Need a “you” day to pamper yourself? Feeling burnt-out, worn-out, and just tired? Then this is for you! As moms, it can be so easy to forget about ourselves. We give 110% of ourselves to everyone else that we often neglect ourselves. This isn’t healthy or beneficial long-term. Moms need a recharge just as much as anyone else.
But what are you going to do about the kids? Leave that to us. We offer a wide variety of fun events, run by our all-star staff who specialize in fun and child engagement! Give your local franchise a call, or click here to schedule a fun event for the kids while you take care of yourself.
You might even want to get other moms in and plan a pampered mom day! Need some ideas?
We got you.
Here are four ideas on how to pamper yourself while we take care of the kids:
1. Give Yourself Permission…
Many women struggle with taking a break. We can feel guilty for spending time on ourselves. We often allow negative thoughts and feelings to deprive us of self-care. It’s human to need a break. Everyone needs a recharge at some point. Give yourself permission to breathe. Take a moment for yourself. It’s ok to focus on you.
2. Upgrade the “At Home Spa” Experience
We all know the drill with Spa Day, but let’s upgrade it to the next level. Before we arrive at your house, spend some time decorating your bathroom. Whip out those candles and relaxation plants. Aloe Vera, Basil, Lavender, and Chamomile are excellent choices for relieving stress and anxiety. If you’re not a “green thumb”, fake plants are great as well! Spicing your bathroom up with a bit of greenery can help your space feel less like a bathroom and more like the getaway retreat you deserve.
3. Pick up an Adult Craft Kit
Explore your crafty side with a pre-made kit in something that interests you. From painting to calligraphy to making felt succulents, pre-made craft kits can help you detach from stress. You may also discover a cool, new hobby at an affordable price. Creativity can bring blessings to you and to others. Others can appreciate and admire the beauty of your artwork. Even if the craft doesn’t turn out quite as planned, it can serve as a great expectation vs. reality post on social media, giving laughter to your friends and family. Pre-made craft kits are a great way to express yourself, let go of stress, bring joy to others, and possibly help you discover a new passion.
4. Experiment with a New Coffee or Tea
Whether you’re a coffee or tea person, find a new favorite drink with this hack. Before we arrive, google a recipe that you’re dying to try, order the ingredients, and treat yourself while we’ve got the kids. Nothing compliments the relaxing atmosphere better than a new comfort drink. If you feel like sharing the love, post your drink on social media with the recipe for all of your friends to try as well!
- Additional Idea: Invite a friend or two over to make their own drinks! Compare drinks to see which is your favorite.
In the hustle of life, it can be easy to allow self-care to slip to the bottom of our to-do list. You may wrestle with guilt for spending time on yourself. Don’t! Taking care of yourself is vitally important. Pause, breathe and give yourself permission to pamper yourself in one of these new ways while the kids are having a blast with us.
