Don't Ever Forget: Moms are People, too
A modern woman is normally just as busy as the modern man, and when the modern woman becomes the modern mother she retains all of her previous engagements and adds some more, which in turn makes her shift more from busy to super busy.
This is why the modern mother sometimes feels it is necessary to consciously neglect her own well-being as her sense of personal aesthetics. This isn't fair and it shouldn't have to be that way.
A mother has all the same rights to feeling appealing just as any other family member has. So accordingly, this article aims to provide health and beauty tips for the busiest family member.
Eating a Healthy Diet
Skipping meals and eating on the go is a common habit of a lot of busy mothers. However, neither of the two is a good idea. That's why a mother may opt to bash two activities together, namely: spending quality time with the kids and eating meals with them.
Another good idea for a busy mother would be preparing an extra meal while packing lunch for the kids, and then when they're off to having it herself.
Allowing the daily fatigue to get in the way of eating family dinners is another no-no. If it is absolutely necessary a refreshing shower may be a just reason for the dinner being late.
Engaging in Indulgences
A mother, like any other family member, deserves her indulgences. It doesn't have to go big, it may be as simple as a dip in the hot bubble bath, applying face pack, spending some extra time doing the nails, enjoying a foot rub or an oil massage for mum's hair, a fancy haircut, you name it.
Wrapping up the Day in Style
This involves practicing health and beauty rituals before hitting the sack – no matter how exhausted mum could be, this is an important treat at the end of her day. It could be a long, warm bath, combing her hair until it shines, using night cream facial applications, a massage of her hands and legs using a vitamin lotion, et cetera.
Not Skipping Regular Doctor Visits
Because mothers are not machines, they need their regular medical attention as well. This involves not ignoring minor headaches and pains just because “there isn't enough time provided at the moment.”
Even the busiest of schedules aren't fully packed. Any available gap may be used by mum to socialize with her girlfriends. This could be achieved by making plans ahead, instead of allowing the gap to be a “mere accident”, or a flaw in daily agenda, if you please. These may involve shopping sprees, spa visits, or merely lunching out with the ladies.
