Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Another Monday another week to get through. For today’s blog post I decided to post about my mommy self care routine. I thought it was a great time to post this topic due to being stuck in doors with two kids. Being a parent I know during this time it gets a bit tough here and there. My one year old was so use to morning and afternoon walks, so it’s a big change on changing up her schedule. So here i’ll share my tips on and what I have been doing during these times to keep myself sane lol.
My Favourite Self Care
When it comes to self care, I always make a routine around what relaxes me the most. I always try and do this now and then because I feel like it rejuvenates me right away. I am also really big on self care and winding down because I feel like I suffer from low iron so am sometimes tired and feel I have low energy. Therefore because of this I always need to find new ways to help me throughout the day.
Taking a bath or a shower is my top go to for relaxing. Whenever I have the free time to go take a shower I take it. Yes, no matter what time it is to be honest. Take a shower and relax your mind. This can help you 100% for sure. Another thing I love doing while I shower is playing my favourite songs this gets me in a great mood. as I mentioned music, I love even playing that now and then. Even when my kids are around I play some music this also gets them tired afterwards and lets then wine down. Especially my oldest this works best because she active 24/7. Yes I can never get her to relax so the best ideas if you also have a son or daughter like this is to pick something that can help you both.
My blog. Of course this is another relaxation suggestion. If you are a mommy blogger like myself taking the time out from your kids if you can to work on your blog or organizing ideas for it helps. You can always get your kids to even help! If you love blogging mommy tips etc get your kids to give you ideas. To be honest kids are the best brain stormer to me. For example I love blogging lifestyle, fashion and beauty. Asking my six year old on fashion etc this can help me with my future post planning this can help the feel involved. In other words my next favourite is Netflix. I mean who doesn’t love to just binge watch movies now and then. Now and then I sneak off and just have some me time and watch a couple shows or movies. I find this helps me on my stress level and relax. Of course I also use this idea on my kids.
Involving the Kids
Nails, I don’t do as much but whenever I get the chance to do mine I try lol. But I mentioned it because I find this idea helps with my six year old. This calms her down also and it creates a mommy and daughter bonding moment. When I do my nails she always comes running in for me to do her nails also.
So this can be an idea if you’ve got girls. In addition, YouTube is added to my list because I love now and then on my spare time watching beauty channels. I absolutely love beauty so this is something I find entertaining. Another great idea where it can get all your family involved to relax but have fun together is playing board games. This is something my husband got me into because he loves board games. And I found this helps my kids have fun, us bond as a family and keep the chaos on the low.
Overall, it’s okay to have time for you during the stay in time. I hope my post gathered you some ideas and ways to relax and have some mommy you time. Also help you come up with ways to involve the kids while you all stay in during this time. I hope you all are doing well and is staying in and keeping safe.
