You know those days when nothing seems to be going right and you’re just in a funk? …One of those days when you stay in your pajamas ’til noon and you’ve been subsisting on granola bars and string cheese and then when you finally do get a second to change into real clothes your baby barfs all over you?
You stop and wonder: “What happened to my life?”
I call that feeling I get on those days a “case of the moms” It’s kind of like the blues, but it happens when you have an unhappy baby and are feeling stressed out, tired and frumpy.
Sometimes, I need a jumpstart to pull me out of it when I have a case of the moms, and here is what I do to get it…
Buy yourself flowers 1 of 6Nothing brightens up a room and my mood more quickly than pretty flowers. They don't even really need to be store bought - picked from the backyard is just fine with me too.
Paint your nails 2 of 6Painting my nails feels like a little indulgence and even though I'm pretty terrible at it, it never ceases to make me feel a little bit more polished... pun totally intended.
Go for a walk 3 of 6Fresh air and endorphines flowing = instant frump buster.
Do your hair 4 of 6If you have a second during nap time take some time to do your hair and maybe even try out one of those tutorials you've pinned on Pinterest. Who knows, you just may discover the perfect cure to a bad hair day!
Dab on some lipstick 5 of 6Brightly colored lipstick can make me feel immediately more pulled together. Frizzy hair? Baby puke on my arm? It's ok. If I have lipstick I can take on the world.
Drink up 6 of 6Coffee can make anything better...at least I think so. No matter how bad my day is, a moment of quiet and a cup of coffee can help me see the light at the end of the tunnel.
How do you combat a “case of the moms”?
