Between diaper changes, crying fests, nursing, little sleep and constantly entertaining your little one, it is very easy as a Mom to forget to take care of yourself. We get it. There are a million things to do around the house when the baby is sleeping, but today, let’s skip the chores and take care of ourselves, shall we?
Taking time to do something you enjoy doesn’t mean you have to empty your bank account either. Check out some of our ideas that will have you replenishing your energy in little time (and money)!
:: Take a bubble bath: when the little one goes down for a nap, hop into the bath with your favorite book/show!
:: Get outside: sometimes being at home with the little one day in & day out will drive you to insanity! Grab the stroller, pack in the little one, and head out. Get a cup of coffee, walk the park, and listen to some music. Fresh air is always a winning idea.
:: Paint your nails: grab your favorite color and get a fresh coat on your nails!
:: Watch a movie/read a book: if you have a go-to movie or book that makes you happy, now’s the time to enjoy it. If baby is playing alone, snuggle up on the couch & give yourself some quiet time too.
:: Turn off your phone: yes, we said it! The extra pressure of social media and constantly being plugged in can sometimes spark more unrest within you. Power down and give your brain some time away from the screen.
:: Burn that amazing candle/essential oil: whatever smell makes you happy! Find that candle and burn it right where you’re sitting. Take a few deep breaths and enjoy the nice aroma around your house.
:: Ask for alone time: let’s be honest, sometimes you just need alone time. And there is nothing wrong with that, Mama! Ask your husband, your siblings, or your close friends if they could watch the baby so you can have a couple hours to yourself. Whether you want to go get your hair done, enjoy a movie alone, or just go sit at a coffee shop, you deserve to enjoy some YOU time!
As a Mom, days become even more busy, and you might not have as much time for things that you used to love to do. However, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t intentionally make some time for yourself & the things that make you happy every day! Giving yourself a break allows you to replenish your emotional energy so you can be the best for your family — and for yourself!
