What Moms REALLY Want for Mother’s Day!
Mother’s Day is this weekend and we all have given the standard gift for the Moms in our lives – flowers, jewelry, a heart-warming card and maybe some chocolates as well. But what do Moms really want from their families to celebrate their awesomeness?
According to a recent poll on Parenting.com, the #1 thing Mom wants is…
A CLEAN HOUSE!
Everyone knows that being a mom is stressful, and having a clean house, even for one day, can be extremely calming. An article in homelife.com details research that having a tidy house reduces stress and anxiety. Not only can a cluttered space lead to lower productivity and focus, but overall it can contribute to mental health issues including lower self-esteem (ie not being a good caregiver), depression and anxiety, and lack of sleep.
So roll up your sleeves, find the cleaning supplies and surprise the women in your life with a clean house! And check out these other ideas for ways to celebrate all the Moms in your life.
Sending our warmest wishes to all the Moms out there for a very Happy Mother’s Day this weekend!
