What is self-care?
Self-care has been somewhat of a buzzword (phrase? buzzphrase?) lately. Self-care is simply doing things to take care of your mental, emotional or physical health. The idea of self-care can look different for everyone, but it isn’t something that should be ignored. Self-care isn’t just being selfish either. It isn’t only considering your own needs and ignoring anyone else. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Taking care of yourself, whether mentally, physically or emotionally, puts you in a better place to take care of others. Obviously, this is something that is incredibly important for moms. Self-care for moms doesn’t have to mean a week-long tropical vacation or a full spa day (although those things sound nice) it can be something as simple as taking 20 minutes to read a magazine that you enjoy.
Now that you have an idea of what self-care is, and what it isn’t, here are 10 self-care ideas for moms.
