Recharging Mentally Tips

How I am staying Intouch With and recharging mentally

Hey sports moms, has fall practices started for your family yet?  My daughter’s cheer schedule came out last week and it has me sitting on a field for 2 hours a night 4 nights a week.  Now I love to support her and I am fully decked out in team colors and spirit sticks on game days and at competitions, but sitting on those bleachers at every practice can be the epitome of boredom.

I tried working from the field last year but it drained my data quickly and I realized I don’t have the concentration to work as my daughter is getting thrown in the air and my son and getting tackled.  Then there was social media and other mindless games that I tried, I was still bored and feeling kind of guilty about the chunk of time I was pretty much wasting because I am not allowed on the field.  Then this week I downloaded Words With Friends 2 and now I am totally hooked!

Words With Friends 2 Winning Moments

This awesome game has me recharging my brain by making me think of all the words I can possibly come up with, as a writer this is such a great tool during my downtime.  Plus, I get to play with family and friends from across the country!  As a mom who made her first long distance move only a year ago, I yearn for ways to connect with my family and friends back home, but I am also not talking on the phone girl. Words With Friends 2 is allowing me to not only work my brain during my downtime, but it also makes the time go by fast as I connect with people that I am missing.  How much fun is that?  I currently have ongoing games open with my aunt in Boston, my oldest son who is on a trip in South Carolina with his uncle, my cousin in Kentucky, and my best friend in New Hampshire.
