These days, everyone is talking about self-care. The problem for most moms, though, is that there seems to be no time for it! Between juggling our businesses, children, and regular life responsibilities, we often end up putting self-care on the back burner.
Self-care is more than just skin care and getting your nails done, though. It’s a resetting of the mind, body, and spirit. When you feel loved and cared for, you end up being a happier and better mom, businesswoman, and all-around better person too.
So, if you’re a mom who wants to feel good and do good, keep reading!
· Spend time in prayer
It’s proven that spending time in prayer isn’t just good for your spiritual health and relationship with God, it can also lower your stress levels, boost your mood and assist you in self-control. Give your brain that boost of oxytocin and write in your journal everything you’re grateful God has done for you—and all the things you hope to receive from The Father. You’ll be glad you did!
· Focus on the physical
I know some moms can’t stand the idea of getting active before or after a long day—but trust me when I say you’ll be glad you did!
Getting your blood pumping and getting outside is a great way to feel refreshed and take care of yourself. I’m not saying you need to become an Olympic athlete (believe me, I’ve literally been there) but I am saying that at least 30-45 minutes of moving your body can seriously improve your mood, and your overall health.
Need inspiration….. I love these videos….
· Find time for your friends
Spending time with friends is also a great way to take care of yourself and boost your mood. Research shows that you should spend twice a week with your closest friends/family to optimize these benefits. And I know that this could be difficult for some moms but do your best to have that time for just you and your friend(s). Leave the angels at home with dad or a sitter!
· Hone your skills.
So many of the moms I know wear lots of hats. One thing so many of them have in common is business owner/entrepreneur. If you’re a business owner or someone who hopes to be and you need expert advice, I recommend Truth Bomb. Truth bomb is a Digital Marketing and Leadership Development platform built for entrepreneurs that need quick access to experts to get their questions answered around building their business.
· Pamper yourself and prepare to unwind
A real problem so many moms have when it comes to the classic pamper session of self-care is that we just don’t have the time to shop for anything fun and relaxing. By the time our random relaxation items we picked out from Amazon arrives, the weekend is already over, and we must wait another week to even try them out. That’s where Cratejoy has come in!
