6 Relaxation Tips for Busy Moms

relaxation for busy momIt seems that the average mom never gets enough R&R (Relax and Relaxation) Moms take time out for everyone else, they meet the demands of their jobs, take care of the home, time at soccer games and even sometimes involved in the community, but who takes care of mom? If you are a busy mom, learn to value yourself as a person and schedule personal time out for yourself, I think it should be a requirement.
Personal time is a right of being a person. Each of us has the capacity to nurture others but that type of care takes its toll on you mentally, physical and emotionally if you allow it.
A car is filled with gas to make it run. Eventually the gas runs out and your car won’t move unless the car is replenished with fuel. The same goes for you. Emotional issues can develop when you don’t take the time to take care of your emotional well-being, not to mention the physical results of emotional neglect.

Mom time refuels the tank so that you can give to your family as well as yourself in equal measure. Don’t be ashamed to sit for fifteen minutes doing nothing. In the springtime, relaxing in a hammock under a tree is the perfect getaway from the pressures of the day. Reading a book for 30 minutes can also seem like heaven to many moms.

Here are a few tips to help you fit in much needed “mom” time:

1. Get up early if you have to. When you have kids, the day begins at a hurried pace. Once you hit the ground running, there is no stopping you. Waking 30 minutes to an hour ahead of time means quiet solitude to drink your coffee, read a book, meditate or listen to music.

2. Turn ordinary experiences into major events. When you take a bath, add candles, bubble bath, quiet music and/or an inflatable bath pillow. Your regular bath has now become a spa level experience. If you watch a movie, turn out the lights, pop a bag of microwave popcorn and curl up on the couch.

3. Ask your significant other for help. Kids love their mothers but time spent with dad is important too. Let them bond with dad while you go shopping for a new outfit or root around in the garden. Since the time is yours, do whatever you like.

4. Use the Boy Scout motto. Always be prepared and you can spend more time in a relaxed mode. Fix lunches the night before. Iron clothes for the next day and place backpacks by the front door so kids can grab them on their way out. The fewer things you have to do throughout the day, the calmer you will be with your family and not experience burnout.

5. Take exercise breaks. When you get a few minutes the last thing you want to do is exercise but getting a little physical activity in your day has far-reaching implications. Exercise helps you to think clearly and stretches the muscles. Also, stress will drain away as powerful endorphins are released into your system. Do jumping jacks during a television commercial or jog to the bus stop to pick up the kids.

6. Laugh at regular intervals. Keep a funny calendar cube on your desk or subscribe to a daily joke site. Laughing releases stress and can lift your spirits significantly. It also keeps the abs tight.

Moms, take care of you. Your family would miss you if you were not around to love and care for them. You owe it to yourself and you deserve a break from the daily hustle and bustle.

Simple Relaxing Tips for Busy Moms

It seems like there is never enough time to take a break for the weary. And, the weary person is usually mom. You find that most often moms are too busy taking care of home and everybody else, but who takes care of mom?If you are a busy mom, it is very important that learn to value yourself as a person and schedule personal time.

Personal time is a right of being a person. Each of us has the capacity to nurture others but that type of care takes its toll.

A car is filled with fuel to make it run. Eventually the fuel runs out and your car won’t move unless the car is replenished with fuel. The same goes for you. Emotional issues can develop when you don’t take the time to take care of your emotional well-being, not to mention the physical results of emotional neglect, so I hope you are starting to see why it is important that you start to take better care and make time for yourself.

Being able to take some Mom time refuels the tank so that you can give to your family as well as yourself in equal measure. When you give to yourself you are actually more vital and energetic and you actually have more to give back to the world. Don’t feel ashamed to sit for fifteen minutes doing nothing. In the springtime, relaxing on your patio or even next to the pool is the perfect getaway from the pressures of the day. Reading a book for 30 minutes can also seem like heaven to many moms.

Here are a few tips to help you fit in much needed “mom” time:

1. Get up 30 minutes early. When you have kids, the day begins at a hurried pace. Once you hit the ground running, there is no stopping you. Waking 30 minutes to an hour ahead of time means quiet solitude to drink your coffee, read a book, meditate or listen to music. Give it a try and I challenge you not to hit the alarm clock. Jump start your day!

2. Turn Ordinary into Extraordinary. When you take a bath, add candles, bubble bath, quiet music. Your regular bath has now become a spa level experience. If you watch a movie, turn out the lights, pop a bag of microwave popcorn and curl up on the couch do it and enjoy every minute of it.

3. Ask Dad To Pitch In. Kids love their mothers but time spent with dad is important too. Let them bond with dad while you go shopping for a new outfit, get your nails done, or just have lunch or coffee with the girls, get a massage,  Since the time is yours, do whatever you like the possibilities are endless.

4. Use the Boy Scout motto. Always be prepared and you can spend more time in a relaxed mode. Fix lunches the night before. Iron clothes for the next day and place backpacks by the front door so kids can grab them on their way out.

Schedule Some Me Time

Are you finding it hard to find time for yourself? Does your day-to-day routine include taking care of your children, husband, and working a full time job, basically making sure everyone elses needs are met. What many of us fail to realize that taking a little me time is one of the most important things you can do for your family, realizing your health and happiness are important to the whole family.

Make an appointment with yourself today for some me time. It doesnt require a lot of time, money, or planning. All it requires is a commitment to yourself and realizing that you are worth it and deserve it.

Take 20 minutes today to rejuvenate your mind, body, style, and spirit.

Below are some tips to renew and refresh when youre feeling overwhelmed and underappreciated.

Listen to Music

Music can instantly change your mood. It is a good pick me up when you are feeling a little down. Try listening to music as you are preparing dinner or just lying down or relaxing. Load up that MP3 player with your favorite soothing or energizing music.

Soak A Way The Stress

Taking a nice shower is so therapeutic to the soul. Add a few scented candles (Brazilian Jackfruit is my favorite) and lather the body with an exfoliating shower gel and how about adding some rose petals to the water as well.

Manicure and Pedicure

Pay some extra attention to your hands and feet today. You dont have to run to the salon to spend extra money you dont have. This is something you can do at home. Check out the Happy Foot Collection and hand treatment and treat yourself to a lavender foot spa and tangerine lychee manicure. Have dad take the kids to the park or movies and schedule a lifestyle gathering (spa party) at home with your girlfriends.

Light a Candle
Aromatherapy feels good to the soul. Scented candles are an inexpensive way to relieve some stress. Soothing aromas can help reduce that overwhelming feeling and create a relaxing atmosphere.

Exercise
You dont have to get all sweaty or have some vigorous routine, a 30-minute walk in the morning can help boost your energy and sharpen you mentally, and decrease stress. Enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer as you soothe your soul.

Taking a few extra minutes each week to indulge yourself doesnt just feel good; it’s good for you. Reducing stress keeps you healthy and happy. It improves your mood and much more. The key is to schedule a little me time just as you would a regular appointment, so it becomes part of your everyday lifestyle instead of a guilty pleasure.
