Being a mother is a life that focuses more on your kids and your family. In the motherhood stage, you tend to forget everything about yourself because your life is focused on your family especially your children. Your day will start about your children and ends with the same. You immediately prepare their food, school related activities, send them to school, fetch them from school, feed them, care for them, sing them a song for them to sleep, cuddle with them, and the routine goes on every single day. You cannot deny the fact that these are all true but you can’t also deny the fact that you also have to think about yourself. Yes, that is correct. Being a mother is not an excuse for you to ignore yourself. Have you even looked at yourself in the mirror? When did the last time you went to the SPA to give yourself some pampering? And when did you last visit your doctor for your annual health checkup? These important things in your life are neglected because you dwelt too much on being a mother. But you need to remember that these things are essential to you. What if your body gave up one day and your doctor advice you to bed rest for months? Who will take care of your children? That is why it is important that you know how to balance your life of being a mother and a person.
So how do you manage your life? You need to have time management. It is difficult but proper planning will help you out on this. You can start by setting your body clock. It is advisable to wake up at 5am. Therefore, you can set an hour exercise every day. You can jog or do some easy exercise steps. This will help maintain your healthy body. It even assists in your entire day activities. This gives you a more energetic feeling and alert body. Aside from exercise, make sure that you have healthy foods inside your fridge. This means that you need to eat healthy foods, too. Do this daily and you will see that you become happier and healthier.
Aside from a healthy body, you can also pamper yourself without sacrificing the time with your kids. The kids love to go to new places and explore so might as well travel with them since travelling is also a stress reliever activity for you. You will surely enjoy it. In fact, you will not consider it is a tiring activity. You can also bring your kids to the SPA since they also offer services for kids. Lastly, always look at yourself in the mirror and smile because you deserve it.
