Ideas for decompressing from StepMom stress

Here is some StepMom advice. One thing we all know by now is that sometimes life can be frustrating and sometimes the catalysts for that frustration are out of your control. I found this list while browsing some articles online. Below are some bits of StepMom advice for coping, distracting and decompressing from some of the pressures that come with this role.

These are ideas from StepMoms:


Focus on your career

Go back to school



Volunteer work

Social time with your girlfriends

Turn to your hobbies or find a new one

Focus on strengthening your relationship with your partner and family

Go for walks…long, long walks. lol

Take a getaway weekend or week if you can.

Get a pet. A nice cat petting always helps me.

Read good books

Go to movies in the middle of the day

Take breaks from the entire family
