9 Ways To Practice Self Care As A Mum

Self Care is so important. Your needs are so important, and you need to take good care of yourself. It helps your confidence, self esteem and helps to build a healthy relationship with yourself. Self Care will make you feel better about yourself, and promote positivity in your life. When you are a mum, self care can be trickier. Harder to find the time to do it, knowing you've got a million and one other things to do. But don't forget, you are needed. Your child need you to be there, to be happy, to be strong. They depend on you, and you matter. Taking that time out just for you, is so important. So I'm sharing a few ways to practice self care as a busy mum!

Before I share my ideas, just remember this - This isn't a checklist. You don't have to go along and do all of these things. Self Care is about taking time out for you. Do something you enjoy, something that makes you feel good. Don't do something because you think you should, or you don't like it. That completely defeats the point! So first things first..

Make Time For Yourself 
As a busy mum, it can be so difficult to find any spare time, but its so important to make that time. Whether it's the time when your little ones are at nursery, while they're busy watching their favourite tv show or even when they've gone to bed. Find the time. When you've found some spare time, grab it with open arms! Instead of doing the things you think you should be doing, do something for yourself. 10 minutes everyday, 1 evening a week, whenever you can. 

Create Something
Express that creative side and create something. Paint a picture, make some home decor, bake a delicious snack, make a Youtube video. The options are endless.

Read A Book
Read that book you've had on your shelf. You know, the one you've been meaning to read but haven't found the time. Or go buy a new book, one that really grabs your attention. Sit down with a cuppa, no tv, no noise. Just you & your book. 

Pamper Yourself
Take a nice long bath. Light some candles. Use bath bombs, and those expensive products you've been saving for a special occasion. Today is a special occasion. Pop a lush hair mask on your hair, paint your nails. Do whatever you fancy.

Exercise
Exercise is so important to achieve a healthy lifestyle, and it helps to promote confidence, self esteem & releases endorphins. 

Watch A Feel Good Movie
My personal favourite. Snuggle in bed with Netflix, or on the sofa under a blanket and watch something happy, something that'll make you feel positive and leave you with a fuzzy feeling inside. 

Write Something
Write in your journal, write a letter, jot down your goals & aspirations or remind yourself of all the positive things that have happened to you that day. 

Get Outside
Go for a nice long walk. Pop your little ones in the pushchair if you want to. Explore somewhere new. 

Do Something That Makes You Feel Like You
This one might be a bit harder to achieve, but it could make you feel amazing. Remember those things you used to do before you had your little ones? Something you loved doing, something that made you feel good, but you just don't seem to do anymore? Go on a spontaneous day out? Go out for coffee with your friends? Dye your hair a crazy colour? What's stopping you doing it now because you have babies?
