Feeling tired and ragged? Us, too. You may feel guilty taking time for yourself, but between carting kids to and from school and activities, preparing meals, keeping a tidy house, and the incredible mental load you are carrying, self-care is a necessity. Taking some time for yourself every day, or at least every week, will make you a better mom.
Go for a monthly manicure, take a walk around the block every night after dinner, soak in the bathtub once the kids are asleep — do whatever you need to do to recharge your batteries so that you can return to your kids relaxed, calm, and ready to take on a new day.
