1. Get the right support system
If you have to find a therapist to help you talk though all you are facing please do it now! You will be less stressed and so will your kids. There are also pastors, counselors and free online help too. If you need more than talk therapy please call your doctor.
2. Try to be as active as possible
When you get out of bed thank God for all you have grab some tea or coffee and try to be active. I do have to push myself to workout daily and I literally do 10-20 minutes a day and afterward I feel so much better. Like I said, I seriously have to push myself to do this, but it’s worth doing.
3. Get some rest
I know you guys are tired and going through some unimaginable things right now. There have been times where I’ve had to take a time out and told Kev I need a time out. That happens like one to two times a year. If you are really overwhelmed let your spouse know if you have a spouse or a family member that you need one day to rest. It’s so important to take care of yourself so you can be the best you can for your family.
