The holiday season has been talked about somewhere in the last week or so. They talked about how busy they were, how many gifts they had to buy, and how much work they had to do.
As moms, finding time to care for ourselves can be challenging. We’re always putting everyone else’s needs first. We all know that being good to others requires that you take care of yourself, especially after the holidays.
Here are a few ways to create self-care after the busy holidays:
Know And Respect Your Limits
There are often a lot of obligations, errands, and events during the holidays. Although these to-do lists can sometimes be fun or exhilarating, they can also be exhausting and emotionally draining. It’s important for you to know when to say “enough” or “no” after the busy holidays.
Block out some days on the calendar as “rest days.”
Whenever you receive an invitation or your kids want to participate in a last-minute holiday activity, you can say "not today!". ” There will be plenty of days where they have lots of fun. Taking a day off to take care of yourself during the holidays won't hurt.
