Top 3 Tips on How to be a Happier Mom & Subsequently a Happier Grandmom

By:  Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo

Editor’s Note:  We grandparents witness first hand how being a mother can bring stress into a woman’s life, which in turn may cause unhappiness or discontent. With these helpful tips, Dr. L aims to help those women who are struggling with their happiness.

The top 3 tips to being a happy mom are:

1)    Jump on the bed: dance around the house, race your kids to the car.  Any type of exercise will boost your happiness

2)    Be assertive: don’t wait for your children or partner to ask how they can help.  Delve out the responsibilities

3)    Be grateful for all that you do and all the positives in your life.  Research shows that gratitude is the quickest and longest lasting way to achieve happiness
