There are hundreds of self-care ideas for moms to indulge as they should. However, this list focuses on realistic practices that have helped me in my routine self-care. Habituating self-care acts is essential, so you don’t neglect your needs or basic functionalities. These needs include physical, mental, and spiritual necessities for maintaining a happy, balanced life. Remember that a busy mom who never takes time for herself will eventually burn out. Don’t allow a busy life to deny you from listening to your favorite music or taking 20 minutes to get your flu shot so that you don’t run yourself sick. Schedule time to get your nails done while running around completing your to-do list—practice self-care in your morning routine with the skincare cream you splurge a little extra to use.
