Over the last year or so being a parent has been challenging. Mom's have become more then just a taxi, they have become the teacher, the tech support, the lunch lady, and the gym teacher, just to name a few. Mom's are working overtime and there isn't an end in sight.
With ever Zoom classroom or virtual karate class that mom's have setup over the past year has been the sacrifice of the self care necessities that she has let go to make sure her kids are taken care of in this difficult time. It is more important then ever that mom gets those self care necessities back.
As adults start to get vaccines things will start to get better and there will be significant attention paid to what was lost. Let's not forget what was lost for mom and make sure she is well taken care of during the next few months and years. To do that, look no further then a good self care routine to help her improve things in 2021 and relax her mind, body, and soul for the rest of the year.
Self care looks different for everyone. For some, it is a good book and a quiet spot and for others it is a day at the spa. There are those that need time outdoors to recharge and for others it's about doing some sort of artistic endeavor. Whichever it is for your mom you must make it a priority for her to get what she needs this year. This Mother's Day make time to help your mom get back into a self care routine that will not only encourage her to focus on herself, but also on getting back what she lost over the last year.
Sure a Mother's Day gift is nice and we have plenty of them to choose from here, but make sure it is accompanied with the time and effort it takes to help mom achieve her self care goals in 2021. If she can get back to focusing on herself, she'll be able to continue her focus on your needs in the coming months and years while still feeling good about what is important to her.
