What do you mamas do to relax?

I’m curious to see how other mamas do to relax at night! Especially after a long and stressful day. Between teething with my little one and my other one being hyper as all get out, my nerves are shot. And I’m just curious to see how other mamas relax at night to help calm their nerves.


Beers and quiet time. Music. I love to read but too damn tired. Maybe a movie or some Netflix. Once it’s warm out I’ll be sitting outside.

We dont cause we are mommas lol


I do crafts! Rock art and then hide them,
Coloring, diamond art, scrapbook, etc


I sneak the good snacks to the bathroom and eat them in the tub. 100%.


A glass of wine and favorite show.


I love to be alone and relax to my music, or my favorite movie or show. Other than that my husband and I usually sit together and be us for a while. We may even play a game on the Wii together.

Wine and a bubble bath!


Go to my room with Snacks after a long day chill in bed . Turn tv on and watch forensic files… because that’s what I’m into …


A glass of wine, ice cream & Greys Anatomy :joy:


Watch films… From Asian dramas, crime and investigation network, or vlogs on YouTube… So I can sleep right after

Usually some form of yoga and then Pole as I can’t do pole when the kids are awake as they like to join in🤦🏻‍♀️


Smoke a fatty and take a hot bath


I call them the 3 Bs. Bath, book, blunt.


What is a “relax” ? Lol no seriously, I treat myself to one piece of chocolate. Lame I know, but it helps me. 💁

Book ice cream or is it’s the time of year I let myself have it a glad of wine

Cannibals edibles
Glass of wine
Good cup of tea
Binge watching shows

Depends on the day lol


Well I’m 7 months pregnant now lol but non pregnant, alcohol and snacks, bath and reality shows on tv lol

Depends on the day. Most days it’s yoga, some days it’s crafts, Some days it’s baking, some days gardening, somtimes reading, and every day it’s cannabis.
Cannabis helps me and all these endeavors and also helps my chronic pain and my adhd.


Relax in bed alone and watch stuff, do some research on things I’m interested in, drink tea lol

Can’t believe how many mums smoke weed wtf :exploding_head:


A bowl/blunt and Netflix/Hulu or binge watch some reality tv


Smoke a joint and take a hot bath. :ok_hand:


Soaking in a hot bath with epsom salt and a glass of wine!


I put Epsom salt in the tub while they bathe and make sure not to pressure myself after they are in bed to get housework done. Watch tv, read a book, take a long shower

Criminal minds and a tall glass of wine

My kids are 4, 11, 15 and 19 and in bed by 9 year round (unless oldest is working). After that I make wreaths or other crafts for about an hour then imin bed .im not a night owl… No point in it… Im an early riser…

Hot bath and a book on my phone. I also read a little before bed and it really helps de-stress. I have 5 under 5, the youngest is only 2 months so I have my hands full lol.


I either read an ebook i can really immerse myself in, clean the house (kind of cathartic seeing things cleaner), take a looong shower, cuddle with my husband or now i plug in headphones to my nintendo switch & play games till i pass out.

Read, baking shows, and magnesium lotion or powder.
Magnesium is a natural relaxant and important mineral that most of us lack.

YouTube motivational cleaning videos… to process how quick I should clean for a real break! Feels like I never get a break :woman_shrugging:t2:

Adult coloring and I’m going to try diamond painting on my weekend.

I read myself to sleep. I’ve done it for the past 7 years. That’s the only way I can sleep now. And it’s my me time. And my escape. I do the kindle so I can read at night. And it’s just for books so its mine and no one else has any reason to touch it.

I spend some time on FB or watch a grown-up movie that I can’t enjoy with kids around. Read a book. Eat my hidden snacks. Paint my nails. Take an uninterrupted shower where no one flushes the toilet!

Bathtub and a good book. When my kids (twins) were little, bedtime early enough for us to have adult time. Too many parents let their kids stay up too late.

I was going through the same thing. I have a few different things I do that help. I play with/ make slime. I make jewelry. I read a book, watch a movie, or a show and drink a glass of wine. I put my kids to bed then the rest of the night is me time. No chores, no cleaning, nothing. All me. Lol

Teething is normal … hyper is a possible pediatrician visit for ADHD which is very common today. If you feel stressed imagine how your hyper kiddo is feeling !

A warm bath put some bath bombs, prepare some snacks, relaxing music, candles, face and hair mask, and a glass of wine… :grin:

What does “relax” mean?:joy::woman_facepalming:t5::woman_shrugging:t5: I don’t know the meaning of that word. On the rare chance I do get some time to myself that isn’t spent dying on my couch(currently pregnant),taking care of my house, toddler, working, or doing hw, I like to take a hot(warm cuz of baby) bath with epsom salt and the lights of with candles lit, or play the sims. But that’s on a very very RARE occasion.
