5 Ways Mommies Can Pamper Themselves
As soon as the baby comes, everything becomes about him. You’re now suddenly living your life for this precious little human who you’ve been waiting for since forever. But as beautiful this experience is, it can also be very consuming.
To ensure you’re able to be fully there for your baby, it is also important to take care of yourself. You deserve some self lovin’. And here are a few things you could do to make sure you get some.
- Join a class, or an activity
When everything is about your baby, you need to take time out to make something about you. You can try yoga, art, mindfulness, anything that falls into your interests and budget. You also don’t need to stick to one thing! There are different activities happening in the city throughout the city. Use your events tab on Facebook to stay updated and pick something for the week.
It doesn’t have to last too long and you can work out the babysitting logistics with someone in your family. Your growth and interests are not to be taken lightly.
- Maintain a bed-time selfcare routine
Your chaotic life very likely makes it tough to give your body the care it needs. While you can incorporate a healthy amount of water and greens in your diet, something that’ll help even more is having a bedtime routine. Cleanse, do a face mask, moisturize. You could pick whatever combination you feel works best for you.
Having a routine will mentally and physically prepare you for bed, will relax you, and will remind you that you deserve to be cared for as well.
- Remind yourself of all your accomplishments
You are a warrior who is handling so many things at once. You went through so many things in life, and now you have gone through a pregnancy, you have given birth, you’re a partner, and a mother.
Whatever achievements you have, write them down and put them where you can see them regularly. It’s important to remember you are a strong and capable individual who has accomplished a lot in life.
Sometimes motherhood is tough and mommies tend to forget how fierce they can be.
- Have a girl’s night out
Whenever you can squeeze it in, and your schedules match, have your girlfriends get together for a girl’s night out! Hanging out with your best girls can be a very therapeutic experience. It doesn’t even have to be an expensive occasion. Pick someone’s house and grab chips and dip, or order in, or make something together at home. Watch a movie, play board games or just catch up! Not only will the familiarity warm you up, but the sense that not everything has changed will help you feel better about the other major changes in your life.
- Date night is a must
Every week you should take out at least one night with your husband where you two can just be alone. A baby can often cause a bit of a strain on the marriage because the baby can take up a lot of time. But if you and your husband work together, this can easily be avoided.
If you can afford it, go out to a nice dinner. Otherwise you can order in or ask someone to help make dinner for the night so it doesn’t stress you two out. But whether or not you’re going out, both of you should definitely dress up and bring your best selves.
Remember, taking out time for yourself is important and completely justified. You deserve it.
