How Do I Cope with Being a Single Mom? by Hollywood Psychics

Remember that all the stress is worth every minute of it.
Remember that all the stress is worth every minute of it.
A wise person once said "Being a single parent is twice the work, twice the stress, and twice the tears, but also twice the hugs, twice the love, and twice the pride." But when the pressure's on, it's easy to focus on the negatives rather than those rich positives. Read on to learn useful coping strategies for these trying times.

Move Closer to Friends and Loved Ones
Physical isolation makes many single moms feel overburdened and lonely. Lighten your load by moving closer to your nearest and dearest. Doting grandparents, aunts and uncles, and even close friends are often happy to help with child minding duties and household chores. With loved ones close at hand, you can strike a better work/life balance and find comfort during tough times.

Get Your Life Organized
Most single moms say they've felt overwhelmed at one point or another. Becoming more organized in all aspects of your life is a great way to reduce these destructive feelings.

When you rely on just one income, every penny counts. Making a budget which considers regular expenses and unexpected costs like school field trips and household repairs will ensure you don't overspend. Look for places to cut back, like forgoing that café coffee for instant in the office. Making weekly or monthly schedules, including nightly meal plans, is another way to regain control.

It seems an unlikely culprit, but clutter may also be overwhelming you. Removing the junk takes a bit of effort, but here's some added incentive. Studies show de-cluttering and organizing your home will slash your housework by 40 percent!

Look Forward to the Future
See a psychic. This tip might seem a little far out to skeptical single moms, but you'll be amazed how good it feels to hear about the future when the present is overwhelming. It can feel freeing to discuss your life and destiny with someone completely objective. The best psychics will let you vent about whatever's troubling you and support you through your session.

Hearing about all the great things just around the corner can give you the lift you need. With the rise of psychic readers online, you don't even need to leave your house to learn your fate.

Make Time for Dating
Sometimes the gulf between single moms and other single women can feel enormous. But in truth, there's not so much separating you from those fun-loving Sex & the City types. Arrange regular childcare so you can enjoy bi-weekly nights out. You might enjoy a dinner date with a new flame, a spa date with your gal pals, or even a movie date with yourself. Whatever it is, it should be a chance for you to have fun and get back in touch with your own identity. Using that time to run errands or cancelling on yourself is definitely not allowed!

Being a single mom isn't always easy, but putting these tips into practice can help you get through the challenges with a smile on your face.
