It’s Monday and you know what that means. Yes, you’re right. Only seven days until the start of our Mother’s Day Self-Care Contest/Challenge on May 2. We’re excited and hope you are too about the chance to win fabulous prizes and get great self-care tips for creating a life filled with health and happiness.
If you’ve been following us, then hopefully you’ve discovered the importance of making self-care part of your daily/weekly routine. As Ann and I say, you have to keep your emotional pitcher full to maintain a sane and satisfying life. Self-care is the only way we know to survive and thrive as a mom, wife, daughter, friend, and woman. For more thoughts on emotional health, self-care and motherhood, preview our new book Life Will Never Be the Same: The Real Mom’s Postpartum Survival Guide.
If you’re just joining us or not fully convinced of the importance of self-care, here’s some food for thought. According to Wikipedia, self-care is personal health maintenance. Research is clear that the regular practice of self-care contributes to optimal physical and mental health. As the existence of a Wikipedia entry and 156 million Google hits suggest, self-cae is readily endorsed as key in living a well-balanced life. Nevertheless, self-care works its way to last on the list in the busy lives of most women.
Let’s resolve for one week to make self-care a priority. The tips take 15 minutes or less, a small investment for a large return. Join us May 2-6. You’ll be glad you did!
