The daily run of household work --- especially during school days --- can tire you, moms. Preparing the kids for school in the morning, fixing their merienda for the afternoon, and getting their homework done by bedtime can leave you highly stressed.

Stress is an unavoidable aspect of life, affecting both the young and the old. But to some extent, stress may give you the motivations you need to push yourself a little harder. However, remember that excessive stress leads to an unhealthy lifestyle.

Health specialists highly recommend a stress management plan that includes having time for relaxation to replenish lost nutrients and expended energy. So, the next time you find yourself with a few minutes for a break, try out these invigorating, healthy activities.

Breath in, breath out.
Breathing exercises circulate the oxygen our body needs. Too often, stress can shorten your supply of air, which is why you often feel short-of breath and light-headed when you’re tired. Aerobic workouts have a “cool down” stage to get the oxygen flowing. Breathe in deep to the top of your lungs, counting up to four, then hold your breath for another four seconds; and slowly release the air to a count of four. Do this exercise around three to four times.

Move that body.
Research indicates that there are mental health benefits derived from exercise, including reduced stress and increased confidence. So, get on your feet, stretch your arms, shrug your shoulders, bend your neck from left to right, or go for a walk to change scenery. This may be a short exercise but it keeps your energy up for your various physical activities.

Take a snack.
Pressure can often make us forget about food, which can leave us dehydrated. Pause for a minute and get something to eat. Replenish yourself with a glass of water or juice, or a quick, healthy snack.

Relax with a massage.
Give your hands, arms, legs and feet a good massage by rubbing them with a light fist. Massage eases up tense muscles, improves blood circulation, and restore that feeling of wellness. Make the most out of your massage by feeding your skin with a good lotion.
