While this time of year is fun and exciting, I think us mamas also find there is a certain level of stress that comes along with it. We are so busy making sure everyone is going to find what they asked for under the tree, baking for the classroom and holiday parties, attending school plays and recitals, it can be really easy to forget to take care of ourselves. Who else finds that the stresses from the day hit hardest right at bedtime? As soon as I close my eyes and lay my head down, my mind goes into overdrive – making lists and remembering all of the things I should have gotten done during the day, but didn’t get to.
When I feel the stresses from the day are going to affect my sleep, I have a bedtime yoga sequence that I turn to. This yoga sequence can take anywhere from 5-10 minutes, or more if you choose to spend more time in the poses, but even after 5 minutes I’ve found the tension is released from my mind and body, and I can go on to enjoy a peaceful slumber.
It is a beautiful day outside and you want to head outdoors. Being a resident on Long Island we are lucky to be surrounded by such natural beauty. Not only do you get to walk through picturesque scenery but you can capture some amazing photos with your family.
Long Island inhabits beautiful wild flowers, trees, animals and so much more at our local Arboretums, Parks, Nature Preserves and Botanical Gardens. Check out the list of some places to visit with your family, below.
