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!
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).
Just like so many people, I’ve been through the ringer. I’ve fallen prey to depression as a young girl, adolescent, single young woman, new wife, and run down mom. It seems that I’ve always been prone to depression. Post pardon, post breakup, mid-life crisis, and […]
Stress. F*ck are we still talking about this? If you’ve been following the last 2 posts about this shitty S word, then I hope you are feeling better. If you’ve missed the last few posts you should catch up here & here . To recap, […]
