5 Self-Care Tips for Stay-at-Home Mums

The transition from career woman to stay-at-home mum can be physically and emotionally draining. Most new mothers (and some old ones!) feel suffocated from being constantly with a child, and this brings about feelings of guilt.

Here are five self-care tips for stay-at-home mums to keep things in perspective.

 

1. Remember, Mom is also a person

Before you were a mother, you were a person. So don’t you forget it! You don’t always have to put the children first or you will end up resenting them. Take time to pamper yourself, if only for a couple of hours a day. Bring your child to daycare on occasion, or arrange for a family member to take over so you can do a little shopping, get a spa treatment, or simply a long, hot bath. Basically, just live your life.

 

2. Don’t forget your partner

Try not to let the stresses of the day leak into your relationship with your partner. Remember that they also have needs. You can’t just abandon intimacy and companionship. Make an effort to spend time touching base with your partner, and that doesn’t include handing over the baby and saying “Here!” Go on dates, and try to have fun.

 

 

3. Join a group

Get together with some friends with whom you share a common interest. It can be a mothers’ club, an art class, or a night out with your friends. The important thing is to hone your social skills and be around people who are already toilet trained. You’ll feel refreshed and ready to face the dire straits of diaper world once more.

 

4. Keep yourself fit

Being a mom is hard work, so you need to keep fit. Eat right and exercise regularly to maintain energy and keep fatigue at bay. Grab as much sleep as you can, when you can, even if you have to forego an errant batch of laundry. Not only will you feel healthier, you’ll look great too.

That’s always a morale booster.

 

 

5. Work out a routine

To make the other four tips work, you need to establish a routine to manage your time. Much of it will depend on your child’s idiosyncrasies—i.e. sleeping habits—but gradually you’ll find a way to make compromises between your baby’s schedule and your basic needs, which will keep your sanity intact.

Anymore suggestions? I’m all ears. Let me hear them in the comments.
