You Deserve Whatever Makes You Happy

As a mom, you always put the needs of every family member ahead of your own. You work full time, take your children to sports and orchestra practice and still find time to keep your home neat and tidy and prepare healthy meals. While you are a super mom and a fantastic spouse, you also have needs too. Spending time on yourself by doing things that make you happy is just as important and will prevent you from developing feelings of resentment.

You Deserve Whatever Makes You Happy 

Beauty Care

Enduring lots of stress throughout the week can reveal itself on your face and leave you looking pale and old. At the end of the day, you are tired. 

However, it's important to keep up with a daily beauty regimen to maintain healthy skin. Using a gentle cleanser to keep your pores unclogged and a light moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated with allow you to wake up each day with soft supple skin that looks and feels terrific.

Make Changes

Most people have some part of their body that they would like to change. If, for example, you inherited the large family nose that dominates your face, and without it, you would feel much more attractive, then make the change. 

For instance, if you live in the Los Angeles area, dollars to doughnuts, a quick search will turn up a board-certified doctor in Beverly Hills who specializes in these types of beauty procedure.

Feel Energized

As a mother, you often feel tired midday from all the responsibilities that occupy your mind. The good news is that you can restore your energy rather quickly and without the need of consuming extra calories. 

Exercise of any sort, especially when it gets your blood pumping and accelerates the heart, releases endorphins that automatically give you a happy, almost euphoric feeling throughout your body. 

Suddenly the worries of the day exit and you have renewed energy. When this happens at work, leave the office for a few minutes and take a brisk walk. It will benefit you greatly. 

Take up a New Hobby

Let's face it, the kids have their things to do; your spouse has his things of interest, so what about you? It's time to find something that interests you. 

Maybe you want to grow a flower garden, or take up painting or ceramics. Or, even possibly you want to get back into reading. The point is to do something that makes you happy.

Date Night Out

Moms often do everything for their children first and, without notice, leave their spouse to fend for themselves. This is not intentional, of course. 

If your love life is slowly losing its luster, it's time to remember that you were part of a couple first, long before you had children. A way to show that your loved one matters is to have a date night out away from the home once a month. 

It will give each of you a chance to reconnect and have some adult fun.


De-stressing and keeping your body calm is important to sustaining good health. A great way to prevent a breakdown is to take a few minutes each day to meditate. Meditation allows you to connect the body and mind together as one, shutting out the world and all its confusion.

A Restful Night's Sleep

With thoughts racing through your mind as you lay your head on the pillow, you may experience nights where sleep is not achievable. Thankfully, there are ways to bring your mind to a state of calm naturally. Taking a hot bath with lavender or chamomile oils and playing soft music in the background will put you at ease and allow you to quickly fall asleep.

You are a mother and a wife and you take your job seriously. However, you are also a human being with needs. If you learn to take care of you, then you will be able to better tend to your family without resentment.
