Being a mom is a 24/7 job. Don’t forget moms don’t ever call in sick.
As a first time mom I am just learning to balance being a mom to Liam my 3 1/2 month old son, having a strong relationship with the love of my life Ryan, keeping up with our home and taking care of our 3 cats as well as making sure I am the best Holistic Nutritionist and Life Coach that I can be.
But the most important thing I have to remember is to take care of me. You can have a balanced life and think clearly if your not taking care of yourself.
First thing to taking care of yourself is making sure you have a balanced and nutritious diet and that you are drinking enough water. If you are having issues with your diet please feel free to contact me and together we will work on a healthy meal plan that will work for you. email@example.com Also it’s extremely important to get daily exercise.
One thing that is also really important is that you get a little time to your self to unwind without any distractions. As a mom we need some space for ourselves because our family always comes first and sometimes we forget our own needs.
You don’t need hours of time just a simple 30 minutes to an hour a day. I know , I know. How do you even find time to do anything for yourself. Well sometimes you just need to let the laundry or dishes go not like they are going anywhere.
My simple way of having time to myself is I let Ryan take Liam for an hour. They have some daddy and son bonding time which is always very important as well.
While they are playing and hanging out I run myself a bath, light some candles, grab a glass of wine, some good organic chocolate and a good book. I add some bubbles , Epsom salt or lavender oil to the bath as well.
The hour I get every night to unwind helps make sure that I am fresh and ready to take care of my family everyday with a clear head.
So stop what your doing and take some time for your self. Even if its only taking a short 30 minute nap.
