5 Ways A Mother Should Pamper Herself

August 25, 2012  |  

As a mother of 2, there are some days when I get stressed and overwhelmed by my everyday responsibilities. But somewhere between washing bottles, doing laundry, preparing meals, and changing diapers- I insist on making a little time for me.

Being a mom means we carry a lot of weight on our shoulders. We must always be in control to keep our house and homes in order. Our families depend on us to maintain a healthy, happy quality of life. But there’s no way we can do this without a little pampering of our own. So drop the kids off with your parents, leave them with daddy, or swap them out with another mother for once. I’ve got 5 ways us mothers need to pamper ourselves even if just once a month…

Manicures and Pedicures! It is extremely important that as a woman, you look and feel your best. The hardest thing to maintain is a stylish colored mani-pedi, but with the new shellac uv-gel top coat polish now at all salons, you can get a manicure that lasts. Invite your closest girl friends out and enjoy a day getting a foot soak, hand massage, and a neatly finished manicure & pedicure. Even with constant dish washing, this non-chip, no drying time polish will stand strong for weeks to come!

Get Your Hair Styled! A woman knows her hair is her glorious beauty, so don’t let motherhood make you forget that! Get your hair washed, roller set, blown out, cut, and styled every now and then. Get a weave, get braids, just try something new, so you nor anyone else will believe being a mom stole your beauty away.

Take a Spa Day! This can get pricey depending on your unique needs but a day at the spa is always worth it! Do comparative pricing online and choose an affordable nearby spa that can provide you with a soothing bath, facials, and massages. Every mom needs this time to intimately experience a day of relaxation and comfort.

Go Out on the Town! If you have a man in your life, it’s time for him to steal you away for a night. If not, your girls can do the same. Get dressed up from head to toe and get ready for an evening of wine and fine dining. Choose a spot with your favorite music, a full drink menu, and a great crowd. Eat slowly, worry-free, and enjoyably. This is now a simple pleasure you will only rarely indulge in.
