Ways Moms Can Get Some Extra Love This Summer
Mamas… it’s the time! School is almost out and summer is here. Sounds like a perfect time for some self-care and regeneration! Grow highlights the importance of moms practicing self-care and showing themselves a little extra love as school lets out and summer begins.
Here are our top tips on how mamas can show themselves a little extra love now, and throughout the summer:
Celebrate the year’s successes
Another school year being over is a major accomplishment, not just for your kids, but for you. You did it! You got your little ones through another year, and a very difficult one given all of the challenges Covid gave us. To help celebrate school being out, find something the whole family will enjoy! Order your favorite take-out and throw on a movie for a quiet night in.
Plan a fun outing or vacation with the family! Looking to celebrate a personal accomplishment? Plan a fun night out with your friends and loved ones. What better way to celebrate your successes than with those you love?
Relax and take some alone time
Don’t be afraid to take time away from your children! The time spent apart, in your own moment, is equally as important as the time spent together. You can take this time to relax and unwind, to plan fun activities and outings with the family for another day, or simply to just get some other work done without distractions.
Doing this can help you feel refreshed and energized for what's ahead. Plus, it’s nice to be able to hear your own thoughts every now and then!
Gift yourself something nice
Customized Jewelry or a "Tough as a Mother" Glass is the perfect gift to give yourself because you just flat-out deserve it! What better way to shower yourself with love and appreciation than with a customized initial or name necklace. Remind yourself of the great achievement that this past school year has been!
Plan a special summer day
There are plenty of fun, summer activities that the whole family can get in on! Try hiking, swimming, a short road trip, a day at the beach for some fishing or lake, museums, a fun craft or cooking class… the options are endless!
Get your kids involved in the planning process of this fun day. This quality time is something the whole family will never forget and will always cherish.
