It can be something as small as making sure you drink enough water and take your daily medication, to going to your yearly dental exam.
Not sure where to start?
Trust me, mama, I now all about not making enough time for myself. It’s tough when you’re a busy mom! I have two toddlers to chase after…I can barely go to the bathroom alone!
Since I became a mom, I strongly believe now that self-care is important for every mom.
I’m an example of why self-care is important for every mom.
I’ll use myself as a good example of why every mom needs some self-care in her life.
After I became a mom, I stopped taking care of myself. I would feel guilty if I did ANYTHING just for ME. Yes, true! I would consume all of my time and energy into my newborn baby boy…and when I would practice self-care, well, the guilt would be so unbearable that I wouldn’t do anything else for myself months and months later.
This was a CRAZY thought in my head, but– I believed that doing things for MYSELF made me a bad mom.
After my second son was born, I was diagnosed with postpartum depression. I would literally be running on E, yet I would STILL be giving my family every last bit of my energy and happiness. That was the ultimate recipe for disaster, and it made me a very moody mama!
I started taking care of myself and I was slowly brought back to life….I began to make MYSELF a priority again!
Self-care can be easy.
I will tell you that self-care is easier than you may have imagined, mama.
