As a busy mom, it can be challenging to find time for self-care. However, taking care of yourself is essential for your mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Here are some simple ways to make time for self-care, along with product suggestions from my favorite Econea e-shop to help you relax and rejuvenate.
Try to wake up just 30 minutes earlier than your child. This time can give you a head start to your day. Use this time to meditate, do yoga, or take a relaxing shower. Try the Tierra Verde shower gel Essence of Happiness to make your shower more relaxing.
Exercise is a great way to relieve stress and improve your mood. Whether you take a walk, run, or do a workout at home, make sure to schedule some exercise time into your day. Even if it was ten minutes workout, possibly even with your little one. Or a calming and stretching yoga at the end of the day. You can use the Purity Vision Lavender Body Oil for a gentle massage of your sore muscles.
Taking a simple break during the day can help you recharge and refocus. Try taking a short walk, listening to music, or reading a book while your little angel sleeps. You can make a cup of tea with a herbal blend especially for women or try my favorite curcuma latte.
Practicing mindfulness can help you reduce stress and improve your mental clarity. Try practicing mindfulness while doing household chores, such as washing dishes or folding laundry. Meaning you will focus only on that one thing, instead of creating a do list in your head. Simply enjoy, that you are making dirty plates clean again. There is plenty washing liquids for example, that actually smell good and even take care of your skin - like these ones.
Now a bit of a tricky one and that is enough sleep. Getting enough sleep is crucial for your health and well-being. Take a nap anytime it is possible for you. Cuddle with your little one and sleep together. Do not worry this won´t spoil him, it will just give the both of you some quality time together. Also i am sure you have a bedtime routine for your child so create one for yourself. We have written and entire blog post about 7 TIPS FOR RELAXED BEDTIME ROUTINE. What definitely helps me to fall asleep better is fresh air with a hint of Lavender essential oil.
In conclusion, self-care is essential for busy moms, find it in the little things. By implementing these simple strategies, you can prioritize your well-being and create a more relaxed and balanced lifestyle. Remember, that you cannot pour from an empty cup, therefor taking care of yourself is crucial, to take care of others.
