Self-Care Tips for Working Moms

Whether you work outside the home, from home, or as a full-time mom, time is hard to come by. As a working mom, self-care is probably the last thing on your mind. You are trying to juggle a demanding job, a long commute, childcare, meals, marriage, and so much more. You are probably used to putting everyone else’s needs before your own.

But lately, it seems like self-care is something that everyone is talking about. It has become a popular topic of conversation for a reason. Self-care is something everyone needs to make a priority, which is easier said than done. On the surface, self-care may look frivolous or overly indulgent, but it is something that is very necessary, no matter what stage of life you are in.

Schedule Time For Self-Care

When you are a parent to a young child and also working full-time, like me, self-care must be intentional. Unless you specifically schedule time in your day or week to take time for yourself, it most likely won’t happen. Depending on your schedule, your kids’ schedules, and your partner’s schedule, you will be able to find some additional time for yourself. Mornings can be a great time for daily self-care if you don’t mind getting up before your kids. Weekends and nighttime can also be possibilities for allotting time. Self-care does not have to take a long time or happen every day, but it should happen on a regular basis. Use childcare options if necessary.
