  • Meditate, take time to just look outside, enjoy the trees and clouds and mountains, breathe deeply, find inner calm. Connect with my spiritual self, and just enjoy my own company for a moment.

  • We don't really have anyone to watch our kids so I have to get creative. I take a bath when my youngest is taking her nap and I set my oldest down with an activity or a kid's movie. I also take them for walks when the weather is nice. A good walk out in the sunshine is just nice in a lot of ways. I also take them out in the backyard and they play while I just sit down.

  • I take every other weekend to myself! My sons at his dads every other weekend and my dd goes to grandmas. Then its just me and dh and we both love the quiet and down time. We do still have the 17 yr old here but he is low key and doesnt usually want us to bug him so it works for us.
    Other then that my doctor gave me happy pills (Xanax) for the times when I really stress out. I rarely take them though, but just knowing they are there is a stress reliever.
