Budget Friendly Stress Busting Ideas for Moms ~ Stress Buster #1 – Be Positive and Express Gratitude!


“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~ Melody Beattie

Sometimes it’s hard to do, but when you start your day in a positive frame of mind and are thankful for the things you do have (and you almost certainly have plenty), it’s much easier to face what the day throws in your face.

Each morning and throughout the day, remind yourself what you are grateful for. Whether it’s your children, your spouse, the roof over your head or the food on your table, you have plenty to be thankful for. Maybe it’s your career, a special friend or a beloved pet. When you remember those little things, you have a much more positive outlook that takes you through the day.

The great thing is, gratitude and appreciation costs you absolutely nothing. In fact, staying positive makes you healthier and probably means you’ll save a ton on Advil and other self-medication. Take a moment each day to remember what you’re grateful for and it makes just about everything else more bearable.
