How do you stay positive?
October 16, 2013 at 3:19 PM

When you are having a rough day... or even just any day.... how do you stay a positive mom? Do you read books, blogs, talk to friends, pray, say a mantra, eat chocolate....?

    Yoga did wonders for me...sadly, after DS hit about 6 months, I stopped practicing and haven't gone back. I miss it and REALLY need it.  Running has taken it's place but I'd love to find balance and do both!

    Talking to my mom always helps. My mom is so sweet and wonderful!

    Calling my 93 yr old Gma helps too!

    I will usually talk to my mom (aka mother-in-law), blog, pray, and eat a treat. I also read a daily verse of the day.

     If I'm feeling low, I think of the things that I have to be grateful for. Good health, a loving family, when you think of the big things, everything else seems inconsequential.

     very true. and when we are honest with ourselves, we have a LOT to be thankful for!
