You Know What You Need? To #TreatYoSelf This Mother’s Day

You Know What You Need? To #TreatYoSelf This Mother’s Day

Every Mother’s Day arrives and most of us are all like “I don’t want anything“. And you know what? We do want things. We want our kids to behave. We want to feel appreciated. We want to be nurtured with spa days that we didn’t have to ask for because our loved ones feel like we’re doing THAT great of a job that they surprise us with them. But you know what happens most Mother’s Days? We get handmade cards (which I personally love), kids that give zero effs about us wanting to feel appreciated, and spouses that are consistently questioning what to get us–if we have them.

Well, enough is enough. I’m declaring this Mother’s Day the National #TreatYoSelf Day for moms. So ladies, figure out what you want for yourselves this Mother’s Day and let’s make it happen FOR US!

Stop Talking About Self Care And Be About It

Seriously.

I feel like we’ve all been on this huge self-care movement but we aren’t really doing it. And by we, I also mean me. I have post after post after post (yes, all of these are clickable so go ahead and get click happy) on self-care and do you know I’m terrible at even just giving myself a little bit of grace in life? Wait. Let me amend that statement. I WAS terrible but listen, I’m subscribing to this whole #treatyoself movement hardcore.

You know why?

Because I deserve it. And so do you.

Mom friends. Mother's Day is around the corner. Don't beg and wish upon a star to get what you REALLY want this year. Nope. #TreatYoSelf and love up on you this day!

What Does This #TreatYoSelf Even Look Like?

Excellent question.

For some it’s taking long vacations by yourself while exploring places you’ve never been. For others, it’s sleeping in or doing their own nails. The important thing with #TreatYoSelf is doing something that makes YOU feel loved and nurtured. Forget what works for everyone else–do you boo boo, do you.

This Mother's Day, #TreatYoSelf. Really. Take care of you. Do the things you want to do. Lay in the sun all day sipping these CrunchyMomMosa's. Relax. Unwind. Appreciate you and the work that you do for your family. No one is going to love you like you!Click To Tweet

I asked the new contributors to TCM (aren’t they pretty awesome?) what this looked like to them and these were there responses:

For me, self care is getting to spend time away from my kids. My husband owns a business so he works every day except Sunday and looooong hours. So I really need that alone time. Going to the gym for an hour every day and a hot bath are my two favorite options.

To me, self care as a mom is making sure that I separate myself from the kids and enjoy time alone to recharge and do what I love. Often times, we find ourselves so attached to our children that we forget who are individually. We’ve got to make sure we recharge every now and then so we have the energy to keep up with our little ones. Moms are the glue that keep our small worlds spinning. Without us, there would be chaos.
