Being a mother can be very stressful. Taking care of children, managing the home, building a career and business while still trying to do many other things, can have an impact on the physical, emotional and mental health of mothers.
No matter what society says, women need to know that it is not right to live with so much stress and do so much at the expense of your health and well-being.
This is why Tochi Opara is helping mothers to see how they can manage their lives effectively and reduce stress.

Why She Is Passionate About Helping Mothers Overcome Stress
I grew up watching my mother go through life with so much stress.
She was an active parishioner and the presidents of two organizations in the church. She was also a banker in the ‘90s and early 2000s who go home nothing later than 10 pm bringing work home with her.
I remember times when my elder brother and I (probably around ages 10 and 8) would do her call overusing the lantern.
We lived at Ibafo and I cannot remember her complain about anything until the night before her passing on the 30th of December 2004 after a heart attack.
Every day, I live in regret for her because she didn’t live long to reap her fruits after toiling so much.
I too realized I was going down the same path after I had my first child. I also had other moms reaching out to me, complaining bitterly about the stress they face and then I realized it was not peculiar to me alone but people were not talking about it openly.
So, I vowed never to repeat the same stressful cycle with my kids because I wanted to be around for them and to live a happy and fulfilled life.
These motivated me to reach out to moms, in order to promote open conversations, enlighten them on the possible illnesses that stress causes to the body, and to also change their mindset concerning the normalcy people associate with stress.
