Mommy Needs A Break, Not Booze.

As a mother, it can feel like our days never end. From the early morning wake-ups to the late-night feedings, there's always something to do. We're constantly pulled in different directions, trying to balance the needs of our children, partner, work, and household. And throughout it all, we're told that one way to cope with the stress and pressure of motherhood is to turn to alcohol. However, while alcohol may seem like a quick and easy solution, it can be more harmful than helpful. Let's explore why alcohol isn't the answer, and how we can prioritize "me time" moments without relying on booze.

Motherhood can be overwhelmingThere's no denying that. It's natural to want to find ways to relax and unwind, especially after a particularly long day. However, turning to alcohol isn't the solution. While it may provide temporary relief from stress and anxiety, in the long run, it can actually exacerbate these feelings. Alcohol is a depressant, meaning it slows down the brain's functioning and can make us feel even more anxious and stressed out. Additionally, alcohol can negatively impact our physical health, interfere with our sleep, and increase the risk of addiction.

So, what's the alternative? It's important to prioritize self-care and carve out "me time" moments throughout the day, that don't involve alcohol. Take a quick walk outside, a hot bath or shower, enjoy a cup of herbal tea, stretch or do some simple yoga poses. Do something you know you enjoy, even if it's a childhood hobby you want to explore again! The key is to find activities that nourish our bodies, and that help us feel refreshed and rejuvenated.  

You're not alone. It is safe to ask for help. Another important aspect of navigating motherhood without alcohol is seeking support. Many of us feel like we have to do it all on our own, but the truth is, there's strength in asking for help. This can include reaching out to a therapist, a professional coach, joining a mom group, or simply talking to a trusted friend. It's important to have a support system in place that can provide encouragement, advice, and empathy when we're feeling overwhelmed.

Mindfulness and gratitude can go a long way. When we focus on the present moment, we're less likely to get caught up in worries about the future or regrets about the past. Similarly, when we focus on all the things we're grateful for, we cultivate a sense of contentment and joy. Taking just a few minutes each day to practice mindfulness and gratitude can make a big difference in our overall well-being.  It is easy to forget that peace is naturally within us always, we just need to practice tapping into it. 

Motherhood is a challenging and rewarding journey, but it's important to prioritize our own well-being along the way. While alcohol may seem like a tempting escape, it's not the answer, and never will be.  There are so many reasons that it makes sense you may turn to alcohol, and there is nothing wrong with you if you do, or if it feels hard to stop. We get to find healthier ways to relax, seek support, and prioritize "me time" moments that don't involve booze. By doing so, we can navigate motherhood with more ease, grace, and joy. So, here's to all the hardworking badass moms out there – you deserve a break, not booze.
