Summer Self-care for Moms: 3 Ways to Show Yourself Some Extra Love This Summer

Moms, it’s time! School is out and summer is here. Sounds like a perfect time for some summer self-care and regeneration. 

Here are my top three tips on how moms can show themselves a little extra love now and throughout the summer:

  1. Celebrate the year’s successes. Another school year being over is a major accomplishment, not just for your kids, but for you. You did it! To help celebrate school being out, find something the whole family will enjoy. Order your favorite take-out and throw on a movie for a quiet night in. Or, maybe plan a fun outing or family vacation. Looking to celebrate a personal accomplishment? Plan a fun night out with your friends and loved ones. What better way to celebrate your successes than with those you love?
  2. Relax and take some alone time. Don’t be afraid to take time away from your children! The time spent apart, in your own moment, is equally as important as the time spent together. You can take this time to relax and unwind, to plan fun activities and outings with the family for another day, or simply to just get some other work done without distractions. Doing this can help you feel refreshed and energized for what's ahead. Plus, it’s nice to be able to hear your own thoughts every now and then!
  3. Plan a special summer day. There are plenty of fun, summer activities that the whole family can get in on! Try hikingswimming, a short road trip, a day at the beach or lake, museums, a fun craft or cooking class, etc. The options are endless! Get your kids involved in the planning process of this fun day. This quality time is something the whole family will never forget and will always cherish.
