As a Mother, our jobs are to put everyone else before ourselves - that's just the way our minds work, we are prone to care and nurture and make sure our children and our other half have everything that they need in order to be happy. But who do you have to do that for you?
Motherhood can be tough at times, and we all deserve that little treat to make things just that tad bit better. But who said about waiting for someone to come along and save you? We're Mothers; we don't need to wait around for anybody, right ladies?
So the next time you're out doing the grocery shopping and you see that dress that you wanted or that fancy coffee maker - indulge yourself for once!
Have a bestie
What better way of unwinding than with a girlfriend over a nice drink and a good old gossip. Not only that though, but friends are there to lean on when times get tough, so don't worry about feeling like a burden - you'd do the same for them. So when you feel like things are getting to you, open up and tell them about how you're feeling, it will make you feel so much better.
Schedule unplug times
Although you may think that it's near impossible to find free time with all that you do - if you look hard enough, you'll be able to create at least an hour. This is so important to do because it's what will keep you sane and balanced. So every now and then, take an afternoon or an evening off and do something that you enjoy, like going out to watch a movie, or treating yourself to a spa day. Or even if you just decide to stay home and do nothing - that in itself can work wonders on the mind.
A better night's sleep
It's hard enough to get a proper night's rest when you have so many different responsibilities and tasks running around in your head, so how much worse is that going to be if you have a ten-year-old mattress that has broken springs inside? Don't suffer in silence, even if you think you can put up with it ‘for now’, it'll soon start grating away at you physically and mentally. So visit some mattress stores and pick out a brand new piece of heaven - it'll make all your dreams come true... Really.
A lot of people can associate exercise as being a chore, but if you figure out what you love doing, it will work as an amazing stress reliever. Take dancing for example, even if it's just in your living room when no one is around - this counts. So stick on your favorite tunes and dance like no one's watching. - The neighbors don't count...
As you can see it's really not that difficult to treat yourself, in fact, these are all just things that ordinary people do, but now you're a Mother it seems like a luxury. So take them - take as many as you want. You deserve it.
