To the Moms with a 9 to 5 and a 5 to 9

You truly never understand what it is like to be a hardworking mother until you actually become one. It is a life-changing experience you will always be grateful for. It is the day you felt love like no other and the day you told yourself that you would give the best for your baby. But as a mom, your whole purpose is to give the best to your child before yourself, as any mother should. Not only are you a mother, but moms also have career jobs sometimes which add to their plate.

You always hear people say, "Learn to take care of yourself before you can take care of others." As kids get older, sometimes it's hard to forget about your needs and your health. Waking your kids up, making sure they have the right nutrition, taking care of their bodies, going to your can never catch a break! Which is why it is so important for all the moms out there to take a breath, and start doing what is best for your health and body.

It also doesn't need to be time-consuming to take a little time for yourself. Just enough time for you to reset your mind and have a break from your 9 to 5/5 to 9 job. Here are little tips to keep your mind and body healthy:

  • Yoga: Doing a short yoga session for yourself can help your body to be at ease with all the stress. Yoga practice stretching and breathing exercises to calm your nerves and muscles.

  • Watch 1 episode of your favorite show: Sometimes, watching your favorite show can bring a lot of joy because it can be something you can look forward to in your day.

  • Body care: Taking care of your body and skin is important because taking care of your beauty and clean skin makes everyone feel refreshed.

Mothers always try to be the best for their child, but even though you are trying to do your best, it doesn't mean you can't take a break. Always take care of your well-being first. Your kids appreciate the love and care you give for them, and one day they will understand too.
