Find a Feel-Good Stepmom Anthem
If you’re a stepmom, you’re gonna need an anthem. The type of song that summons your endorphins. A musical pep talk. A Lorazepam for your soul.
Just like breathing exercises, big-girl time outs, and therapy, your stepmom anthem belongs in the self-care tool-belt. Your special anthem is a magic wand of sorts. It has the power to influence, amplify, and change your feelings.
Whether you’re feeling sad, sexy, heartbroken, strong, or sleepy, there’s a song for that! So find the one that makes you feel REALLY JOYFUL and save it for a rainy day. The next time you find yourself in a stressful stepparent moment, stop whatever you’re doing and put that song on. A lot can change in three minutes.
If you don’t already have a stepmom anthem picked out, here are a few to test drive. Now crank up the volume baby!
