 150/-  from a junk jewellery dealer near Mondegar cafe')
 
Can't resist myself from posting more pics of it

 Choker neckpiece

 
(Rs 150/-  from a junk jewellery dealer near Mondegar cafe')

This choker will go well with anything from a basic white shirt to a chic salwar kameez. Am sure that it will provide that extra dazzle to us lovely moms.

ssshhh but could not resist the sale at HIDESIGN and eventually picked this nice green bag.


(Hidesign, price Rs 3220.00  on sale)

Hope you liked my shopping.....

10 Must haves for The New Age Mom

Motherhood was never easy. But today it is the most complicated and stressful. Why? As per a survey we are surrounded by a lot of choices. So why not use these choices to our advantage.

After racking my brain and analyzing the change in my day to day life, I have figured out 10 must haves for us and they go as under......

  • A big TOTE BAG


courtesy : http://www.fashion-bombay.com




Trust me, a tote is a life saver with all tit bits starting with diapers, extra pair of clothes, sippers, small toys and not to forget your fav perfume, lip gloss etc. So its a must and so much in fashion. So go ahead and pick one to suit your style.

  • A SMART PHONE
Smart phones are definetely stress relievers with so much to do piled on them. Be it capturing most precious moments of your kids, planning and organising grocery, alarm setters, apps to keep kids occupied, online banking, shopping, paying bills, social networking etc etc
 
 
 
 
  • COMFORTABLE SHOES
I can completely understand the need for you to be on your feet 24/7 and still we neglect the most important part. Our feet. Please go for comfortable shoes as this will take you long. Its not at all necessary to compromise on style as again on the cost of repeting we have a world of choices. Select from sneakers, ballerinas, kitos, crocs  etc and take your best foot forward.
 
 
  • STROLLER
A good quality stroller is definetely an investment. Gone are the days when we went shopping with children on one side and bags on other. Today many strollers are available which will surely make our lives less complicated.
 
 
  • MULTIVITAMINS
Multivitamins, calcium supplements etc are very essential as they help us replenish our resources which are lost much faster as compared to our earlier years. So after a proper consultation with your gynaec/ doctor do start with the ones which suit your requirements.....
 
 
  • HANDY FACIAL KITS
Going to parlours on a routine basis may not be possible for many of us. So what? We are modern moms with solutions to every issue. Why not try some facial kits available for home usage. The results will definetely please you......
 
 
  • A TOY LIBRARY MEMBERSHIP
The toys today are so different from the ones we played with. With a plethora of choices available and space constraints, toy libraries are for sure breathers to modern age moms.
 
The toy libraries do have a lot of choices which ranges from books, cds, musical instruments, educational toys, fun toys. Along with that there are many libraries which provide a dual combination for us and kids.
 
So just go ahead and pick one for yourself......


 
  • CONTRACEPTIVES
Hhhhhh. Should we be discussing this. Of course it is very important to decide on the age gap we want amonst our kids. Also to avoid getting into a not so promising situation one should consider the option with proper consultation with your doctor. I would say it to be a smart investment.
 
  • A GOOD QUALITY PERFUME
What else can pep up our dull mood in seconds.... Hence I dont think there is any need to write much on this.
 
hmmmm smells good.
 
  • A DOMESTIC HELP
Last but for sure not the least a domestic help is our life saver. So try and outsource the job you find unrewarding and devote that precious time to you, your little darling and your family (In this order preferably)

So go ahead girlies and enjoy life to the fullest. Do share your comments and feedbacks to make our blog more suitable to our day to day needs.

And do wait for more posts.

Love you all and take care
