4 Ways to Take Better Care of Yourself

2

One of the main issues about being a mom is trying to make enough time for yourself. When you don’t take better care of yourself, you can burn out as a parent. Nevertheless, it’s important to carve out some me-time. Pampering yourself is allowed, but don’t leave it too long to do it. Before you can be the best mom, sustaining yourself is necessary first. Here are four ways to take better care of yourself.

  • Change Up Your Personal Care Regimen

Hear us out here. What we’re suggesting is that it’s better to change up how you take care of yourself to reduce time. For instance, laser hair removal cuts out the need to shave your legs, replace the shaving blade, and deal with any accidental knicks to the skin too. Whether it’s your legs, arms, chin, upper lip, or the bikini line for summer, laser treatment can eliminate unwanted hair. Then your morning routine doesn’t require as much time when the kids are already requiring your attention. 

  • Take Strategic Mini Breaks to Renew

When you’re go-go-go during the day and don’t stop, even regular coffee or another caffeine jolt won’t sustain you. Look for the opportunity to take a 15-minute pause to close your eyes, clear your mind, and breathe normally again. That can be done at home, in the car after dropping off the kids at daycare or school, or while sitting in the backyard. Even if you’re naturally a Type-A personality, recognize that you cannot expect to burn the candle at both ends forever. Avoid the inevitable crash by taking strategic breaks every day.

  • Socialize with Friends

It’s easy to become a mom and begin to lose touch with your friends. When they’re still singletons and you’re a mom now, you’re missing out on nights out and chats. Reconnect with friends who you miss and haven’t spoken to in a while. Let go of any idea that you can only socialize with other moms because that may be a restrictive list for you. Also, get involved in activities that bring you into contact with new people. It’s hard to make new friends when you’re spending all your time at home. 

  • Find Time to Work Out

Working out is difficult if you don’t have a supportive partner or you’re taking care of the kids alone. To remain healthy and to burn off any stress, exercising is vital. If you’re alone, maybe you will need to create a home gym and grab 15 minutes when you can. A yoga mat is ideal to fit in a quick session while the baby is napping, or the kids are otherwise occupied. Small kettlebells or resistance bands also work well to increase strength and tone up in confined spaces. If you have someone to take care of the kids, then head off to the gym. You’ll enjoy the change of scene, better facilities, and it’ll be something to look forward to. 

Just like with putting the oxygen mask on yourself in an airplane emergency, and then putting one on your child, taking care of yourself is essential to be a better mom. Otherwise, you’ll run yourself ragged, and no one functions well at that point.
