Parenthood is emotionally exhausting – Parents more than double their “daily dose” of stress hormones that can lead to cardiovascular problems or high blood pressure. They then face the problem that these chemicals remain in their bodies for over a month, so it’s like getting stressed out every day for 31 days!

Being a parent is like starting your own business: you need to put in the time and effort to succeed. Once you understand that and are ready to take this path, everything becomes easier and more fulfilling. You’ll begin to greatly value things that used to seem mundane, such as spending one-on-one time with your kids. In addition, if you have a significant other or even just friends who’ve been there for support throughout the process of preparing for parenthood, using their advice will be very helpful too. Finally, being a parent isn’t easy at first, but it does become easier after some time passes.
