Three Tips for Maintaining Self-Care as a Mommy

Motherhood is filled with joys and triumphs. You're faced with new moments, new decisions and new experiences every day. However, one of the most common issues mothers run into is the struggle to take care of themselves. When you're dealing with a new baby, it's easy to become consumed with them. This can happen to the detriment of yourself. Then, you're looking in the mirror, unable to recognize yourself. If this is currently your dilemma, consider these three tips for developing self-care as a mommy. 

1. Wear a new uniform. 

Find a uniform that you can wear every day. The key is to make sure that it's comfortable yet chic. It can be dark leggings and a cute button-up blouse. You can choose a dark denim pair of jeans with a cute graphic t-shirt. Along with the top and bottom, find a fun accessory to throw on. You can choose a cute pair of earrings, a nice statement necklace or a few bangles. Then, find a red lipstick color that works for you. Once you put that look together on a daily basis, you'll develop a tradition of being polished and presentable at all times. 

2. Create new habits. 

If your baby takes a nap around 3 pm, consider this a chance for you to take a break in order to do something you love. You might choose to watch a show on Netflix or go jogging on the treadmill. Instead of always prepping the baby's next moves, take a portion of time to dedicate to yourself. 

3. Set aside time to splurge. 

Take time to splurge on yourself once a month. Even if money is short, you can carve out a few extra bucks to do something nice for yourself. In order to help you stay focused, use a spare change bank to collect your extra coins. Do your best to collect spare change and extra money you find. As you put money into the bank on a daily basis, this will help you get excited about the idea of doing something for yourself. Go to the spa. Get a manicure. Buy a gorgeous dress or a pair of pumps. Make sure it's something for you to enjoy.
