Even just 5 minutes in the morning can spell a big difference. If you have more time, do it in the middle of the day and before you retire at night. Whenever you can sneak in a 5-minute break, sit down and close your eyes, focus on your breathing and relax. Meditation may also take the form of prayer: saying the rosary, reciting a novena, reading from a holy book, giving thanks for the day’s blessings.

Every mother knows in her heart that despite the complexities of running a household and raising a family—motherhood is indeed the most difficult job in the world—the rewards are so worth it. Remembering this thought also means that you learn to cherish the good with the bad. The kids will only be young once, so inasmuch as it is really difficult most times, these challenging moments are a gift in themselves, too.
