Thanks so much for reading / commenting / for your unsolicited promoting :) You are totes right about sleep… I can’t function without it. I think it makes it easier to manage everything when – once you have your lipstick / big girl pants on – you bust your ass and do the best you can every day, then call it at a certain time. E.g., 7pm. Or when you think you might fall down. And then turn it off, have a glass of scotch :) – or workout or whatever – and then make your to-do list for the next day and putcherself to bed. I think a lot of my stress / everyone’s stress maybe comes from the fact that we’re NEH-VER unplugged. Ye know? LIke, I can’t delineate b/w work time and home time anymore, cuz we’re all so connected and when you know you CAN work from home and when you know people know that you can see the emails they send at 10pm, you feel obligated to, well, work. It’s terrible I tell ya 😉 Matt and I just made a rule that cell phones go down after about 7:30 at our house…

And I kinda love it already.

xx!
Steph

You’re an absolutely genius here. I love all of these and I too live by my lists. Who knew taking a hot minute to write some stuff down on a post it note could compare to the “calming” affect of drowning a glass of scotch? Not kidding you…the other day I took your lipstick advice and felt like a rockstar walking into Marsh to grab some bananas. All I could think was, “Yeah…I’ve got the monthly breakout of the century all over my face right now…but this Bobby Brown lipgloss is a total boss right now!”

I think you nailed some of the best tips here. Another necessity when life gets to be a bit too much…sleep. Sleep is SO important and as we’ve hit our thirties it becomes more and more obvious (and I suspect that will only continue). Sometimes it’s like the “chicken or the egg concept” though…hard to sleep when you’re stressed…hard to not be stressed when you don’t have enough sleep. Constant battle.

You girls rock and I can’t get enough of covetliving.

Mel

It’s the best present you can give yourself and others get a small piece of you with a bow on top.

What was it about last week that shot me down the meno-manic spiral? Mushhead Cry-Baby from Hell! You really touched on all the important points. My dad always said: Everybody has at least one good reason why they can’t get out of bed, and probably another that keeps them from leaving the driveway. Tolerance and perspective. James Taylor. A good bellylaugh w/a good pal. When a stranger’s baby smiles at me. My nephews’ voices. Put on your fav lipgloss, walk down your Main St., and breathe.

Although you will have the smell of babies’ heads and their hugs to add to your coping mechanisms. I personally rotate between either a) decaf constant comment tea and a calming lavender bath (calming option), or b) a dose of mindless reality TV w/ a saucer full of chocolate and pretzels (uplifting option) as other post-kids-bedtime rituals.
