Take A Walk
Take a moment to get outside and feel the fresh air! A quick walk or simply sitting in the sun for a few minutes can change your mood instantly and give you the pep in your step you’ve been craving (since before you had kids, okay maybe not that much).
Make Plans For The Weekend
Plan to take the kiddos somewhere fun so everyone can look forward to it (a new movie, a fun exhibit at the museum, your favorite ice cream shop). If you are in LA, try City Moms App for fun ideas or search Red Tricycle in your area. Or plan to ditch the kiddos with your babysitter for a night and have a date night or girls night to chill and recharge! We all need those nights too!
