The sun has gone down on Summer, and with school starting back up soon, you are busy. Your little ones are growing fast, and with that comes a To Do list that goes on for miles. Their needs are great, and you are more than happy to provide- but what do you need?
Being a Mom is a full-time, 24-hr kind of job. There are no sick days and you can’t take leave when the pressures of parenthood get to be overwhelming. But it’s important as parents to fulfill your own needs as well as your child’s. It’s like they say on the airplane- put on your own oxygen mask before you help others around you. Ok, maybe that’s not the best example, but let’s talk about a few things you can do for yourself when Mama needs some peace.
Written By Dani Haberly
You’ve fed, bathed and tucked in the kids. They are dreaming, and you could be too but you know once you are asleep, you’ll soon wake up to the chaos all over again. You’re tired, but take an hour before you hit the pillow to do something for yourself.
Start by running a hot bubble bath. You’re no stranger to a bath tub full of rubber ducks and other toys, but remove all that and add a candle or two. Dim the lights, turn on the meditation music and enjoy.
As the last of the bubbles circle the drain, blow out the candles and put on your new Kyte Living Adult Loungewear. You already know how soft this set of all-natural, bamboo jammies are because you’ve dressed your children in Kyte BABY for years. The little ones don’t exactly know why they love putting on their PJs before bed, but you do- they’re made from the softest, most breathable bamboo material you’ve ever felt. That’s why you just had to get some for yourself.
After you’ve slipped into your Kennedy top and Kelly pants, head to the kitchen and make yourself a hot cup of tea. As the bag infuses the water, breathe and take in the aroma. Let your shoulders relax and find yourself a quiet place to curl up.
Once you’re settled, open the cover of your favorite book. As you read, let your mind escape the stress of real life. Lose yourself in the story for a chapter or two. When your eyelids are heavy and the mug is empty, off to bed you go. There’s no need to change, your loungewear will keep you comfortable throughout the night.
It’s the little things that mean the most- even if it’s just a few minutes a day to meditate, relax and recharge. Take the time for self-love, because life comes at you fast and the stuff will just keep piling up. You are not just a Mom, find yourself in these moments.
