Feb is the month for love!
It’s a well-known fact that February is the month of love. And whether you go giddy over the thought of flowers, chocolates, fancy dinner dates, dressing up & being pampered or not,
I’m here to remind you not to forget about another type of love….. your own self-love!
I want you all to take a moment to remember how flippin fabulous you really are, how hard you work & how long your hours can be. We are all over worked (& underpaid)….. but starting today, we are going to start treatin’ ourselves on the regular!
We are SO worth it!
Learning some simple self-love tips & tricks today is just the beginning of a new habit that’s gonna make us better humans & make these long days (ok short dark days) a bit more bearable. Below are some posters you can click, share, tweet, re-post, download and even print and pin up in areas you will see everyday to help you get started!
Making a non-negotiable list (or an absolute yes/no list) is so important to self-love & happiness. And you know what they say….. happy mom, happy home (ok, I made that up…. but they should say that)!
Making your list doesn’t need to be complicated or stressful either, try these 5 questions to get you started!
Supporting your bod & mind is crucial to feeling good. Stress, anxiety & the daily dealings of kid tantrums, long hours, a bad diet & bill paying can leave you beyond exhausted.
But don’t stress out 😉 there are plenty of safe natural helpers that can leave us feeling very well supported! (of course you can always try a glass of red & a nice dark chocolate too).
These supplements are a great start (feel free to reach out for a free consult if you have further queries about these supps, there’s a book appointment tab at the bottom of the page)!
Finding (& taking) guilt free me time is hard. Wow is it hard sometimes. But you’ve heard it time and again, put your mask on first. And for good reason. A tired burnt out mama is good for no-one! Taking me time doesn’t need to be a weekend away (although if you have the time check out the mini retreats below!)…. a bath, meditating, going for a hike or run, or just enjoying a cup of hot tea quietly is sometimes all it takes.
Make a list & see how many you can treat yourself to in a day or a week!
They say stress and lack of sleep is worse then a bad diet, but a good nights rest is harder to find than me time am I right? Sleep is the solid base and foundation that we need to build our good health on. My mom always told me to nap when the baby naps & leave the chores for later (a tip I have always followed), but that can be tough too. Don’t ever feel bad for hitting the sack at an early time (730pm is totally acceptable some nights ;). If you’re not resting that hard-working mind and bod, then you’re gonna be a rusty mess & coffee just isn’t gonna help (it could actually hurt).
Ah Love… do you feel it in the air? Are you ready to take it to the next level with these easy and solid tips? Give one or more of these a try for a week and see how you feel.
