50 ways you can practice self care

I’ve not set any resolutions this year, I never do because I never stick to them but if there’s one thing I want to do this year its focus on me a little more. I’m not just a mom, I’m me, Bex. I also need looking after in order to function. Being a mom your main priority are your children but that doesn’t mean you’re not important too, it’s OK to take some time for yourself, you shouldn’t feel guilty.

Even as I’m typing this I’m thinking yeah right, I need to take my own advice but where am I going to find the time, haha don’t be silly Bex! Are you thinking the same too?

I’ve been struggling with tiredness and feeling a little blue for a few months now, all I seem to do is be a mom, a cook, a cleaner and everything else! So that’s why I want to focus on some self care this year, try to find the balance between mom life and myself, start doing the things I used to enjoy doing.
