I am a mom of four amazing boys, I work tell 11pm I have taken on more hours than I have been I always seem to start getting overwhelmed with house work and finding the time for myself becomes almost little to none because I'm exhausted! I need help with a routine to get more active and stay healthy, seems like I try and I fail!

      I've had to learn, esp when I get overwhelmed by household responsibilities (adulting sucks 😂), to put my self care first. In order to properly take care of others and my house, I need to take care of myself. I've had to intentionally schedule our block out time where I could to just relax and not worry about the dishes or the laundry, etc. I've had to lower my standards, too. I'm a perfectionist and always need things to be perfect the first time haha so I've had to accept getting things only a little clean. It's hard, but so important for our own self care. As well as giving ourselves grace.

      Are your boys old enough to help with chores?
