I have had this post on my mind for months now and I am finally getting time to sit down and type it out.
For those of you who don’t know me I am a very anxious, type A person [I talk about when it really started it here]. I like plans and lists and don’t enjoy curve balls being thrown my way. I have gotten really good at planning for the unexpected but you know how the saying goes sometimes you have plans and God laughs.
Parenting is one big old curve ball every.single.day. It can be very stressful for personality types like mine. I was having a hard time with this and through a lot of trial and error I found that somethings really helped reduce my stress like working out, to-do lists, and most importantly finding the “Yay in Everyday”.
Positive thinking is so important for my mental health and when I was having tough days I would mentally list what I loved that day. Small things and big things really added up and it really helps me remember that the tough moments are very fleeting.
Parenting is such hard work and can be so exhausting. You have to have self care to be a good parent and mentally be on your A game all the time. Giving yourself time to reflect on positive things each day is definitely a key task I need to do everyday to keep my mental health game strong.
So I hope you all can follow along with me as I find the “Yay in Everyday”. I plan to start posting photos on my Instagram that reflect my “yay” in that day! You should join me with the hashtag #YayinEveryday.
How do you find your yay in everyday?
