Parenting: Mom's Guide To Stress-Free Living

You go to sleep exhausted and you wake up tired. Your "to-do list" is way too long. Your commitments, as well as your laundry and bills are piling up, but your enthusiasm and energy keeps declining.

You feel like you're simply going through the motions in an effort to make it through the day, not really living or enjoying your life because you're a ball of jangled nerves.

Have you ever driven to the grocery store or work without ever noticing anything on the road, or even realizing how you reached your destination in the first place? Have you ever tried read a page from a book and realized that didn't even remember what you've read? Is your mind so overwhelmed with parenting, school schedules, extra-curricular activities, financial worries, meal preparation and managing a household that you feel hopeless, frazzled, anxious and stressed to the breaking point?

Do the day’s stresses and anxieties crowd your mind when you're trying to wind down for a night of peaceful sleep?

Do you feel stressed about being the best mother you can be and aren’t sure how to find a balance between "doing it all" and managing you own stress? If you've answered "yes" to any or all of these questions, this book will be your salvation.

In this book, mother and registered nurse, Summer Accardo, RN, a stress-management expert, reveals groundbreaking strategies, tips and tricks on living a stress-free life, while taking care of your kids, working and managing a household.

This ultimate parenting guide is based on the highly popular stress management programs offered at many teaching hospitals and Summer Accardo's own experience counseling thousands of new and experienced parents on how to master a stress-free life based on science and fun!

You know that you deserve a more fulfilling, less stressed live, and with this book, you will know exactly where to start. There's even a special section on peri-menopause, that can start as early as 30 in some women.

Being peri-menopausal and trying to be a great mom can really be challenging, and if you're experiencing overwhelming stress and anxiety that seems to come out of nowhere, it may be related to your hormones!

Doing Too Much Can Lead To Panic Attacks

As a registered nurse I have been able to help hundreds of moms overcome the misery and devastation of anxiety and depression through the latest cutting-edge research on natural, holistic, alternative and complementary anti-anxiety treatments. Many of my patients were new parents who didn't have the tools or knowledge to effectively deal with the new stressors that accompany parenthood.

The strategies, tips, tricks, recipes and healing suggestions you are about to read in this book may be just as effective, or even more effective than prescription anti-anxiety and antidepressant medications, and without the side effects or expense.

Stop living your life in fear and dread. This ultimate guide to anxiety relief is going to help you achieve a better life filled with happiness and hope, and without intrusive, frightening thoughts that are consuming your life right now.

This book does not contain a lot of medical or psychological jargon. It is not meant to be overly technical, nor does it delve deeply into the mechanics or physiological reasons for anxiety disorders and depression.

What it does do, however, is provide you with highly effective tips, remedies, treatments and lifestyle modification suggestions that will help you overcome your anxiety, panic attacks, depression and fears about your parenting skills and life in general so that you can live a happier, more peaceful life.

Do not let your fears, depression or general anxiety disorder (GAD) stand in your way of living a productive, pleasant life, and being a better parent. You can take control of the situation, and change your negative thinking. Just as you've trained your brain to think about negative, anxious thoughts, you can train it to think about pleasant, peaceful thoughts that will eventually crowd out the bad thoughts.

It's not as difficult as you may think. If fact, there are a number of things that you can do, right now, to help those negative thoughts about your health fade away. That's right! Your intrusive thoughts about your fears and insecurities will simply fade away. In fact, you will probably even get bored with them, eventually. Can you imagine that? It's true, so have faith, and read on!

How To STOP Excessive Worry

Excessive worry and general anxiety is intrusive to your life and can be crippling. There is good news, however. Lots of good news, so take heart.

Did you know that you can crowd out your negative thoughts with positive thoughts? Just as you've trained your brain to respond to scary situations that are beyond your control, you can train it to respond to pleasant thoughts of calmness, strength and well-being.

I know it sounds too good to be true, but it can be done. This is not to say that you shouldn't seek professional help if your thoughts are so intrusive that they prevent you from functioning on a day-to-day basis. You should. I wrote this book simply to help people who struggle with general anxiety disorder, panic attacks and health anxiety, but who are still able to work, take care of their families and look after themselves.

General anxiety disorder, panic attacks, hypochondria and health anxieties may be linked to depression. Research has shown that people who are depressed have lower levels of serotonin in their brains, and this may hold true for us worriers and hypochondriacs. They key to helping us feel better may be to raise our levels of serotonin and other "feel good" chemicals known as endorphins.

Antidepressants raise levels of serotonin, but did you know that certain foods, dietary supplements, vitamins and minerals can do the same thing? So can exercise.

Although generalized anxiety disorder, depression, panic attacks and hypochondria are very common, little is still known about the cause and effective treatments. Hypochondria, a form of generalized anxiety disorder, is a preoccupation with one's health. The person with hypochondriacal fears believes he has a serious disease, when none is present. Up to 4.5% of the general population may be affected by this ailment, and people with hypochondria may have a higher rate of depression and anxiety.

People with this condition are almost always consumed with fear that interferes with personal relationships, happiness and work. Hypochondria makes people misinterpret their normal body sensations, and have a persistent fear of serious disease despite repetitive reassurance from their health care providers. Some hypochondriacs, because of their paralyzing fear of "getting bad news," avoid going to the doctor altogether.

Although the exact of hypochondria is unknown, a disturbance in one's perception, which makes normal sensations feel abnormal, may play an important role. Also, people suffering from hypochondria may believe that a specific illness may be due to an imagined or real wrongdoing from their past. It may also be a learned behavior in those who have had a serious childhood illness that brought about an abundance of attention.

It may also be related to obsessive compulsive disorder as well. Risk factors for hypochondria include having a family history of the disorder, having a serious illness as a child, recent or past stressful events, having mental disorders such as depression, anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder.

Medications such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), may improve your symptoms, and include paroxetine, sertraline, fluvoxamine and fluoxetine. Antianxiety medications such as Xanax, Valium, Buspar and Klonopin also help with symptoms, and also help keep panic attacks at bay. Antianxiety medication, however, are generally prescribed to be used during the acute phases of your anxiety attacks.

These medications are highly addictive, and become less effective over time. Because they become less effective, people tend to increase their dosages. This can lead to dependence, and withdrawal symptoms when trying to discontinue the medication. Side effects from antianxiety medications include drowsiness, dizziness, dry mouth, urinary retention, confusion, dizziness, low blood pressure and itching.

Psychotherapy helps people identify those specific thoughts that add or contribute to their anxieties about illness, and help correct their misinterpretations of abnormal body sensations. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps teach individuals to focus less on intrusive thoughts and their fears of illness, and to utilized distraction and relaxation techniques instead.

Behavioral stress management teaches people how to become less focused on their health during times of stress. This type of stress management can be used in conjunction with cognitive behavioral therapy.

Alternative and complementary therapies may also play an important role in the treatment of hypochondria and generalized anxiety disorder. Acupuncture helps promote relaxation, and mindfulness therapies such as meditation are effective in the management of symptoms.

Nutritional is also thought to play an important role in the management of hypochondriacal and depressive symptoms. People who experience frequent bouts of anxiety may benefit from limiting their intake of caffeine and alcohol, and eliminating processed foods from their diets.

Avoiding suspected food allergens such as milk, eggs, ice cream, cheese, corn, soy, wheat and preservatives may significantly improve your state of well-being, subsequently reducing episodes of obsessive and intrusive thinking. Also, consuming foods rich in iron and B vitamins such as dark leafy greens, whole grains (only if you don't have a wheat allergy) and plenty of fruits and vegetables may also help soothe your nerves.

Eating antioxidant-rich foods such as tomatoes, blueberries, squash, cherries and bell peppers, and avoiding sugars, pasta and white bread may also result in a decrease in your hypochondriacal thinking. Furthermore, when your blood glucose levels are unstable, it can worsen you mood, leading to negative emotions and thoughts about your health.

To counteract this, eat small, frequent meals during the day, which will help stabilize your blood sugar levels, enhance digestion and improve your mood. Limiting your consumption of red meat, and incorporating cold water, omega-3 fatty acid-rich fish into your diet may also help keep anxiety away and reduce your negative thinking. Olive oil is also a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been proven to stave off depression and anxiety.
