The 25 Ultimate Self-Care Tips for Busy Moms

The 25 Ultimate Self-Care Tips for Busy Moms

One of the most common problems busy moms have is having time for self-care. We find ourselves juggling the weight of playing mom and wife, then add in work, family, and friends if we can, and all of a sudden we have no time for ourselves. It isn't uncommon for moms to run like this for a long time (let's talk years). It isn't a good thing though! You need self-care in your life.

Fitting self-care into life as a busy mom can be hard!  It is so important that you do.  Find out the benefits of self-care along with 25 self-care tips and ideas that will fit into your daily life. #selfcare #motherhood #busymom

Why is self-care important?

When we implement self-care it helps us mentally and physically. You will have lower stress, notice better sleep, and your emotions are more in-check. It helps to level the playing field of you vs the world. Most importantly, self-care encourages happiness. As the saying goes, happy wife, happy life.

I don't have time for self-care.

You will always have time for what is important. If you do not have time for self-care then you are not holding yourself in a position of importance. There should be no guilt in treating yourself. There are ways to implement self-care that take less than 10 minutes. You can indulge in self-care without spending money. You can even implement self-care with your kids hanging on you. Here are some easy methods of self-care you can try!

Finish your coffee (or tea) every morning.

This might sound impossible, for many reasons. You might not have time to make it in the morning, it gets cold, or you lose it. Luckily, these are mere excuses. Set your coffee pot to auto brew in the morning. Make sure you pour your drink in a thermal mug that'll keep it hot all day. Find a designated location for your drink or pour yourself another cup.  When you give yourself the ability to complete this important routine you will find stability and even a sense of calm.

Create a routine.

Routines can be hard because with life, it doesn't always go as planned. That is okay!  All you need to do is have a game plan for your daily life and try to follow it. Having changes won't throw the day off. By having a schedule, you'll know what to expect and even be able to map out excitement for the special parts of life (like meeting a friend, having a date night, taking a class, or even a night with an uninterrupted bath).  When you implement the schedule, your family will catch on surprisingly quick!

Nourish yourself.

Make sure you are eating healthy and enough and drinking plenty of water. Having indulgent snacks is good too but it is proven that our energy is boosted when we put nutrient rich foods in our bodies and stay hydrated. This can seem like a hard thing to do, so start small. Find a water bottle you love and carry it and fill it as needed. Stock some yummy snacks, such as granola bars, fruit, veggies, nuts, even cheese!

Wear comfortable and functional clothes.

There is something about comfortable clothes that can really brighten your day.  Whether you are a Stay At Home Mom or Working Mom, this applies. You will want to find comfortable clothes that fit your lifestyle too (working, athletic, breastfeeding, etc).  On your weekends, slip into your coziest clothes and enjoy!

Give yourself 5-10 minutes a day of quiet.

Wake up early, go to bed a little later, find a quiet nook during your lunch break or during nap-time. You can just sit in silence, read a little, soak in the tub, or whatever makes your heart sing. It is important to find the quiet though. It let's our mind rest and allows for us to decompress.


Self-care can be hard to implement sometimes but it is possible. Try different methods to see what fits your lifestyle.  Taking care of you is not selfish, it just helps to make sure you can keep up with your busy life! It is about truly taking care of yourself. We would love to hear what your favorite method of self-care is!
