Let’s be honest, we don’t give ourselves enough time in the week to focus on self-care. Self-care is so broad, for some it’s having a cuppa with their favourite book. To others it’s a long walk, or maybe it’s face masks, a glass of white and an early night. But while it seems simple it can be difficult to fit into our busy schedule, especially as moms!
When we do give ourselves that extra time for self-care we can feel guilty. We feel overwhelmed with the thought of other tasks we should be doing and can then end up thinking we don’t deserve this time-out. But that’s where we go wrong… no matter what our week or day is like we still deserve some time out.
Your family love you and in order to give them (and you) the best version of yourself you need to mind yourself!
It can be a struggle to take time out, so we wanted to ask mom’s for their advice when it comes to self-care. We chatted to MumTribe and asked ‘What are your top self care tips for mums?’
“Let me start this off by saying sometimes I should listen to my own advice because this mums cup is almost empty right now!
Since starting Mum Tribe I’ve made sure to surround myself with positive, empowering people who make me feel good about myself. So that’s without doubt tip number one. Look at your circle, as a mum you need people around you that will support you and give your energy to them – when you surround yourself with good people you will always have someone to support you.”
“And my final self care tip – book yourself a ticket for one of our Mum Tribe virtual events, from expert talks to wellness workshops, social events and more we have something for every mum to refill that cup to the brim. And on that note I’m off to have a shower drink a litre of water and put away my phone”
