Bringing up children is a full time job with a lot of routine work. Women, who have children and also look after their homes, often do not find time for themselves. They are lost in performing one activity or the other. They have no relaxation resulting in them becoming timid and tired. They develop a sense of irritation and get sick of even small things. Even if something is said by the loved ones in light mood or as a joke it tends to annoy them.
It should be remembered that each person has limitation of the extent to which he/she can be involved in daily routine. Going beyond the limit, even for the sake of the children loved the most by mother, become sickening. As such there is justification for the mother to get some time for her relaxation and personal care.
Next time if you find yourself in a situation where you feel sick, tired and irritated ask yourself about the time when you last had a relaxing break and look for the way to find some time to re-energise yourself. Even if you find no help at hand, still you can think of a number of ways you can take some time for yourself.
First option can be to ask your husband to look after the children, go out for a walk, or to some mall to buy some routine home needs. Also, meanwhile look for other options, namely church or other place where you can meet other people and be on your own. You will find this exercise, may be for a short time, recreating and recharging.
The next best option can be go visiting a friend or a relative living nearby who also have small kids. You can leave your child with them and go for a change. Similarly both of you can decide to swap time often so that both can find time for relaxation.
Often some religious places like a church or religious preachers have arrangement for mothers to attend and learn about the religion. They often have arrangement for the kids to be away from mothers in the company of trained teachers. Here you can leave your child with them to let him play with other children and you can spend time reading or listening about religion. This will be relaxing. Similarly tiny tot programme is organised for mothers with small children who have no other support.
At all places you can find baby sitters or pre nursery school run by expert teachers. On payment, you can leave your child and find some time for yourself. Remember this is a must to keep you healthy and fit.
