Single Mother and stressed ?

It’s not out of the norm that if your a single Mom your most likely to be stressed, unless you have unlimited funds that can allow you to be a stay at home mother and do as you please. However, the average single mother today struggles with how to do it all and be all. We tend to forget about ourselves in the midst of providing for our children while working at not just one, but some women are running from one job to the other! How can a single mother make time for her? Well, here’s the honest truth ……. You must! It’s no secret that stress will cause health problems both mental and physical. You are responsible for you, your well being is the utmost importance for optimal health. It’s time you prioritize “you”. Your probably thinking, ” How can I prioritize me when I work two jobs and tend to my children”? Guess what? The world wont take care of you and all the money in the world can never take the place of your emotional and physical well being. I believe you can not be 100% functional if there is no balance in your life. It’s time you take a look at where your priorities are. If you’re not on the list, put yourself on the list! Make time! Even if it’s 5 min, 10 min here or there then work up to an hour for “you”. Your health is at stake. I urge you to prioritize “you’ somewhere in your daily, weekly crazy stressed out single mother self!  Whatever  you like to do and haven’t done in a long while, do it! A walk, coffee with a friend, bake….. and one of my favorites, SLEEP! Smile, laugh, and prioritize “you”.

About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
