To get you started creating self-care habits, here are some of my favourite ideas.
Make a cup of tea
Sit quietly with your eyes closed
Lay down on the sofa.
Play your favourite song and listen to it on your phone/laptop
Read an encouraging verse
Lock yourself in your room/toilet and meditate.
Take a walk
Call a friend
Savour a nice long shower
Take a book break
30 minutes or more.
Sit and read a book with your child.
Watch cartoon with your child.
Do some stretching and deep breathing.
Have a digital detox (turn off your phones and connect with those that matter most.
Go on a girls night out
Date with spouse
Have a nap no matter how short.
Schedule a medical checkup
Schedule a spa date @biyouspa
If you need to schedule time in your day to make sure you fit some of these in, please do it. I just began a daily exercise routine and I have to put it on my calendar for daily reminders. It is the best thing I have done for myself and my family, you should do the same. Because you can’t pour from an empty cup mama!
It’s a new month mums, please do better
