Why we don't prioritize selfcare ?
Why we don't keep ourselves on the priority list. Always running, never resting. Being a mum is a full-time job, and a very tiring one at that! That's why it's extra important to take some time out of your busy schedule to indulge in some much-needed "me time." If you don't, you could be in danger of burnout, a state of physical and emotional exhaustion. So, make sure you avoid the burnout in every aspect of your life.
Take a Bath
Your body is a temple, so when the kids are asleep, run yourself a relaxing bath filled with salt and essential oil. If you really want to unwind, then you can light some scented candles and play some soft music in the background.
Learn to say no
As a mum, you can often feel like you're pulled in a million different directions trying to please everyone in the family. You might even feel guilty about saying no to certain requests from family members, children, or friends. But you shouldn't! It's okay to say no sometimes, and to not take on extra work. Remember to look after yourself as much as you look after others around you, or you could be in danger of burning out.
Look good to feel good
Taking care of your appearance can help you to feel more confident and happy within yourself, because when you look good, you feel good, right?
A takeaway dinner
Always busy cooking meals for the kids? Hardly ever eat what you want to eat? Then it's time to treat yourself to a little guilty pleasure and order your favourate takeaway. Once the kids are asleep, sit back and whack on a feel-good film. Welcome to the perfect night in.
