A Self Care Routine + Mom Life

After becoming a new Mom, life was a mix of spit-up stained fitness clothes (that never saw a workout), little sleep, and forgetting to eat, let alone consuming a recommended water intake daily. You gain so much.. joy, memories, and love by putting a sweet little one first. As he got older, I struggled figuring out how to balance being a mom and adding in self care, as well, which I’m sure many of you do. As much as I loved fitness, I struggled with how to fit it in and make it a priority. Minimal sleep was the new norm, and me time was non-existent. Can you relate?

I needed a way to use my time efficiently by working out at home, so at the end of November, I downloaded an app and made a goal to do a scheduled workout 5-6 days a week. The workouts range from 22-40 minutes, and incorporate everything from free weights, to yoga, martial arts, and tabata. I love changing it up! I started doing it while Hudson ate breakfast every morning, and fell in love.

Lately, I made it a goal to wake up earlier while he is still asleep and doing my workout and if I’m lucky, adding in my shower before he gets up, as well! I love it because by the time he is ready to get up I have the day to focus on him, and not trying to multitask fitness, showering, etc.

I’ve made it a routine, I wake up, throw on my fitness clothes, make a Wellness Drink, start my diffuser with some mood-boosting essential oils and press play.

I look forward to it every morning! What a vast difference it makes to have that little piece of the day dedicated to something that makes me feel so much better, destress and start the day off positively!

As a mom, what are ways you incorporate self care? I’d love for you to share them below!
