Make It or Break It… How to Tell Your a Mom Who Needs a Break

Being a mom is a 24/7/365 type of a gig. As most of us know.

But how do you recognize when it is just too much, when you need a break or if you can make it a little longer?

Here’s how I figured this out….

I am a mom of 3 soon to be 4 and I realized I needed a break about 2 months ago. I was taking the kids to school, doing you know, all mom associated duties. Also, running my blog for about a year. Not to mention being on duty most days by myself due to my husbands job and I was running on empty.I was quick to speak and not listen. I was irritable, moody and just wanted to do nothing. Stayed up WAY to late just to get a break.

So what did I do?

I stopped blogging and focused on slowing down. Reading in the morning became my go to and I took a break from all things that were giving me a ton of extra blah.

I even took about a month break from the gym. Which I don’t like because I pay for it and I feel like I am being wasteful.

It’s been about 2 months and I finally feel like I can get back in the game… And here I am working on a new post… BOOM!

I knew it was time for a break and that it wasn’t just an ok I need a night to relax and get some sleep. That wouldn’t help, I needed to rearrange some things and just stop and the best part….
