My entire life self care has been of upmost importance, then I had a baby and it became even more of a priority. Not because I need to look a certain way but because I personally want to feel a certain way. To me, having a work out to clear my head or having regular manicures and a nighttime beauty routine makes me feel like a person that can conquer anything. I know it sounds silly but for me things like a great face oil or a pedicure make me feel good and the better I feel, the better I can be as a person and I have no shame admitting that.
I think one of the most important things is to take care of ‘you’ because I firmly believe that if you do not take care of yourself, you cannot take care of others. Like most of you, I too want to be the best wife, mom and friend. For me to be able to be successful in all of these areas, I have to feel my best! Since becoming a mom my ‘free time’ is a bit more limited, so I always try and keep beauty products that make me feel great in my own bathroom. There is something so nice after an extremely long day (let’s be honest, there are lots of those) and taking a bath with bath oils or washing your hair with this shampoo (I promise there is nothing better). Regardless of what products you are using, I just encourage you to use something that YOU like and that makes YOU happy.
I know I have veered away from my normal posts but if you take one thing away from this post today it is that it is okay to take care of yourself. In fact, it is SO important so never feel guilty about taking a moment for yourself. I promise your babies, husbands, partners, friends and family will thank you.
