Well the kids will be back to school here in no time and that means that some of us are going to be a lot busier and some of us are going to have a little more time on our hands. All of us are happy the kids will be back to school to let off some steam and all of us moms are in need of some time to do the same. Which is why I wanted to give you 5 ways for mom to relax now that the kids are back-to-school.
Mama’s Bath time
Now that the kids aren’t home you have a few hours to yourself and that means its the perfect time to have a relaxing bath. Of course some of you might be rushing around having just got the kids from daycare and only just finished getting them inside and have to make dinner. Once that is all done you need time alone so put those kids to bed and lock that bathroom door. This is your time and you need to make things special with candles, throw in a bath bomb and put on a super luxurious face mask. There is nothing much better than a nice hot soak and some skin pampering just before bed.
You have spent a small fortune on getting the kids ready for back-to-school. You have dragged them through stores, made them try on clothes, braved temper tantrums and lost your sanity a couple times over. You deserve to feel good about yourself, you deserve a cute new outfit to ring in the early fall weather. Maybe, now that the kids are in school, hubby and you are planning a couple romantic lunches together? If so you need a new outfit girl!
New Skin Routine
Sometimes all you need to put a little extra pep in your step is a change in your regular routine. This is the time to start thinking about Summer skin recovery. That means you might be looking into a new skin care routine, maybe you need to change up your toner for Fall and getting ready for more breakouts. Perhaps it is that time in your life where you want to think about anti-aging creams. Of course not necessary but I think they definitely help you age a little more gracefully and I love this Caudalie: Resversatrol Lift Face Lifting Soft Cream. It is an all natural ingredient product, which means my sensitive skin loves it and is never irritated. As someone with sensitive skin Caudalie products are just what I need as my skin can be very temperamental.
Feed Your Hobby
I love hobbies and I love how getting into them can create a calming feeling in your day. There is something incredible about creating, whether it is a garden or piece of art, it does give you an eternal sense of calm. It was Mr. Rogers who said:
“Often the creative urge, once we express it, brings real relief in whatever form it takes.” – Mr. Rogers.
You don’t have to be amazing at what you are creating, it only has to bring you a sense of peace and joy in your day. Especially after a stressful week filled with school, sports and lots of crazy driving.
Spend Time With Friends Who Get It
Once the kids are back-to-school the number one thing you might need is some time with your favorite mom friends. Getting together for some tea or drinks to gush about how happy you are to have the kids back at school is a great way to have some fun. Relaxing isn’t all about just doing nothing it is about connecting with others so you know you are not alone in this big struggle called parenting. Knowing you are not alone can be one of the most relaxing things on earth.
Remember ladies back-to-school is here and we need to start thinking about ourselves again so we can survive Fall and Winter!
