You juggle kids, work, home, volunteering and everything else in between. Are you really enriching your life by doing everything? It’s tough to be supermom. As a site completely dedicated to reminding moms how important it is to take time for themselves and providing time-saving tips we know first hand how hard it is to turn off your “mom button” and just relax sometimes.
It’s true that when moms, and women in general are stressed, overwhelmed and tired, we have a shorter fuse. We become irritable, and it’s more difficult to handle the challenges of being with children and spouses.
Logically, you know that running yourself on empty isn’t good for your health or your family. But the instinct to be a devoted mother means operating in overdrive. You want your children to be happy, and you desire to give them every possible life experience, even at the expense of your own needs. It’s important to step back, breathe and take at least 10 minutes for yourself each day. On the days where you can’t fit a single extra moment into your schedule be sure to have special places in your home that give you peace. For me, this place is my bedroom. It’s not only a sanctuary for me but, also for my husband and I as a couple. Even as a little girl I remember giving my bed the respect it deserves – luxurious sheets, quality pillows and throw pillows for the final touches. Today it’s a trait I still believe in, especially since we spend so much time there. Did you know: “The average adults sleeps nearly 3,000 hours per year, ” says Wikipedia.
A Cozy Robe:
Anyone who’s ever enjoyed the experience of a day at the spa knows what a pleasurable, tranquil experience it can be to spend a little time pampering yourself and investing in your own well-being. But inevitably, the time spent at the spa has to end, and you find yourself back in the real world. But does it really have to stop there? It shouldn’t. You deserve to feel the warmth of a good robe each and every day. Take the time to find yourself a full coverage, absorbent, lightweight spa robe. Although they aren’t the most sexy, they sure feel amazing in winter months, when you’re not feeling so well or just want to warm up.
A Perfectly Scented Candle:
Some candles when lit release a faint, yet continuous stream of floral and herbal essential oils into the air as they burn. When a person inhales the essential oil vapors, the oil molecules enter the respiratory system and ultimately get imbibed into the bloodstream, thereby preventing and treating certain illness in the body. Moreover, the oil released has chemical properties that help one to relax, thereby reducing stress. Aromatherapy fragrances released by some candles can affect a person’s psychological and physical state. Scent combinations are endless. Did you know that there is an artform to fragrance layering? The right combination of lavender, basil or rose, for example, could provide you with the perfect environment for relaxation.
A Throw Blanket:
Blankets are basically used by everyone and anyone to keep themselves warm and protect from the cold. There are varied types of throw blanket, so if you are going to shop for throw blanket then you should first decide the amount of warmth, comfort and style you need for the blankets and then choose them according to your needs. There is just something so wonderful about wrapping yourself in a warm blanky, whether you are a kid or an adult. Each night I sleep with my own personal fur blanket that is used to cuddle up to and just in case my husband tosses and turns to leave me without sheets and the duvet.
