How To Keep A Clear Head With A Hectic Lifestyle

With the kids, the job, the house to clean and the countless battles, life doesn’t always run as smoothly as you plan it to. We all know the feeling of our blood pressure reaching dangerous levels when trying to get the kids out the door in the morning, dressed, lunch packed and school bags in hand while making sure you get to work on time and put a wash on before you leave the house. And while you might not quite have the funds to book a 3 month beach holiday in Barbados, with a few simple ideas you can make day to day life a little easier and keep the blood pressure in the safe zone.

There is nothing that takes the pressure off like making a plan. Whether it be meal prepping, getting up a bit earlier or booking train tickets in advance, preparing for the week ahead can help you organize your time and feel more in control. The feeling of rushing around and being on a treadmill that never slows down can feel exhausting and leave you stressed out but by just allocating your time to certain tasks and knowing when you will complete them can be highly beneficial. So take out the Tupperware, make a checklist and fill the lunch bags the night before, it’ll save you time and maybe give you an extra 10 minutes in bed in the morning.

Create a calming space

Your home should be your sanctuary so make it into a place you feel you can relax. Whether you rent your home, are looking for houses for sale in Barnet or have found the perfect shared ownership properties in Greenwich, by just adding a few scented candles and fluffy throws you can transform a room into something soothing and bring in a sense of warmth and comfort. Adding a few plants around the home can also make a room feel more spacious and revitalised while improving air quality and making for interesting home décor. So once you’ve got the kids to bed and you’ve sorted out their uniform for tomorrow you can sit down in your cosy cave with a glass of wine and enjoy a bit of me-time.

Don’t sweat the small stuff

It is easy to get wound up over a lot of things these days. Whether it’s the wifi lagging, the kids acting up or someone pulling out in front of you on the road, we can often lose our heads over things that don’t matter.  Getting frustrated can put any day on a downer and affect other people around you so while it may be difficult, try to keep a cool head and think before you lose your temper. By simply taking a few deep breathes and realizing your anger while only affect yourself negatively you can bring yourself back down and approach the situation calmly. Be logical about the things that rile you up and look at ways to fix the problem, for example if the train delays are making you late for work go straight to and find a place that suits you that allows you to walk work and save you money on the trains.

Make time for yourself

Whether it’s reading a good book in bed, having a coffee in your favorite café or watching your favorite TV programme, give yourself at least half an hour a day to do something you really enjoy. Its easy to get wound up in work, the kids and your list of a million things to do but by simply giving yourself that time to look forward to each day where you can simply enjoy your own company and relax, you can make busy days a little easier. Time for yourself is just as important as the time you give to other people so treat it with the same priority and treat yourself to some TLC.
