Moms are the hardest-working people on this earth. You always hear it, but they are truly like superheroes. With this weekend being Mother’s Day weekend I wanted to take time and give all the moms reading this some self-care tips. Why? Because you deserve to take that time to wind down after putting all your love and effort toward your babies!
First, I just wanted to say something to you all, “You are such a good mom! You are valued, you are important, and you deserve so much love and appreciation.”
Because I can’t think of anyone more deserving, here are 6 ways to show yourself a little love and care.
1. Prioritize Moving Your Body!
This is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. Exercise will help you have more energy, better sleep, as well as reduced stress levels. Whatever you enjoy doing, whether it’s going for a walk, yoga, or having a dance party with your kiddos, get some exercise in to clear your mind!
2. Connect With Others
You are never alone. There are so many people out there you can connect and relate to even in motherhood. Try and find resources or groups that give you the space to be around other women who understand what you’re going through and can become your life-long friends!
3. Practice Self-Compassion
It’s so easy to be our own worst critic. The most important thing you can do is to just keep trying. You are doing your best and you are amazing!
4.Take Time For Yourself!
Even if it’s just taking 30 minutes to yourself to read a good book, take time to do the things you enjoy.
5.Get Enough Sleep
No matter how difficult this one may seem, rest is so important. Try to prioritize getting 7-8 hours of sleep every day. You know personally, your kids are better when they are well rested, why wouldn’t we be?!
6. Last but not least, Take Breaks!
Take the time to step away, take a breath, and resume. We all get overwhelmed sometimes, so remember you are not alone and it’s okay to step away from time to time.
Thank you to all you moms out there who are doing their best. We all need a little self-care to help us recharge and be our best selves. You got this!!!
