It's the most wonderful time of the year...

We made it through Thanksgiving and I hope you were able to manage it with minimal stress and enjoy being with the people for whom you are most thankful. Now the chaos of December is upon us and thinking about managing holiday stress is even more relevant. The irony is that some of the events that make the holiday the most fun, can also cause a spike in stress. Just looking at coolProgeny's guide to holiday activities around town makes my head spin (in an excited, anticipatory way!) Baltimore Holiday Guide I love all the festive events, especially for young kids, but I am also trying HARD to simplify our lives this December and recognize that to do that, we can't attend every fun activity

Thankful

The holidays are upon us! And with that often comes a significant increase in stress. What's supposed to be a time to reflect on the year, think about what we are thankful for, and enjoy time with our families can often end up being a whirlwind of gift buying, food prepping, and running around to dozens of holiday activities and events. This kind of stress can have a negative impact on our mental and physical well being. Some people begin feeling depressed when the high expectations we have set for the season aren't met. Others become run down and exhausted from trying to cram into too much. Doing a little bit of thoughtful preparation can be extremely helpful in managing stress during

It's National Stress Awareness Day, a day to identify and reduce the stressors in your life. Stress: We all have it. We all try our best to manage it, but why is this so hard? Check out my 4 B's of stress management! 1. BASICS-exercise, sleep, healthy eating, drinking water. We all know this is crucial to managing stress, but implementing new routines is HARD! Start with small manageable/attainable goals that are actually motivating. Don't lose sight of the big picture-no one loses 50 lbs overnight. Small incremental changes create overall progress! 2.

You are not alone

10/15/17 Many of you are aware that today is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. Even if you haven't experienced a loss yourself, you probably know someone who has. Miscarriages alone occur in about 30% of all pregnancies. This isn't something people talk about very openly and according to a 2015 study (http://time.com/3849280/pregnancy-miscarriage/) many women feel isolated and guilty after their loss. Whatever phase of mom-hood you are in, it can be a tough journey. If you are struggling with loss, there is support out there! https://nationaldaycalendar.com/national-pregnancy-and-infant-loss-remembrance-day-october-15/

"Mom brain" is for real

10/1/17 Did you know that research shows there are actually changes in woman's brains that increase anxiety when they become mothers? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/…/what-happens-to-a-womans-_n… Science is beginning to study how brain activity increases in regions that control empathy and social interaction, but also anxiety. "Mom worry" is a real thing and it's hard to control our constantly-racing minds to keep track of everything we need to do to take care of our kids. Whether you are a stay at home mom or the breadwinner in your family, being a mom can be TOUGH! Moms juggle so many roles, but with support, I do believe it's possible to develop sills that can help you feel more confident
