It’s no secret that being a Mom is hard work. With most Moms today balancing a career outside of the home, achieving that ideal work/life balance has become a challenge. That’s where self-care comes in.
Self-care is taking time for one's health, well-being and happiness. Making time for yourself, even with small acts of self-kindness, can go a long way in decreasing feelings of exhaustion, burnout, stress and even depression.
Here are some quick self-care tips for Moms:
Delegate tasks and ask for help.
Accept help when offered and do not be afraid to say no to commitments that you do not have time for.
Keep a calendar or list of upcoming tasks for yourself and your family. Prioritize tasks to prevent becoming overwhelmed.
Try to get seven to eight hours of sleep each night and take part in daily exercise. Also, eat a diet of lean meats, low-fat dairy, fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Avoid sugary beverages, alcohol and high-fat foods and drink six to eight cups of water daily.
Schedule some "me time."
Set aside a spa day. You can come to Cher-Mere and pamper yourself with any of our body massages, facials, manicures, pedicures and waxing services, to help relax and rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit.
