Maria | 5 things that help me reset

5 things that help Maria Cannon reset | Swell Mama

1 | Fresh flowers. Sometimes a bit of color, life and beauty in jar is all I need for a little boost.

2 | Morning walks. It's not always easy to get out the door in the morning, but when we do (even in our pjs), it's so worth it. Being outside, moving and breathing fresh air is a daily boost I don't like to miss.

3 | A green smoothie. I know I know, smoothies are all the rage right now but I don't think they're just a fad. They help me get that extra spinach or kale that I normally wouldn't eat, so for me, they're here to stay. Blending up all that goodness in one cup gives me the extra nutrition, fuel and motivation to stay healthy through out the day. 

4 | Moving furniture or rearranging even small decor. I know, weird, right? Something about having things around me organized or changed helps my mind feel organized and energized. Oh and moving furniture builds muscles too!

5 | A big juicy kiss from my baby boy. Being a mom is hard and draining and sometimes I don't know how I'm going to handle one more tantrum or 5:30am wake up call.  But then I ask Parker for a kiss and he comes straight at me with a "mmmm" and big wet one right on my lips. In that moment I'm overwhelmed with how amazing it is to be his mom, how sweet he is and how it is all worth it.
