Motherhood and the importance of self-care

While it may feel natural for you to spend all your time and energy on raising your children, it can actually be detrimental to your own health and well-being. Setting aside a few hours for yourself each week is going to make you a more engaged, productive mother in the long run.

Even though it’s going to seem difficult finding the time to take a bath or go for a run, it’s really something that needs to be prioritized. Mom’s have a long and deep-rooted history of putting everyone else’s needs before their own.

All mother’s know that children learn by example. So taking the time to focus on yourself will also show them the importance of listening to your body and paying attention to your mental health. It’s a win-win!

What is self-care?

Self-care is the practice of behaviors that promote physical, emotional, and mental well-being, and it looks different for everyone.

For one person, it may include physical activity or an adrenaline-pumping activity. Whereas other folks might see self-care as an afternoon nap or watching their favorite show with a delivery container of sushi.

Self-care ideas for mothers

Because time is scarce when you have to haul your children to and from extracurricular activities, it’s best to find some self-care activities that don’t require hours on end. If your children are still very young, nap time provides the ideal opportunity to sneak off for some “me” time.

Have a hot bath

There are several reasons why you should add a bath to your weekly routine. Frequently taking baths can help improve your heart health and circulation, soothe sore joints, balance hormones, and calm any anxiety or worry that you may be feeling. Taking a bath is also a great way to wind-down for the night as it raises your body temperature, which is essential for a deep sleep.

Read your book

Diving into a good book provides the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle that you’re used to. If it’s warm outside and you have access to an outdoor space, try soaking in some vitamin D as you read.

Go for a walk

Popping outside for a leisurely walk can work wonders for your physical and mental health. But if you prefer something a little more action-packed, consider signing up for a spin or dance class. Exercising (no matter the intensity) releases endorphins that will boost your mood for hours after.

Schedule coffee with a friend

For some women, meeting up with friends or family is how they recharge their batteries. It doesn’t always have to be a big night out on the town or trip to the mall, a simple coffee shop date will cheer you up and leave you feeling refreshed!

Do an at-home spa treatment

When you have kids, doing your hair, painting your nails, and caring for your skin can fall to the wayside. But if anyone deserves to look and feel good, it’s mothers. Plan an at-home spa treatment, which can include a face mask, DIY pedicure, and maybe a massage from your significant other when they get home from work.
