Benefits of self-care as a mom

Updated: Aug 31

I can easily be frustrated as a mom, especially when the demands of childcare, homecare, and work or school get hectic. Yes, there are days I just want to pull the covers over my head and go drifting back to sleep in la-la land (thanks to my 5 am alarm clock kids, that rarely happens).

What can I do though to help to ensure that I keep going and still remain true to who I am as a mom and wife? It is called SELF-CARE.

That word kind of sounds selfish! Did I say a word that your mother, grandmother, or even great grandmother would shake their heads at? Absolutely not!

I know that for me when I am off-balance, my family, work, relationships get the brunt of it. Therefore I see it as a necessary step in and of itself to create a more peaceful you, that can translate to your family, friends, and co-workers as well.

Self-care is important for every mom in their everyday life. Self-care is not neglecting our responsibilities to our family in the chase of a dreamy vacation in Aruba, relaxing on a beach, and sipping on mimosa (give me a moment...). No, it's not my reality right now, and maybe it's not yours too.

What is self-care anyway?

Self-care is making sure that we are mentally, emotionally, and physically ready to take on the challenges of everyday life.

Let's take a look at the benefits of self-care and why it's necessary to make it a priority so that not only do you benefit but also your family benefits as well.

Are you a mom in need of self-care? How have you been balancing your self-care needs?
