Summer is finally here! I’ve noticed is that I have to be SUPER intentional about doing things this summer or else it will be over in a blink. I’ve got some great ideas lined up thanks to the Summer Bucket List printable I shared with you all but I need to make sure I take some time to really self care as well.
Self care is such a wide term, I truly believe that self care belongs to the owner, it can look completely different for me than it does for you. For example, I know that for me, going to the gym is a level one form of self care. Without it, I start to feel sluggish, irritated and overall grumpy.
My body simply needs endorphins to stay happy. This is NOT the case for everyone–some people need a weekly massage, or a certain treat, or simply taking the time to read a book. It can vary from person to person but one thing is absolutely true–we ALL need self care as moms and working women.
It can be difficult to find the time to take for yourself. My kids social lives are way more active than my own! It can be so tough when you are chauffeuring them everywhere during the summer season. Then there are the summer vacations that need time to pack, prepare, execute and UNPACK from.
Don’t forget trying to keep these kids halfway smart while not in school by reading and getting ready for the upcoming grade. Things can get really busy for moms during the summer and it can be so hard to find little pockets of time for yourself!
