Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question
  • Mindfulness and meditation, yoga, gardening, listen to music or a podcast, read, have a relaxing bath with bath salts, walk along the beach or in a park, writing..


  • I suffer from Anxiety and just now be doing Meditation which is really helping me I just set aside 30mins a day to Meditate and am finding it does work for me


  • Haha … I must admit I do find washing dishes theraputic :) I enjoy sites like MoM for some easy reading and relaxation.


  • Read, nap, a hot bath, putting on ‘peaceful piano’ on spotify and sitting in the sunshine with a coffee doing NOTHING at all. Meditating, going for a walk…


  • Music music music. I dance around a little and/or sing and I find it a great release. Other than that I like to sit down at the end of the day (espeically now it’s day light savings here in NSW) outside – watch/listen to birds, the kids play etc having either a nice coffee, tea, beer or wine (pending the mood I’m in and what I have to do that evening)


  • This is actually my unwinding time, coming on here and getting to express myself. I also like to have a bath, sew, play with makeup or colour in those adult colouring books. I just like doing anything that doesn’t drain my mind too much.


  • Long walks, reading a book on the beach, massage, getting nails done, coffee in a little cafe you have always wanted to go to, bath


  • Read a book, do some meditation or go for a walk


  • Depends on how much time you have but a walk, reading and gardening are all great activities for unwinding and you can do them with limited time.


  • To unwind I have either active or not.. if I need to move I swim or do yoga but if I need to stop and relax its reading or taking a bath


  • I started doing those 3D Diamond puzzles. You don’t need to focus too much and i liked listening to music/tv in the background.


  • We got our first date crate this week after seeing on here as a prize and it was fantastic so fun we laughed and did crafty activities games and had treats such a great night we can’t wait to get the next box a great way to change up the normal netflix evening routine


  • Oops! should read would not what like to to do!


  • It can help to make a list of the things you enjoy doing or what like to do.
    Taking up a new hobby at any age and learning a new skill can be so fulfilling.


  • I like to walk in nature, or read a book while drinking a hot herbal tea.
