It is no secret that I am a serial ‘Worrier’.
Those that know me, and know me well will tell you that I am always worried or stressed out about something.
Always have been that way.
Unfortunately, I seem to have bred a few little worriers too.
Aria and I are very much the same when it comes to flipping out and laying awake at night with too many worries on our minds, so when the opportunity came up to check out these Guatemalan Worry Dolls, I jumped at it.
What is a ‘Worry Doll’? I hear you say……
Well aside from being ridiculously cute teeny tiny dolls that resemble little people, they also take your worries away!
Well the Mayan people of Guatemala believe that when you tell your worries to these little dolls and put them under your pillow at night, by morning, the Worry Dolls will have taken all your worries away.
Now, I cannot tell you for sure if it works, I do think it is one of those things that you have to truly believe in, but the idea of them certainly appeals to me.
One thing I am sure of is, the MonsterSquad need something to help them settle at night and this my chaos friends, may just be it!
Who would have thought kids that are 6, 7 & 8 would have so many worries, but trust me, they’ve reeled them off and they do carry much more on their shoulders than we give them credit for.
So I have given my little worriers a pouch of big worry dolls each and have incorporated them into our evening routine.
We now have dinner, bath, readers, worry dolls and bed!
This gives the kids a chance to relax with their books, then tell their worries to the dolls before they tuck them under their pillows and nod off for the night.
So far so good. It seems to be working.
As for me, I now have myself a little worry doll notebook to place in my bedside cupboard. I can quickly jot down anything on my mind and its put away so I can have a good night sleep.
And that’s working too!
The Worry Doll site has a great range of different products you can buy so choosing something that suits everyone is easy.
Personally I think the Worry Dolls would be a fabulous gift for students that are about to enter exams, or even perfect for ‘stocking stuffers’ this Christmas.
