A few weeks ago while I was in the midst of an anxiety attacked, I started thinking about what was contributing to my anxiety. Besides a bought of postpartum depression, I felt there was something more adding to my anxiousness. I looked around our home, and felt the walls closing in on me, and felt like I couldn’t breath. It was at the moment that I realized that our home had been overtaken with STUFF. This stuff was a headache to organize, and it made it impossible for to keep our home tidy, and it was just unsightly to look at! If you didn’t already know I dislike chores, so having my home like this was too much for me to handle. Though I keep our home clean, I do not like the cluttered feel of the rooms.
I knew I needed to minimize the clutter, which in turn would minimize my stress level. Then it made me think about all of the areas of my life that I could simplify. Thankfully, I have a group of amazing women who have provided me with all of the resources and helpful tips I need to make this possible. I will start a small series on how I am going to simplify my life (and what I have done so far), but this post is a great starting point.
Look below for tips and tricks to make your life more stress free as a mom.
