Helpful Self-Care Tips For Busy Single Moms

64

Approximately 24 percent of mothers in the US raise their children on their own. According to a study published by the Pew Research Center, there are at least 9 million American mothers living with their children under the age of 18 without a husband or a partner. These mothers took the full responsibility of caring for their kids and providing for all their needs. Because of this, solo moms tend to forget how to take care of themselves. 

But experts believe that parents, whether raising their kids on their own or with a partner, must also know how to prioritize their own mental health and overall well-being to improve their parenting skills. If you are a parent and guilty of neglecting your self-care, here are several tips to show more love to yourself. 

Schedule A Time For Yourself

No matter how busy your schedule is, you need to find time for yourself regularly. You should always squeeze in a little “me-time”  in your hectic calendar to make sure that you will never forget it. During this time, you can do whatever you want to relax and take your mind off your usual worries while delegating the childcare duties to someone you trust. You may set an appointment with your favorite salon for a haircut, have a calming massage, or read a new novel during your special time with yourself. 

Give Yourself A Gift

Whether you reached a particular milestone at work or managed to survive another crazy day at home with your kids, you need to celebrate your little triumphs by buying yourself a present. You may splurge on a new gadget, something for your hobby, or buy yourself a new make-up, as long as you have the budget for it. Buying gifts for mom and dad should always be a part of your self-love regimen since it will remind you that you are doing a good job in taking care of your family while juggling other things in between.

Make Time For Exercise

If you really want to take care of your kids for as long as possible, you need to make sure that your body can handle it. For this reason, include health and wellness in your priority list. You may either enroll in a gym membership or wake up earlier than scheduled to run around the block. You can also join your other mommy friends in yoga sessions. While you are at it, you must also start eating healthier for your overall fitness plan. 

Taking care of yourself is not an act of selfishness. On the contrary, you are doing something to help care for your family. You just need to set realistic daily goals so you can find time for yourself without neglecting the needs of your children. It would also help if you ask a trusted person to look after your family while you are spending some time on your own. It will lessen your worries and let you enjoy your personal time. By following these self-care tips, you can finally have the healthiest and happiest version of yourself.
