Live Healthily: Drink water and feed your body good food. You deserve it. You work hard all day and you and your body deserve to be healthy. Sure you will often find me snacking on junk food -see above pictures- and eating way too much chocolate, but my body always feels better when I eat something healthy. This also goes for drinking water. I love water. It’s so good for your body and really helps give you energy. Did you also know that drinking water can help you lose weight?!
Decompress When the Day is Over: Before you go to bed find some time to just sit back and relax. Maybe watch a favorite show, read the new book you borrowed from the library. Do this every day for yourself and for your kids. give yourself some time to just veg. If the laundry is piling up don’t worry about it, it will be there tomorrow. And tomorrow, when you tackle it, you’ll be happy you took care of yourself first.
What are your favorite ways to take care of yourself as a mom? In what ways have you seen a change in your life/children’s lives when you take care of yourself first?
I challenge you all to find time every day to take care of you and to make you a priority for once, not in a selfish way, but in a way that makes you feel ready to tackle your day.
