Self-care must be a priority for busy moms everywhere. Taking the time to make sure you’re at your best mentally and physically will ensure that you’re able to give your best to your family. While self-care is a priority for moms, it’s not always treated as such.
It’s essential you start making self-care a priority. We know that you’re super busy and already have a full plate, but we’re confident taking the time for self-care everyday will help you feel less stressed and anxious as you cope with your everyday mom life.
Shower at Night
Whether it’s a shower or a bath, taking a shower at night is the easier route. After you put your kids to sleep, take your daily shower. This will help reduce the stress you’re feeling from the busy day by relaxing your tense muscles. Hot water from the shower will pour down your body and help you relax a bit thus promoting self-care for both advanced physical and mental health.
Prepare at Night
Don’t forget about those stressful mornings! Self-care is all about finding new ways to reduce stress. Setting out clothes for your next day the night before will reduce the number of things you must do in the morning. You may want to pack lunches, and prepare a quick breakfast the night before, too. This is an easy way to reduce the stress associated with rush mornings in your mom life.
Wake Up Before Everyone Else
Another life hack that busy moms use to put self-care first is to wake up before everyone else in the home. Waking up just 15 minutes before anyone else in the home wakes up can help give you a chance to detox your mind and body. Grab a cup of tea, read a little from your favorite book, or just enjoy a quiet peaceful moment staring out the window while you wait for your family to wake up.
Bring Travel Makeup
You don’t need makeup to be beautiful but sometimes busy moms like to wear makeup to feel beautiful. Self-care is all about how you feel and so we say bring travel size makeup options with you everywhere you go. You can easily fit travel size makeup containers in your child’s diaper bag or your purse whenever you’re expected to have a busy on-the-road sort of day!
Take a Nap
If you have young kids who take a daily nap and you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed, then consider taking a nap with them. We don’t mean go climb in bed with your baby or toddler, but rather curl up on the couch or in your bed to take a mid-day nap. Adult naps will help you detox your mind from the busy morning so that you can take on the challenges of the rest of the day with ease.
Taking time to use these mom hacks to make self-care a priority this year will help you feel more confident, look fabulous, and walk with a sense of pride everywhere you go. It’s important that you try to make self-care a daily priority this year so that you can be the best version of yourself every single day.
