As the pandemic continues, stress has become a part of our daily lives. Many moms worry constantly about their families health, school outbreaks and struggle with decisions regarding their children’s well-being. Here are some simple sanity savers to help minimize stress and help make your days a little bit better.
Five simple sanity savers for Moms
Put the kids for a nap or older ones down for a movie ‘rest’ time and call your best friend for a chat. There is nothing better than hearing someone’s voice and sharing a laugh and with your best friend during the day. It’s so much better than texting.
Plan a ‘girls night’ via Zoom. After the kids go to bed, pour your favourite glass of wine or mix a drink and catch up with your besties you haven’t seen in awhile. It’s not the same as an in-person girls night, but at least you can keep in touch and see each other.
Online shopping has been available for many years, but more companies are now offering this option. This is so great for moms who need to buy something and want to avoid taking kids into shopping centres right now.
Grocery shopping with kids can be very overwhelming for many moms, especially moms with young kids who like to touch everything or babies who put everything into their mouth. With grocery delivery and pick-up options readily available this is one sanity saver to help make your day a breeze.

This is a mega sanity saver for mom if the day has been a crazy one and cooking dinner is the last thing on your mind.
This has been a tough 10 months for all of us. Hopefully these sanity savers can help brighten your day.
