Tips to De-Stress Super Moms

This post has won the Parachute #StressFreeMom Contest

Tips to De-stress your Mom.

Outside the Home:
"Your daughter is still not married. She is already 24"   ~ Ms.Assassination.
"Is your son still jobless"   ~ Ms.Bossy
"You don't own a house yet” ~Ms.Cunning.
"This saree color does not suit you" ~ Ms. Jealous

Inside the Home:
"Mom, Understand. I did not like that groom. I can't get married for the sake of your relatives. And please don’t bring this topic again and NOW' please leave me alone"
~ Daughter
"Ma, Need 1000 rupees and I told you to iron my shirt. You didn't" ~ Son
"You forgot to pay current bill. You do that every time. How many things I can take care of?" ~ Husband
"Sorry ma, my daughter not feeling well. Need another day leave" - Maid
"Your performance is not up to the mark" - Manager @ work.
"Did you get those medicines?" - Father in law
"Your never keep the house clean." - Daughter in law.

Mom is the person where all the family members vent out all the pressure. Isn't?

"Mom are you not fed-up on tolerating our frustrations? Are you not stressed out by cooking and working for us?" I asked my mom once.

Her answer was, "Everything gets wiped out, when I see my children and family happy. I get stressed out only when you guys are not happy."

Mom, she lives only for her family. In her life span, she never gets time to take care of her. She never even shows her pain or illness outside.

A Mother's Life cycle:

In the above life cycle’ a mom does not have time to take care of herself. So, it’s our responsibility to give her that time and distress her.
Below are the five tips to make your mom#StressFreeMom this week:

  1. Give her a break. - Clean your home. Cook and surprise your mom. (Side Effects - Mom will get sick or food poison by eating the food you prepared)
  2. Take her a vacation (Side Effects - all her thoughts would be around her home and house hold duties. She will not enjoy the vacation)
  3. Offer her soothing music (Side Effects - lol, she will never ever open the CD cover. She would feel much happier when you offer the remote during her favorite serial, but again serial would put her in pressure again.) 
  4. Say, "I love you mom" and offer a kiss. (Side Effects -She will get doubt that you did something wrong. Her reply on hearing I love you would be, "What mistake you did now?" "Are you in love with someone" "No, I can’t approve for outing with your friends")
  5. Take her for a walk. (Side Effects - At night - She might need bed rest or her leg must have clotted after walking for so long")
So at the end MISSION FAILED!!!

What is the only feasible, easy, convenient one to #StressFreeMom.?

When she is done with all the cooking and while taking rest follow the below steps.

Request your mom to close the eyes and massage her scalp in deep circular movements and offer her a wonderful rejuvenating oil massage with Parachute Advansed Aromatherapy Oil. This oil contains herbs like Lavender, Rosemary & Bergamot. Lavender is known for Antidepressant properties and it treats insomnia and anxiety. The aromatic rosemary is widely used for healing and purification. It stimulates the brain and improves the memory. The Bergamot oil reduces the body temperature and acts as a good relaxant. A peaceful Massage with these herbs is a proven method to reduce the stress and it will improve the overall mental and physical performance.

Getting a massage from daughter/son would give a double benefit than getting at a luxury spas, since this massage is mixed with love and comfort.
Have you not felt mother’s food taster than restaurant foods?

What are you waiting for? Offer her a long relaxing massage today and observe how deep and relaxed she sleeps today. 

If you want to offer a massage for neck pain or back pain, its better to consult a trained Massage therapy expert.
