How Busy Moms Can Pamper Themselves Post-Holidays

The holidays can be tough for even the most resilient of mamas. Hosting, keeping the kids occupied, traveling, and catering to difficult family members can be seriously draining. This is why this time of year is critical for self-care.

"As moms, we tend to run ourselves ragged trying to be everything to everyone – so much so that we often forget about ourselves in the process. And not only do we forget about our own self-care, but many of us also feel 'mom guilt' when we do try to treat ourselves," according to Care. "However, the fact of the matter is that self-care is vitally important to the healthy function of any family."

You deserve to treat yourself, even in the smallest of ways. The following are some ideas to put yourself first and shake the holiday stress.

Plan a mini getaway.

A recent survey found that 37% families say that vacations make them happy, making it the activity that makes families the happiest. But what about your individual happiness? Plan a weekend getaway with yourself, your best friend, or your partner for some fun and relaxation. Even the act of planning it can provide some much-needed relief.

Make time to unplug.

After answering demands at work and playing supermom at home, many mothers kick back with some television and a phone in their hand. While you might not realize it, constant scrolling can introduce a whole other level of stress and ruin your sleep. Pick up a book, start a non-electronic hobby, or write in your journal instead. You might find that your tension levels drop even more.

Exercise.

As a busy mom, it can be difficult to find time to work out. But it's so important to do so. By finding this time to move your body, you can get some much-needed you time while taking care of your body and mind.

Schedule a hair appointment.

The average woman changes her hairstyle 104 times in her life, and there is good reason for it. A new haircut can help you feel rejuvenated and confident. It's also nice to feel pampered while spending time at the salon.

Learn a new skill.

When was the last time you challenged yourself? By learning a new skill or completing a new goal, you will feel strong and capable. While rock climbing or learning French might sound daunting at first, the hardest part is actually starting.

Try out a fun beauty product.

A new shade of lipstick can go a long way. A recent Dove survey found that seven in 10 women considered a "beauty product" to be any product that makes them feel more confident. Find what makes you feel amazing and have fun with it.

By taking this much-needed time to yourself, you will feel more relaxed, vibrant, and in control of your life. These good feelings can translate to your parenting, making your family closer. And remember that you don't need to implement all of the above items immediately. Sometimes self care is best introduced little by little, as small pockets of pampering can go a long way.
