It’s not quite chocolate…but still pretty helpful for improving your mood.
Ever had one of those days with your kids where it feels like you’ve been snapping at them all day and you wind up sneaking chocolate chips from the pantry and desperately wishing you could fast forward to bed time?
As a work-at-home mom to three kids, I’ve gone through probably more than my fair share of chocolate chips.
Strangely, chocolate doesn’t fix everything and I didn’t want to spend so many days grumpy and then feeling guilty for yelling, so over time, with plenty of opportunities to practice them, I’ve developed my top strategies for turning around a bad day.
It’s nothing magical, and some days I totally have to use a pretend-nice voice while I fume silently to myself, but these strategies do usually work to shift the mood in my house, and I soon find I’m not having to pretend and am back to feeling connected and appreciative of my children.
