8 best self-care tips for every mom

Every parent has their own struggle in their life and in the parenting journey. While the husband is busy in a full-time job, planning finances to paying bills, a mother is also equally busy in her chores. Whether a working mom or a stay at home mom the roles and responsibilities are always there for her and never-ending. No doubt, few women are lucky to get their partners to help them but not all women are privileged for that. Husband’s try their best to lend a helping hand whenever possible but nobody knows when it can be possible for them.

For example, my husband helps me whenever he can. He says he genuinely wants to help me but he will be busy with office work and with the little spare time that he gets he just wants to sit and relax because he is tired, you see;). He helps me once in a while whenever he can or sometimes during weekends and no denial for his efforts from my side. It’s just that he is busy so he cannot help. Whereas I do all the work like dusting, cleaning, taking care of my daughter, cooking and then my 9:30 hours of work. No matter how busy my day is or how hectic my work has been, I cannot run away from my duties. I am sure this is the same case with most of the mom’s. If this is the story of working mom’s, it is no less for stay at home mothers. They have their own commitments, responsibilities and moreover taking care of the child the entire day, running behind them and cleaning all the mess which is no joke or as easy as it seems to be.

We mothers forget to take care of ourselves in the process of taking care of everyone and handling our responsibilities. It’s no wrong in looking after others but we should also give some time for ourselves. After all, self-care is also equally important. Yes, I do understand that our child, husband and family are dependent on us for many things and we all are doing a great job in handling things but that doesn’t mean we forget about ourselves and keep serving others. Sometimes, it is absolutely okay if we keep ourselves as a priority. Even our lives are important and without self-care, it might lead to depression, stress, anger, frustration and so on.

Few self-care tips

1. Take time for your friends:
