As a busy woman it can be hard to find time for yourself. I feel personally like I am trying to “pour from an empty cup.” Not just for moms, but women in general tend to do for everyone else before themselves. I want to share 9 things you can do for self-care each week to make sure you are taking care of you!
9 Things You Can Do For Self-Care Each Week
Exercise: Exercise is really important. It took me a lot of years to truly appreciate a good workout and really see the benefit, not just physically but mentally. To me there is nothing better you can do for yourself.
Mani/Pedi/Face masks Etc: I know this isn’t needed weekly, but even a face mask or painting your own toe nails will make you feel so amazing! The other day I was so stressed and during Liam’s nap I took a shower, washed and dried my hair, and did a face mask! It made me feel so good!
Drink tons of water: This is probably the easiest thing you can do ALL week long. I can be really bad at times but I have discovered for me adding lemon or cucumber really helps and I look forward to drinking it!
Enjoy some trashy TV: One of my personal favorite past times. I love a good trashy reality show when I need some downtime!
Read: I love to read and I think the idea of escaping life into another world for a while can be really refreshing.
See a movie: Admittedly I have not watched a ton of movies since Liam has been born. Usually I am just so tired at night I can’t finish one. We have been watching more movies together lately and I have watched a few on my own. Kind of like reading, escaping to a new world is nice.
Try a new recipe: I love to bake so baking muffins has been a recent hobby of mine. It calms me to follow the directions and have a delicious product after.
Organize your closet: Maybe I am weird but yes this is self-care to me! It’s always nice to find something you forgot you have or rearrange things to better suit your needs. It’s also a great time to get rid of things you don’t wear and donate!
Treat yourself: Maybe it’s a delicious Pumpkin Spice latte (tis the season) or a donut, or maybe new shoes. Just do something little for yourself!
I think it’s beyond helpful to do a little something for yourself as often as possible because it really makes a difference in your overall mood.
