There was never a time when self-care (taking care of yourself) was more important.
As moms, we tend to focus our care on our children, our husbands, our homes. We forget about ourselves.
A wise woman once told me that in order to be the best mom, wife, friend, boss that we can be, we must nourish ourselves. If we are constantly pouring out to our family and friends, then we will eventually become empty. We must pour into ourselves so that we have the energy to pour into others. This is self-care.
Exercise is an excellent way to care for yourself.
Walking is great exercise and it gets you outside. Vitamin D 🙂
Eating right is essential to self-care. When you are bored or stressed, a lot of people turn to junk food for comfort. The more junk that you eat, the worse you feel, and the less energy that you have. Here are some things that you can do to feel better.
Find something that makes you happy.
It is recommended that you get 8 hours of sleep every night.
When we are worried or stressed it can become hard to get to sleep.
