It is exam week for my teenagers in the Lang house and they are stressed out! We all go through stressful times in our lives and when we do, we need to focus on the basics first: sleep, nutrition and exercise. It is so hard to go into a stressful time with depleted tanks. Focus on keeping you well first. It requires you to let go of the 10%s. I will sacrifice a clean car,
a clean house and laundry done for a peaceful mom. It is a lot easier to deal with the stressed out people when YOU are rested and nourished yourself. I tell my teenagers, “I will be a strong support to you this week so you can get done what you need to do.” I have to make sure I don’t give at my own personal cost.
Good luck with exams students and good luck to the parents who are supporting them.
