The holiday season,  and particularly the weeks leading up to Christmas, can be full of to-do lists, stresses, disagreements (often petty), and a general feeling of hurriedness. Let’s calm it down.

Quick Ways to Calm It Down: Take a Bubble Bath

Feeling a little hot around the collar? Got some aches and pains that won’t quit? Do you feel like the lady in the Calgon commercial?

Take a bubble bath.

Hit the showers! Or better yet, get thee to the tub. A hot bath or shower can help you clear your head, relax your body, and help you feel a little more human.

It doesn’t take long. An hour would be nice, but if you can’t swing that, grab 20 minutes. You’ll feel better. You’ll be refreshed. And you’ll be a kinder, happier mom.

Need more motivation?

What are YOU doing to keep calm today?

    We’ve been keeping our thermostat pretty low during the cooler months and I have to say, a hot shower has become my happy place every day!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
