  • Reading and painting. When my son falls asleep, I get right to it and it just calms my nerves. I love some me time. If I'm too lazy to read or paint- and just need a break from it all. I make myself a strawberry daiquiri and lay on the hammock. That usually helps!

  • Quiet time. Both kids in there rooms being quite. Afterward we all feel better.

    Also having something to do each day. I get out of the house everyday or I go batty. We do play groups, swimming, library groups, YMCA activities.

  • When it is time for me to go to bed at night, I take all my meds and then read a good book for about an hour until the ones that make me sleep kick in. Ahhhh, so relaxing!
