3 Ways to Care for Yourself and Others This Holiday Season

I'm a strong believer that you can't take care of anyone else successfully if you don't take care of yourself first. As a busy mom. It's so easy to forget about the essentials with one of them being you. Below, I'm sharing three ways you can care for yourself and others in

Self-care

As a busy mom, these days are essential. Take a moment for self-care. I realized how much that I love having my nails painted. Weekly I make sure to take time out of my schedule to paint my nails. Why? Because it makes me happy. For you, it may be reading a book, going for a walk, or even getting a message. Let's not forget shopping. Schedule those days, you can even turn this into a family event. Maybe the kids want to read at a special place. Like going to your local library or Barnes and Noble. Figure out what works for you and your family.

Learn How To Relax

This is something that I too struggle with and plan on continuing to work on. What is working for me is learning how to be in the moment. If you're really in the moment it won't be so easy for you to react to what's going on around you.

Journal

My parents have always told me that if I don't have anything nice to say. Then don't say anything at all. I love the concept of writing out your thoughts prior to sending a text message or posting it on social media. Whether you're having the best day or a not-so-great day. Take some time out of your day to write down what you're grateful for. Ways that you can improve your day-to-day tasks. Take a moment to reflect on how you're feeling that moment. Trust me, it's wonderful to look back at and reflect on what you're grateful for.

Do you have a self-care day?
