This one is extremely important. Exercise is a known stress reliever for many reasons. The first being that it gives you alone time from the kids. If you don’t have time during the day, wake up early or stay up a bit later, but make the time! According to the Mayo Clinic, exercise produces more endorphins, the brain’s feel-good chemicals. It also reduces the negative effects of stress and allows you to focus your mind and body on a single activity. You don’t have to do a strenuous workout, you can do something light and relaxing, such as restorative yoga or a leisurely stroll.
