Tired & Wired? Let's Quash the Drama! Mum Hacks & Magnesium for Calm


I want to be talk about the elephant in the room (at times) with mums.... Being a mum is the most incredible thing in the world, but it can also be a stress rollercoaster.

Between tantrums (toddler and teens... or dare I say, adults too lol), endless to-do lists, and that nagging feeling you you just need a good nights sleep somewhere alone on a tropical island (because, let's face it, you haven't woken up feeling rested in... years), it's easy to feel like you're on the verge of a full-blown tanty. I want to put my hand up and say, I have been there too (and to be honest, at some stage will re-visit this place), worn the meltdown t-shirt and wiped my eyes into it too.

I am here to validate to you.... You're not alone! We've all been there, going there or are there! That feeling like we're about to lose our s*1t. The good news is, there are ways to manage that stress and find pockets of calm even in the craziest of days. Here at Salt + Earth Co., we're all about supporting mums and their families, so we're sharing some awesome Mum Hacks for Stress Relief – 

Let's talk about some tried-and-true Mum Hacks that don't take a chunk of time to implement:

  • Find your unwind routine: Maybe it's a hot bath with a good book, a walk in nature with the dog, or a quick youtube yoga session. Whatever helps you de-stress, carve out some time for it, even if it's just 10 minutes. Make it happen. Prioritize you.
  • Mindfulness is your friend: Take a few deep breaths, focus on the present moment, and let go of the worries swirling in your head. There are tons of free mindfulness apps out there to help you get started. My favourite app at the moment is The Balance App which is free at the moment! Bonus points if you can use this app daily with a spritz or 2 of our Calm Magnesium Spray!
  • Create "me-time" pockets: Even if it's just 15 minutes while the kids are watching a movie, take some time for yourself. Read a magazine, listen to music, or do whatever makes you feel like a human again. And don't feel guilty for doing it!
  • Healthy habits matter: Eating nutritious foods, staying hydrated, and getting enough sleep (even if it's a dream!) all play a huge role in managing stress levels. Prioritize sleep. Opt out of watching that Netflix show so you can catch up. Then, when you're feeling more rested, let's add in a Netflix night or 2 a week. 

Now, let's talk about your secret weapon – magnesium!

Magnesium is a natural wonder that can be a game-changer for stressed-out mums. Here's how it works its magic:
  • Natural Chill Pill- that's not a pill: Feeling like you're constantly on edge? Magnesium helps regulate stress hormones, particularly cortisol, promoting relaxation and calming of the nervous system. Think of it as a natural way to hit the pause button on your stress response.
  • Sleep Saviour: Stress can wreak havoc on your sleep, leaving you feeling like a zombie. Magnesium promotes the production of melatonin (your natural sleepy drug) and a more deeper, restorative sleep, so you wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day.
  • Energy Booster: Feeling blah? Magnesium plays a crucial role in energy production. You can't convert food into usable energy (ATP) without magnesium. By incorporating magnesium into your routine, you can power up your energy production and find you get through your busy days without feeling like a deflated balloon.

Remember, you're not alone! We're all, often, feeling the same. Let's share the knowledge, support each other, and find ways to create a little more calm in our crazy, beautiful lives! Don't forget to tag your fav mum friends who need a little pick-me-up!
