Fun and Healthy Mother's Day Activities

May 01, 2014

Your mom does so much for you every day. She cooks for you, cleans up after you and gives you allowance to buy those new sneakers. So now, it's your turn to pamper your mom! If you're looking for fun and healthy things to do together on Mother's Day, just read on!

Work Up a Sweat

Whether they're picking you up from school, dropping you off at soccer practice, or baking four dozen cookies for your weekend slumber party, moms are always running around! So turn it into a fun activity by going for a run together. Don't stick around your 'hood, but check out a challenging hiking trail, or kick off your shoes and go jogging on the beach instead.

Have a Picnic

Give mom a vacation. We don't mean airfare to Mexico, but more like a day away from the house. Cook/bake/prepare her favorite foods, pack them in ziploc bags and head to the neighborhood park for a picnic. Once you've enjoyed the food, the fresh air and the fun conversations, take a long walk around the park to stop and smell the roses.

De-Stress in the Garden

Did you know gardening is a great stress reliever? You get an aromatherapy treatment from the fragrance of the flowers and you stretch and work out your body by planting and pulling out weeds. As well, pastel colors, like pink tulips and yellow daffodils, are known to have a calming effect on your emotions, so it's no wonder your mom loves to garden! And who knows - you may end up liking it so much that you garden with her even after Mother's Day!

Have a Spa Day

Many beauty salons offer mother-son and mother-daughter packages on this special day. You can get a head-to-toe treatment or focus on one area, like the face or back. You won't be exercising your heart or working up a sweat (unless you lounge in the steam room), but a day at the spa will leave your mom rejuvenated, relaxed and glowing all Mother's Day long.

So basicall, i am changing. Your changing.. so possibly the way you view your friendship is changing too.. I am going into middle school. I am worried if my best freind is becoming a jerk.He has harrased me for not hanging out with him every recess. If you hung out with him before in every recess hes probably feeling like your moving away from him.. and you are since your following statement is He has been ungrateful everytime i did him a favor. Friends doesnt count favours - and what kind of favours do you think your doing for him that he doesnt and hasnt done for you over the years you has been best friends? He even went to do "magic" with his neighbor when i was over. He is also the type that could probably get in trouble the first day. Your making judgements about him and why does you think he is the type that is gonna get in trouble?  Your his friend.  Talk to him... Do you think I should ditch him?. No. Hes growing and changing too.  If he really is your best friend - talk to him.. tell him how your feeling and say what is bothering you and sorts it out. Good luck :love

Ditch? Absolutely no. And..You should talk to him and ask him what's going on and why he's doing it. But you should ask him calmly or he will feel bad. All the best!!

This is not something that I am at all proud of... I hate myself more everytime I look or even think about it... My wrist My Father My Depression My tears My scissors ......... That's all that I can think about...... All that's going through my head.... I've been dealing with depression ever since I can remember it's not at all something I am proud of....Espically since I get bullied and harassed a lot by classmates and others .......and ever since I've moved and changed schools my life has became my own hell...... And the only way I thought I could control my hell was to escape it...... Just for a while at least ......So I took the green scissors from the dresser and I took my right wrist and left.........I had disappeared.....My heart poured out as well as the blood from my wrist......And after I was finished....I asked for a bandaid ......and I cried harder knowing that no one cared......Oh I don't know where they are.......No why ifs or buts.........And they are the ones who say I was the crazy one as my eyes pleaded with them to understand how hurt I truly was behind those eyes ....The black eyes that disappeared to find help in her pain....... But they know now what I've done at least she knows .....he'll find out when he comes home .......heart broken he'll be .....he's tried several times to make me laugh smile be happy.......But I know he knew we both knew this wasn't working......When he asks to see the scars I'll show him....Knowing painfully Knowing I'm breaking the man who loves me the most...heart.....I guess I wait ...untill he shows ......there's nothing left to do but wait.......
