The holiday season can be a stressful time of year, especially for working moms who are trying to balance their job and family life. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the tasks that need to be completed before Christmas arrives. But this doesn’t have to be the case! If you take a few moments each day to focus on joy, gratitude, and Jesus – the real reason for the season – you can find peace and step away from the consumerism stress of the holiday season. Let’s explore five tips that will help reduce your stress this holiday season!
It seems like for us moms, we are either exhausted or overwhelmed…or both. We often feel like we’re not good enough and then we begin to allow our struggles to define us.
“I am exhausted”
“I am overwhelmed”
“My kids will never listen, I am a terrible mom”
I want to encourage you to remember that your struggle is not your identity. Yes, you are a mom and you are working hard, and I am sure you are exhausted and overwhelmed but don’t forget all of the other amazing things about you too! You have a lot to offer the world, so don’t let your struggles keep you from reaching your potential. You are worth more than your struggle!
