Are you a busy mom with kids? Do you like every day to be structured and ordered? After all, you believe that children cope better when they are in a structured routine, and they know what is expected of them. You also manage your day more competently if you stick to your routines. In order to make your life more manageable, you have purchased the correct household appliances to get through every day.
For example, you have high achieving kids who excel at their academic studies as well as all the different sports that they play. Consequently, your washing machine and dryer are constantly on the go, washing kids’ clothing, bedding, sports gear, and other sundry items. All you need to do is to sort the washing into piles according to colour, fabric, and specific washing instructions. The next step is to set each pile to wash in the washing machine. Once a particular washing cycle is complete, the wet clothing needs to be transferred to the dryer, and finally, once the dryer has finished drying the clothing, they need to be shaken out, folded, and packed away.
Unfortunately, some days to not pan out as you expect them to. It’s easy to forget that children are human beings with their individual personalities, quirks, and interests, etc., household appliances break, and you can fall ill; ergo, sometimes life throws curve balls at you. How do you deal these daily challenges?
Solving the daily challenges
In my experience, the answer is simple – deal with one crisis at a time. Here are some tips on how to solve your crises:
This is probably the most important point. If you are stressing and panicking about the particular crisis that you have to solve, you will more than likely not be able to think clearly to find a solution. Breathing is a well-known and accepted way of calming down and allowing yourself to think.
According to WebMD.com, “deep breathing is one of the best ways to lower stress in the body. This is because when you breathe deeply, it sends a message to your brain to calm down and relax. The brain then sends this message to your body… [your] increased heart rate, fast breathing, and high blood pressure, [will] all decrease as you breathe deeply to relax.”
Decide how to approach the problem
For example, if one of your household appliances breaks down, for instance your washing machine, contact an appliance repair service to come out and have a look at your washing machine. These repair technicians carry a wide range of spares with them which will allow them to repair your machine on site. Should they have to take your machine back to their workshop, ask about a loan washing machine. Most repair companies have a range of household appliances that they loan out in cases where they have to take your machine away.
Due to our hectic, fast-paced lifestyles, it is easy to become overwhelmed by all of life’s challenges; however, it is possible to slow down amidst the chaos, solve the issues one by one, and finally, enjoy yourself.
