Running around from task to task or constantly thinking about what’s next isn’t a good idea. Every now and then, you need to take a break – it’s good for you and your baby. If you’re feeling in over your head at work, use your lunch break to unwind by closing your eyes for a few minutes and focusing on breathing, or go for a walk. If you’re at home, spend some time on the couch with your feet up instead of fussing over which chores have to be done. If you’re just plain fed up with how your day went, go to bed early and get some rest. If you need to, ask your boss or loved ones for help so you have time to relax.
