Anonim

all parents know moments - or even days - of them Overwhelmed: Do not hold a sticky hand under the tap! Do not wash dirty pants! Do not sing ""Hoppe Hoppe Reiter"" again! On such days, you probably want a one-way ticket in the far distance (without leaving an address, of course). Let's take a realistic view: they are probably just burned out. You need a break and time for yourself …

Ten ways not to spin

We asked our readers: What are you doing for yourself? How can stressed mothers relax and regain their strength? We have summarized the ten most common answers for you.

These little escapes are probably not very luxurious for childless people. But even less free time is an important asset for parents and even a little pampering break helps to master the day better.

So, next time you're stressed, try the following:

1) A warm bath

A long bubble bath with candles, music and a good book - that's the favorite relaxation of many mothers. The warm water, the subdued light and the quiet music help. For many mothers this is the right thing to regain strength.

""I tell the kids, 'Mom needs a little rest now, so if you need something, go to dad.' Then I close the bathroom door, find my favorite station on the radio and spoil myself with my favorite foam or oil bath. I make sure that the water has a pleasantly warm temperature (sometimes I drink a cup of tea or a glass of wine). I grab my favorite magazine or novel and then I let myself slip into the water. ""- Debbie Harris

Kay describes other positive effects of a bath:

"" Now that I've had the second child, sex is in the background - sleep is much more important. But when I sink into a bubble bath twenty minutes before going to bed by candlelight, I relax and am more in the mood for sex. ""

2) Pamper Your Body

Cuddle your body: manicure, pedicure, a massage, a facial peel or a new haircut - these were the suggestions of our readers.The benefits are obvious: you will not only look better afterwards and feel better - you can also enjoy being pampered and caring for someone else .

Our reader Gail Martin goes to the massage about once a month: ""It's not just luxury - it also feels good, helps me relax and clear my head.I would go crazy without this timeout. ""

3) An Appointment with Your Partner

A"" date ""with the partner is firstly a break for the parents and secondly an opportunity to get to know each other again! Do not spend all evening talking about the kids! Remind me to remember: your first meeting, your first date, and your favorite memory of being with kids, will make you a couple together in a time when you really need each other .

""Remember that having a time with your partner - and without a baby - actually helps the child. Because you nurture your relationship as a couple and as a parent. ""- Vicki McCarthy

4) A conversation among adults

Have dinner with friends or go out! You experience a disruption of everyday life, gaining a new perspective And you have nice experiences, and besides, you talk to adults.

""My husband or I - we take turns - has a free time and can go out. I go out to eat with a friend or to a concert, to which my husband would not come anyway. Sometimes I even take a whole day off and meet a friend. ""- Francine

5) Healthy Pampering

A walk in the fresh air, a bike ride through nature, jogging on the beach - these are a few Suggestions for a Healthy Pampering Program Dedicate yourself to your favorite activity to break out of everyday life and get other ideas.

A shopping spree and a new outfit or a new hairstyle, our readers write It may be a miracle that you feel changed afterwards.

8) Planting and Maintaining the Garden

Gardening, our readers write, is good not only for the plants, but also for the gardener. The fresh air, the physical work and the rewarding result - a blooming garden!- are a good balance. And you get the feeling of having achieved something while the rest of the life of mountains seems to be made up of dirty laundry and dishes.

""I put two dozen plants on Saturday and I recovered well, I used to like working in the garden before I was pregnant and I hope that now that my daughter is a little taller, I will be back in the garden can design beautifully. "" - Deirdre

9) Time Alone

Many of our readers go swimming alone, take a walk or do something different for themselves. The very fact that you are completely alone will probably give you new strength of resistance and inner strength.

""My favorite pampering program is a day off, then I go shopping and go to a restaurant, if I want to go shopping after lunch I'll do it. If not, I'll go home, rest and watch a video in the afternoon, when the kids come out of kindergarten, I feel great and we still have a lot of fun together. "" - Tina Mann

10) World of Words

Being alone with a good book or magazine is a real masterpiece for a mother. Take the time when it is possible. You will find that books provide a unique little world to escape to when your own life is in chaos. Between the book covers people are waiting for you, who neither bother you with their moods nor demand their constant attention.

""My makeover goes like this: I wait for the baby to rest peacefully in the morning nap, then grab my favorite magazine, close the door, throw myself on my bed, and read each article with relish luxurious way to have a little time for me. "" - Myra
