Hello everyone and welcome to this week’s Brilliant Blog Posts!
I’m sat writing this post with a poorly little munchkin curled up on the sofa next to me. My youngest, Xander, has been ill this week with a bad cold and sore throat, so I’ve been taking care of him while also frantically making deadlines whilst he slept or watched cartoons.
Juggling a career and parenthood can be overwhelming at the best of times. Throw caring for a poorly child into mix and you’ll want to be reaching for wine before breakfast (is it OK to pour Prosecco on your cornflakes instead of milk?).
But feeling overwhelmed is a natural reaction to life. We’re human, not X-men/women, we all experience stress and believe it or not, it’s actually good for us in moderation. The key is how we manage it.
This is why I wanted to share with you my top tips on how to cope with feeling overwhelmed and I’m linking to this post for this week’s Brilliant Blog Posts.
From going for a run to meditation, I’m sharing the tactics that work for me as well as some top tips from my fellow mumbosses. I hope you find the post useful and I’d also love to hear from you on how you manage stress and feeling overwhelme too.
This week, I’m also linking up to my recipe for gluten-free dark chocolate coconut bites. If, like me, you’ve been on a January health kick, then you are going to LOVE LOVE LOVE these! Sweetened from the dark chocolate, honey and Medijool dates, they’re a (slightly) healthier alternative to a standard chocolate bar but taste just as delicious!
