Day to Day Stress:
Just the daily task of getting everyone up and out of the door each morning is stressful enough. Then on top of that you have to deal with your job, your boss and fellow co-workers. No wonder everybody is stressed out these days!
Once you arrive home in the evening your day doesn’t stop. You are now faced with getting dinner, helping with homework and doing chores around the home. How can you possibly deal with all of this and keep your sanity? You see it is vital to create a plan of action so you and your family will begin to live more in balance and remove some of the stresses that may cause the mineral loss! This will keep you healthier!
One of the most effective ways to deal with day to day stress is to prioritize things. This includes homework, after school activities and the housework. For example if you can leave the laundry and vacuuming until the weekend then do so. Then delegate these chores to all your family members. Even very young children can be given tasks to do such as putting away shoes in the closest and helping clean things up.
If your child has a ton of homework to do then see what needs to be done first. This will also allow you to help them reduce their own stress levels too. Do the homework which needs to be handed in first. This can also reduce the amount of homework that has to be done in one night.
Look at just how many after school activities your children are participating in. If it is more than two things maybe it is time to cut back. This frees up both your child’s time and your time.
Another important thing to help reduce stress is to make time for the family. Try to plan one evening a week where you do something as a family together. This could be make a real food dinner together, (definitely a way to reduce stress is by eating real food, cooked in your own kitchen) or sit and watch a movie or play some type of game.
When it comes to sitting down and eating a real food dinner make use of the time. Ask your kids and your spouse how their day went. This gives the person time to ‘vent’ if necessary and allows you to discover if there are any potential problems lurking around the corner.
By making time for your family and being aware of what each member is dealing with you can help reduce family stress. Communication is essential and one of the best ways to deal with stress before it becomes a major problem.
