On to the challenge…

maybe my name should be squirreled Anxiety Mom Challenge.

Saying YES right away to anything, can be hard. I feel like a lot of my challenges are based around saying YES. If your anything like me it can be hard to agree, without first thinking no, oh err maybe next time.

I was listening to brain candy podcast… sometimes I feel like they just speak truth to my thoughts.

Sarah Rice was explaining that our brains are basically hardwired to do what is comfortable.

Even if what is comfortable isn’t the best option. I think Anxiety can really enhance that. You get this comfort level and run to stay where you feel comforted the most.

SO

Today’s challenge is about saying YES, to your kiddo(s).

I have been trying to be more mindful lately, for example, A was getting out of school sun☀️ shining away. It was a beautiful day… finally after a long winter.

She so excitedly… asked if we could go to the playground to play. Hesitantly, I agreed.

Hesitant yes

We spent roughly 20 minutes there and let me just say there were More pros then cons!

Pros

•Both children were happy and more worn out then before.

• Little A could not stop thanking me for taking her and saying yes to going in the first place. (ugh am I that bad.)

• We almost completely beat the going home “traffic“. Really, it isn’t bad but, very little cars going home 👍🏻

Con

I let my anxiety run my life sometimes and said no

So say I CHALLENGE you to say YES to one thing, just 1. That you normally might not do, or would put off saying yes.

Even if it’s a short activity, just say YES and love the gratitude you feel back from it. Anxiety is hard… we can challenge ourselves as parents together!

Did you challenge yourself?

How many of y’all were able to complete challenge one? Getting out of the house!

Now it’s time for,

Challenge Number TWO!!

This is all about getting out there in the blog/social media world 🌍‼️

One important lesson I’ve learned so far with my blog is, that it’s super important to get out there and “promote” if you will… your posts.

It’s good to connect with other bloggers.

Just like a group of friends at home. Like-minded people typically stick together and can thrive with one another.

It helps to have support with a new blog. Commenting on each other’s posts, following each other, learning and taking tips from one another.

So go follow 5 new friends!!

Super simple and can make a big difference!

Once you start following, you might find it hard to stop… extra points for a comment 😉

So go on!

Follow 5 new bloggers

If you’re not doing this challenge with your blog, you can get on Instagram and follow new friends/profiles close to what your niche is. Like 5 Facebook pages , or 5 new Pinterest boards.

Whatever it is, it’s challenge number two time.

Comment one person you followed and I will follow both of you!

Finding your Happiness Friday with ANXIETY MOM Challenge

Finding your Happiness Friday with ANXIETY MOM Challenge

Really it’s Saturday I know guys, I fell asleep before I could post this. I just couldn’t change it anymore, I’m sorry #momfail

Is this you right now…

•You haven’t left the house in a couple of days. Recreationally anyway, “kids.”🤣

•You’ve forced yourself to do the necessities. My thoughts? I don’t think J & A care much about what momma looks like…so, why should I? 

•You’re certain it’ll be a whole ‘nother season, before you make it out with actual adults. those exist??!

IF this sounds like you, then I have the CHALLENGE for you.

Anxiety Mom Challenge

Pin this for later! Stay tuned for more challenges.

Challenge One- Leave the house!

“Bonus points if it’s free or with another Parent.”

We’ve moved, which has forced me to really get out there. On top of, picking A up from her first year of school, standing in line with other parents, and little A making friends.

My anxiety ridden, extroverted, but introverted self, sort-of freaked out!!!

Little A and I were invited to go to the Public library one day after school. The sweetest little one invited her, and of course we couldn’t say no. Baby J, A, and I headed there and truthfully… it was awesome!

They had a pretend grocery store set-up, they had LOTS of other activities, and they even had a sectioned off area for just baby J’s age.

ALL FOR FREE.

So I encourage you to try to get out and do something new with your family. My example shows, it doesn’t have to cost much to enjoy yourself.

Time to
