Estimated read time 3 min read

Being a mother can be exhausting on every level. There’s everything to juggle – housework, kids, pets, extra murals and relationships. Sometimes it’s hard to take time to pause and just catch your breath, and do something that lifts your spirits.

Here are 10 of my favorite ways to lift a mother’s spirits!

Be With A Friend Who Gets You

Visiting a good friend who you can be real and honest with is always refreshing. If you need a pick me up, visit a friend and rant or vent and speak about what is on your heart and mind. This will give you some perspective on your thoughts and views, and help release some stress you may be carrying emotionally.

Read An Inspiring Book

Read a book by a woman {or man} who has a story that inspires you, or who writes about having been in a situation you are in. This can boost your motivation and help you feel that you are not alone in your journey.

Hire A Babysitter

Hiring a babysitter and buying yourself peace and quiet will do you a world of good. Take the time to do something you love, that will bring you peace and boost your spirits. Go on a date and reconnect with your spouse, have a glass of wine alone, or take a long bath. Whatever does it for you!

Maintain A Hobby

Take some time out to do a hobby that you find relaxing. Having a creative outlet outside your busy schedule will help you maintain a solid sense of what you love, and may be a great outlet for de-stressing.

Laugh Yourself Happy With Comedy

Find the comedy style that works for you, and get lots of it! Make time often to relax, watch some comedy, and laugh your way to a happier mood.

Try Something New

When did you last do something new and challenging? Taking on a new challenge can boost your excitement and passion levels, and improve your self confidence! Start something new as often as you can, and develop yourself into a more colorful, happier person.

Write A Bucket List

Imagine that you have endless money and free time, and dream! What activities and experiences would you like to do before you die? Dreaming stirs up passions you may have forgotten about, and inspires you to get out there and make exciting things happen in your life!

Get A Makeover

Sometimes all you need in order to lift your spirits is a new hairstyle. Or a pedicure. New colors of makeup. A facial or massage. Whatever form of pampering you love, make time to get out and get it done, and relax!

Set A New Goal

If you feel you are in a rut, take some time out to look at what is important to you and set some fresh goals. Setting goals with time limits will inspire you to work towards them consistently, and give each week fresh motivation.


Taking a nap is a brilliant way to recharge and get some fresh energy. It’s also a great way to calm down, still your busy thoughts and wake up with new perspective.
