Mom’s Guide to CBD: Enhancing Parenting and Self-Care

8

You know what they say: “There is no one more selfless than a mother.” See, the thing about being a mom is that the moment you become one, your focus automatically shifts to taking care of your new bundle of joy, even at the cost of neglecting your own well-being. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, as a mother, it is important to make sure you take good care of yourself, too, so that you can take care of your loved ones to the best of your abilities. Even if you have an endless list of work, tasks, errands, and housework to do, it is absolutely vital for you to take a breather every now and then. And what better way is there to do that than by pampering yourself with the healing touch of CBD? Here are various ways to level up your self-care routine with CBD. 

Fall Into A Deep, Restorative Sleep

When was the last time that you slept soundly? For most moms out there, the typical answer is before they had kids. Busy moms who work on top of taking care of their families often compromise on sleep quality and quantity just to juggle all the tasks at hand. But getting adequate restorative sleep is crucial to maintaining our physical and mental well-being. If you don’t get enough sleep, you will always feel tired, groggy, irritable, unfocused, and just overall miserable. Not to mention, sleep deprivation impairs the immune system, which can make you more susceptible to getting sick. 

If all the stress, pending tasks, and boisterous children are keeping you from slipping into a peaceful slumber, maybe it is time to experience deep sleep with CBD. Cannabidiol is touted for its immensely relaxing and potent anti-insomniac properties. Studies show that CBD improves the quality and quantity of sleep by ensuring a continuous progression through the normal stages of sleep without undue interruption, which is beneficial for people who have a messed up circadian rhythm. 

And if you’re in a constant state of stress, CBD calms down your nervous system, thereby preventing anxiety and negative emotions from seeping through. Moreover, it has analgesic and muscle-relaxing benefits that can ease the deep-seated tension in your fatigued muscles. All these therapeutic effects combine to help put you in a tranquil state until you eventually drift off into a deep, uninterrupted sleep about 15 to 30 minutes after taking CBD. Upon waking up, you will surely feel refreshed, revitalized, and ready to take on the daunting challenges of parenting once again.

Pamper Yourself With A Well-Deserved “Me Time”

With all the hard work you put into making sure everyone is well-taken care of, you definitely deserve a “me time” where you just pamper yourself for a whole day without worrying about anything else. 

While everyone’s idea of comfort and “me time” may vary due to personal preference, for sure, most people would consider a warm bath an indispensable part of “me time.” So just fill the bathtub with warm water, drop some bath bombs, rose petals, and a couple of drops of your favorite fragrance or essential oil. While you’re at it, light up some scented candles, prepare a glass of wine paired with a charcuterie board, and load your favorite movie on your iPad. Watching a movie while soaked in warm fragrant water is the ultimate self-pampering method you can do to relieve stress. 

Alternatively, you can also go to the spa and spend the whole day frolicking and getting massages from head to toe. You can also book a facial massage and treatment at your local aesthetic clinic. But if you want to minimize the cost, you can just stay at home and use CBD oils and creams on your skin for it to achieve a youthful glow. 

Go Out On A Brunch or Coffee Date With Friends

With all the things happening at home, it often slips our minds that we still have a life outside of work and family. If it has been a while since you last spent time with your friends, it is time to call them up to brunch so you can catch up on each other’s life happenings. You can try eating at a new restaurant or visiting a new cafe down the street. Then you can go for a walk and do some window shopping afterward. Spending time with other people can really uplift your mood and ease stress temporarily.

Rekindle Old Hobbies (Or Discover New Ones!)

How did you used to spend your free time before you had kids? Another form of self-care is doing things that you love or used to love. If you used to bake, maybe it’s a good idea to rekindle your interest in baking by making your favorite recipe or even trying something entirely new. If you are the sporty type, maybe playing the sport that you love will re-energize you. Alternatively, you can start learning all the things you want to learn before, like taking painting, drawing, or pottery classes. As long as you think an activity might be enjoyable for you, go ahead and try to do it because being a mother should not be holding you back from doing the things you want, albeit during your free time.

Final Word: Be Kind To Yourself

Parenting is a tough and thankless job that you as a mother would have to do for the remainder of your time. It can be easy to get swept into the frenzy of wanting to get everything done for the comfort of everyone in the family. But do not forget that you do not have to exhaust yourself and sacrifice your well-being for it. Remember that you can only provide the best care when you yourself are well taken care of. So be kind to yourself, let yourself breathe, and enjoy the little things in life. Remember that self-care is not a luxury that you can only afford every once in a while. Rather, it is a must to practice self-care and integrate it into your daily routine. It doesn’t have to be expensive or grand. Going on walks, reading a book, and drinking your favorite coffee or tea all count as self-care too.
