Hi Mommas! What are some things you guys do for self care when you have kids? I used to love going to the salon and getting massages but those aren't feasible for me now with a family. What do you guys do for self care at home ?

I like having a cup of tea or coffee on the porch while my little is napping. (I take the baby monitor with me)

I like to take a hot bath with epsom salts and essential oils. The occasional glass of wine. I recently have been learning how to do acrylic nails from YouTube videos and it has felt like "self care" to me.

Reading books, taking baths, occasionally splurging on fun little amazon purchases. Things like that.

It's hard to find the time, money, or even sometimes motivation for self care after kids. You can do little things, like take a little extra time in the shower just standing in the hot water and stretching, or telling dad he's on duty while you take a 10 minute walk or hour nap. Have family help you out so you can get some time to yourself.

Doing a facemask, curling up in bed and watching a show, leave the dishes in the sink and go to bed early!

I like to light a candle and do a face mask with a glass of sparkling apple cider. I used to do it with wine before I got pregnant!

Take a bath!  I wait until my kids are in bed so that I know I will have uninterrupted time (usually...) and take a hot bath, light some candles, put on a face mask and read or listen to music.  It really does wonders!

Like most moms have said I love to workout, read, binge on Netflix, and my big indulgence is getting a pedicure when I can! I also love sweets in bed!

I take time to exercise at least 4 days per week and I'm always reading a good book, even if I only get 10 minutes of reading time in at a time!  It's worth it!

I get out of the house and exercise. Nature is so important and fresh air is great for the mind. Yes it's nice to sit and have a bath, but what does that do in the long run? Exercise has been proven over and over to be one of the best mood enhancers there is. Plus, what's wrong with getting in shape while you're at it? 45 mins a day just 3-4 times a week can do wonders for your body and mind.

A bubble bath or if your like me and have no time a hot shower, Some alone time & a long nap.

Do your nails, catch up on shows, read. Anything that will relax you for a few.

The gym is amazing, yoga if you can go if not at home works great too!

I love winding down with a movie at home with the hubby. I love taking a super hot bath too and pulling out the stops on pampering (ex: hair mask, face mask, under eye treatment, exfoliating, lotion, etc) Super rejuvenating, especially if you had a nightmare parenting day.

Pamper yourself with a bubble bath and some facial masks. Nothing like a spa day at home for a heck of a lot less!

I usually settle in with a glass of wine and social media after the kids go to sleep at night. I know these are two pretty bad habits, but they help me unwind.

Going to the gym is my self care! On my particularly stressful days a yoga class and the sauna are life savers

How long does your toddler nap? We are really struggling with nap times with my two year old.

When my toddler goes down for a nap, I find something to do that I enjoy.  It might be watching a TV show I've been into, or finishing a book I've been reading.  Sometimes I even go outside and do some gardening.  It's nice to have that small amount of time to focus on something I'm interested in.

I do bubble baths after my baby goes to bed! And I also cook every night. I love to cook. My husband takes my baby and I put on a podcast and cook away!
