Take a chill pill

Balancing family and work is always exhausting, so try to prioritise some ME time, even if it's just five minutes a day to recharge your batteries.

  • Reach out for some social support. If you don't have time to call a friend, just an SMS or quick Facebook chat can relieve anxiety and help you feel connected to the world, especially if you've been talking to your 2 year old all day!
  • Put on some music. It might sound simple, but it's a quick way to de-stress. Choose a song you love, with positive associations, like your wedding song, or the first rock concert you went to – anything that'll make you SMILE!
  • Try some yoga and basic meditation. It calms the mind and strengthens the body, plus it's great for stimulating active blood circulation, which boosts your daily stamina. Visit to find classes near you.
