depression tips

Amy's blog, The Little Farm Diary, is just wonderful. I adore her pictures and her stories. This week, she's being real about depression and y'all, it is good. I love how she has hope through her dark season. It's a great read, especially if you've been feeling a little down.

Kelly at The Take Action WAHM is sharing 7 ways for stay at home moms to deal with stress and isolation. I agree with her, you've got to find ways to get out of the house!

Amanda at Intoxicated by Life shares 5 health benefits to spending time outdoors. Yesterday, I spent two hours outside with my kids and I went to bed feeling happy about my day. Sunshine is so good for our souls!

Alyssa at Life from my Laptop shares how to make decisions based on faith. She has some really good scripture in this post that reminds us to look to the Lord when things get tough.

I don't know about you, but one thing that can bring me down is housework. Jennifer at Life as a Southern Mom shares some helpful tips for organizing your household tasks. I need to try some of her suggestions!

The Sensory Mom is sharing about the tough days of parenting when your game face just isn't enough. It's a quick read but helpful if you're having a rough moment with you kids today!

Family Fun Friday is all about connecting as a family. We feature great ideas for family fun, and things to help moms get things done so they have more time to spend doing what they love to do - be with family!
