Spring is usually a time people focus on cleaning their home. It can also be a time to spend cleaning your body. Sometimes as a parent it is hard to find time to feel fresh. You have to make sure you take care of the kids and make sure your spouse is happy. That doesn’t often leave much self-care time. Sure you’d like to take a long luxurious bath or shower, but you just don’t have time between the soccer practice, dance recitals, and not to mention the dinners that must be prepared day in and day out. So what is a busy Mom to do? On the one hand, you have to take care of your own daily needs in order to take care of your family. However, realistically there are just not enough hours in the day to get everything done. In this article, you’ll learn some quick tips to help you take care of yourself and how to feel fresh while you take care of your family.
Feel Fresh Tips for Busy Moms
- Take Several Short Breaks
Sometimes it may be impossible to get several hours to yourself. However, you may be able to sneak fifteen to thirty minutes to yourself while the kids are playing. Don’t be tempted to use this time to work. Instead do whatever you do to relax. Whether it’s reading a romance novel, sewing, or knitting, use your “you time” to do something fun.
- Incorporate Family Into Your Workout Routine
Exercise is important to your overall health and well-being. This is something else that parents typically don’t have a lot of time for. If you find yourself routinely missing exercise time, consider doing something that everyone can do. Maybe you can go walking with everyone. If you have a small child, just put him or her in a stroller and you’re good to go. If you like going to the gym, maybe you can find one with child care so you can bring your kids with you. You will feel so fresh after your workout routine.
- Save Something Special For Yourself
Always have a few things that are just yours. One good thing to spoil yourself with would be some special wipes for your bottom. Ladies, you especially could use something extra during that time of the month. Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Wipes are fabulous for this as they leave you feeling clean and fresh when you’re in a situation where you can’t take ten showers to get rid of feeling yucky.
