Busy Mom Guide: 5 Pampering Ideas For The Long Weekend

Busy Mom Guide: 5 Pampering Ideas For The Long Weekend

If you're a mom, you know life can be busy. Between taking care of your children, household chores, work, and life (!!!) it can seem neverending! That's why it's so important to take a break and recharge your batteries. After all the effort you put into your work and family, you deserve it! Here are five brilliant pampering ideas for the long weekend.

Just switch your mind off and meditate

Meditation is often shown as a deeply spiritual experience where one sits in an orange robe and contemplates, silently staring into the distance. While this is one possible scenario, the truth is meditation can be done anywhere—as long as you have access to a space that's free of noise and chatter. Check out one of the many guided meditation apps—it will help you clear your mind and refresh your brain. Give meditation a try before going to bed, right in the morning, or around noon. 

Plan a Spa Day

A day at the spa is the ultimate in relaxation! Let yourself be pampered by experienced beauticians and massage therapists. Whether you opt for a full-body or only a face or foot massage, you'll feel relaxed and energized after your treatment. If you're feeling overwhelmed with life, there's nothing a little self-care can't improve.

Give yourself some home pampering as well

If a spa day isn't in your budget or time frame, bring the pampering home! Make a deal with your partner to take kids to the movies and dinner while you enjoy your time off. The best way to start is to give yourself a long bubbly bath with aromatic candles and some soothing music, then move to a full gentle body scrub. Apply your favorite moisturizer and/or body oil—having smooth and soft skin will make you feel gorgeous.

Make your own little self-care routines along the way

Sometimes, life gets too hectic so going to a spa or doing a full pampering session can’t happen. But, there are still ways to treat yourself and look great afterward. Choose everyday beauty products that make you feel great. Washing your hair with the best shampoo for oily hair with eucalyptus will remove the buildup from your scalp, and blow-drying it will ensure your hair is perfectly styled and silky soft. Choose skincare products and a routine that helps create a glowy complexion. Sometimes, being a busy mom won’t let you have everything, but a few minutes of luxury will help you feel better in your own skin.

Do yoga or exercise

Moving your body is a great to get into shape and rid yourself of stress. Yoga is one form of exercise that can help build strength, and reduce anxiety. If you're lacking in motivation for solo exercise, invite your friends over or join a yoga studio. If yoga isn't your thing, think about joining a local gym or running group. You'll feel fit and healthy in no time!

You may think self-care is out of reach, especially as a busy mom. But this couldn't be further from the truth! Small changes in routine can help you feel beautiful and refreshed. Pampering is something you deserve—so take advantage of the long weekend an treat yourself!
