Stress Management for Parents

Trying to pursue a busy work schedule whilst maintain a family and social life can leave you feeling overwhelmed and caught a vicious cycle of stress and worry.  With technology moving ever faster, we are struggling to adapt and instead of our lives being made easier, we are more under pressure to keep up.

Stress Management For Parents

ral, remaining calm under pressure isn’t always easy. Constant mental stress keeps our body in constant tension which itself becomes a form of stress.

If you find keeping up with your busy life is taking its toll on your emotional wellbeing then ensuring you take time out to relax and re-charge, rather than forcing yourself to keep going is essential.  Creating calm is also about changing your mindset.  Most of us are too busy thinking about our ‘to do’ list, without even being aware of what’s happening in the ‘here and now’.

We can handle stress by learning to cope with thoughts and events so they no longer are stressful. Learning a technique such as Cognitive behavioural Therapy can enable this process. CBT enables you to gain a different perspective on your situation and learn new coping strategies to manage stress more positively.  We can also learn to relax. When we practice relaxation, we are giving the “all clear signal.” As we become better at giving the signal we are able to trigger the relaxation response so our body will return to its normal state. 

Parents need to take care of their own emotional wellbeing as well as their children’s, and find social support for themselves and their family.

Mother’s especially are so busy taking care of everyone else in the family, they often put themselves last on the list—or leave themselves off the list altogether! However, since the rest of the family relies heavily on you, learning to value yourself and manage your stress better is important.

Seeking help independently from a professional is the first step towards creating the positive change you desire; whether that’s losing weight, reducing stress or just learning to make time for yourself as well as your family.
