I’m bringing a bit of something for the mums out there today. Dads, you do a fab job of course, but today it’s all about the busy mommas! I think once you get on the motherhood train it’s so easy to let ourselves go. Taking a back seat whilst our maternal nature sees us mothering those we love and kind of neglecting ourselves! I am a work at home mum and also homeschool my boys, so to say I’m ready for that bed of mine come night time is a bloody understatement!
It’s important to practice self-care and make some quality time to just relax and appreciate the little things. So what are you waiting for? Book yourself an official day off and treat yourself.
Take A Spa Break
This is definitely right at the top of my list of to-dos. All of those wonderful treatments to try out. I think I would head straight over for a back massage and an Indian head massage to get rid of all of that tension. Probably followed by an afternoon of doing nothing by the pool.
A Date With The Sofa And Some Serious Tv Binging
I love finding a good box set or a series to get into. A few of my favourites are Breaking Bad, Sons Of Anarchy, Vikings, Hand of God, just to name a few. If you are lucky enough to have family who help out with the kids, you could put your feet up for a couple of hours and arm yourself with a box of Maltesers or popcorn and enjoy!
Why not treat your self to some new skin care products or some nice perfume? You could run a nice hot bath and add some deliciously smelling bath oils from Neom Organics. Light up one of their de-stressing candles before bedtime to help you get ready for a good night’s sleep. They also do an energising range which can help you feel in tip-top condition ready to tackle the busy day ahead.
Remember those days pre-parent days when you used to go into shops by yourself and not have to rush down each aisle with a screaming toddler? Or be able to go in clothes shops and look for something for yourself? No me neither! So why not go treat yourself to that top you’ve wanted for ages? Go use the trolley as a scooter down the grocery aisle and celebrate not having to deal with a temper tantrum at the checkouts.
Remember, us mums are awesome. We do love looking after others, but sometimes a bit of self-care goes a long way (and it helps keep the wrinkles and grey hair at bay!).
