There’s one demographic that needs a special standard of self care – moms! Moms are typically the ones most likely to not only handle their own life, but those of their family members as well.
Their spouse and children usually take the forefront of their needs, and they put themselves last when it comes to self care. In the book Self Care for Moms by Sara Robinson, you’ll discover more than 150 methods to take care of yourself while taking care of everyone else, too.
Nobody is going to ask you to give up the care of your family. We all know most moms would decline that option, and for good reason! But neglecting your needs is also detrimental to your family, so you have to know how to add yourself to the mix when it comes to nurturing the needs of your loved ones.
The actionable steps in this book aren’t anything you’ll dread implementing. They’re just what a mom needs – quick and easy self care tips. The author kept the busy lifestyle of a mom in mind when she created this list, so no matter how chaotic your schedule is, you’ll be able to use this advice.
The best thing about this book is that your family will reap the rewards of a mom who is stronger, healthier and happier than ever before. Your children and your spouse can tell when you’re feeling drained, and it makes them feel guilty for needing you to tend to their needs as well.
When you begin caring for yourself, you have more physical energy and stamina to be on the go longer. You also have more mental acuity to handle, not only your own stress load, but the emotional needs of your kids and other family members.
Most moms complain about having no time to take care of themselves. But these tips are practical and will nurture your mind, body and soul in a way that fits into the most strenuous schedule.
You can buy the book and start implementing an activity for self care that instant. You won’t have to do a lot of heavy planning or schedule shifting to make it work. There is a wide range of options for you, depending on how much time you have to devote to yourself.
You’ll find tips that cover 5 minutes, 15, 30 – or even an hour. It can be something simple like taking a quick breather to listen to a favorite song – or something like spending an hour to meet a friend for lunch or get a manicure to give you some pep for the day.
