Getaways for Moms Who Need a Break

111

Being a parent is as rewarding as it is demanding. Moms today struggle to balance their family life and careers and are coping with record levels of stress. Luckily, moms are able to connect with each other via websites such as TrulyMama, where they can receive advice, support, and insight from other moms, but many moms still struggle with their own self-care. As mothers learn more about how stress and burnout impact them at home and at work, more moms understand the value of taking a break. Here are a few ways moms can set aside time for themselves.

Plan A Weekend Getaway

Head out Friday night to the destination of your choice. Use TripAdvisor to find hotel deals with the popular amenities you prefer, including a complimentary breakfast so that you have at least one of your meals included.

Take A Trip to the Ocean

Travel to the ocean and enjoy the day sitting by the water. It can be calming and help you recharge. You can opt to swim in pools, go on a short cruise, or spend time kayaking if you like to stay busy. You can also spend time building a sandcastle and reading on the beach.

Book A Vacation Rental

Book a vacation rental so that you can truly get away from it all without the need to interact with strangers. You can have an entire apartment or house to yourself complete with private amenities. This is a great option if you want to stick to your own schedule.

Explore a New City

Plan a Lansing trip and check out top attractions such as galleries and landmarks, and explore the Old Town. Coordinate your trip with one of East Lansing’s festivals. Being sure to infuse your trip to the city with a focus on your interests is great for self-care.

Take a Day Trip

A day trip can be a great way to recharge. You may be able to indulge in some of the weekend-getaway activity options for a shorter period of time, but there are also a number of simple things you can do on a day trip to relax and take care of yourself, like shopping, getting a pedicure, or seeing a movie.

Make an Appointment at a Spa

There are a large number of spa resorts that offer relaxing getaway option for moms. Have a facial and take advantage of the many services offered at a spa, and you’re sure to feel pampered. This is also a great option to help you relax.

Take a Shopping Trip

Moms can easily fall into the habit of focusing on their children when shopping. Set aside some time to go to your favorite stores. Shop for clothes, makeup, or items you enjoy. Make a rule that you won’t shop for the kids; this is a day trip where you spend your time and money on yourself.

Get a Makeover

Visit your favorite salon, get a new haircut, and have your makeup done. If you’re feeling bold, book time afterward to have your picture taken. Getting a makeover can increase your confidence and offer a mental-health boost that will benefit you at home and at work.

Enjoy a Night Out

One of the benefits of a night out is that you can plan them a bit more often. Plus, they can also be a more affordable option. You can also join a group that meets monthly or weekly to maintain a regular self-care regimen.

Go to a Concert or Show

Buy tickets to go see your favorite band. You can go to a concert at a large venue or see a group perform at a local club or bar. If you prefer shows, you can head to the city to see a play or get tickets to see a comedian. These are all great ways to spend time doing something you enjoy.

Go to Dinner and a Movie

Plan a night out for yourself or with a close friend. Have dinner at your favorite restaurant and make sure you save room for dessert before heading out to see a movie of your choice. This is a simple option that’s a great way to help you unwind.

Join a Book Club or Exercise Program

Whether you prefer books or yoga, join a local group that focuses on one of your interests. This can be a great way to get out regularly and feel motivated to set aside regular time for yourself. Plus, being part of a group can be a great way to connect with others with shared interests.
