  • Realize you've done the best you could by planning for the worst. You can't give more than your best. Chill out with some aromatherapy and relaxing music or go for a walk. You need to reward yourself for all the hard work you have done. Balance is key to endurance.

  • travel^^^What she said. Also don't focus on the negative, keep your eye on the prize/the light at the end of the tunnel. Take some time out of your day just for you. I've found that Valerian Root (I take it in a pill form OTC in the vitamin aisle) helps calm me. Also drink some hot tea. If nothing else, taking the time to drink something hot calms you down. And keep in mind that when you are stressed and panicky, your kids pick up on that.

  • Take a few deep breaths and hope for the best. Enjoy every second of your vacation when it comes.
