Moms are superheroes, living in plain sight, with an invisible cape. Like every superhero, mothers too, have immense responsibilities on their shoulders. Being a mom is an everyday challenge, but a challenge that every mother loves to tackle.
It does not end at giving birth. Rather, the journey begins hereafter. The endless responsibilities take a toll on women’s health and wellness. So, this Mother’s Day, set time aside for yourself for a change. And no, don’t feel selfish when it comes to self-care.
Early Morning Coffee & A Good Book
Remember the time when you could read your favourite book any time of the day? Priorities tend to change when you become a mother. So this Mother’s Day, switch off the motherly duties (only for a little while) and pamper yourself with a peaceful cup of morning tea or coffee. Lounge in your favourite chair and plunge into the world of fantasy with the book of your choice.
Rejuvenate with a Relaxing Bath
As a mum, you must be finding it difficult to spare some time for yourself. Ask your partner to help with the baby, while you take a relaxing hot bath. When talking about self-care tips for moms, the idea of a peaceful bath might seem bonkers to some. But a simple warm shower or a bath is enough to help calm down the nerves. Gather your thoughts and live a little for yourself.
Bring Romance to the Table
Sex is a proven stress-buster and essential for women’s wellness. The release of oxytocin (the happy hormone) and the increased dopamine levels is exactly what you need to take your mind off on this special day. The last thing you need to worry about is an unplanned pregnancy. Consider the use of contraceptives such as condoms and contraceptive tablets while you enjoy a night of passion without any barriers.
Vibe To Your Fav Music
Music helps lower stress levels. Indulge in some soulful music, dance your heart out, and forget about the surroundings for a while. Don’t think you can manage the time? Why not combine music and shower. Amp up the volume while you take a long, nice shower.
Some Tips for Moms
While celebrating a day dedicated solely to mothers is a great idea, there are a few women’s health tips that you can follow every day to maintain your health.
- Talk to friends. Relive the old, carefree days of your childhood.
- Maintain a healthy diet. Healthy body = Healthy mind.
- If you are sexually active, take control of your pregnancy by opting for women-friendly contraception methods such as the Unwanted 21 Days, regular oral contraceptive tablet.
- Adopt a self-care routine that allows you to take a break for yourself. Just 10 minutes in a day can do the trick.
- Go for a walk. Establish an effective exercise routine to keep fit.
With Mother’s Day around the corner, pamper yourself and take some time for the peace of your mind. Whether it is spending the day alone with a book, or romance with your partner, your options are limitless. Stay safe and have a relaxing day.
