Why You Need to Create a Self-Care Nook
In the past year I have been carving out more time for myself because when I’m feeling rested and recharged, I am simply a better mom. A few years ago, my best friend introduced me to the idea of a making a self-care desk, a little space in her house that was only hers and filled with things that spoke to her and brought her joy. She used this space to disconnect and recharge when needed.
When she shared this with me years ago I loved the idea but I didn’t think it was something that I would use. Back then, I didn’t understand how taking care of myself would make me a better mom. But eventually I learned that in order for me to be a peaceful, patient and loving parent I had to feel this way inside first.
As moms we tend to put ourselves last, especially when we have young kids. Sometimes even the thought of making time for ourselves can sound stressful because time is one of the things we all could use more of. But self-care doesn’t need to be hard, elaborate nor take a lot of time. And the easiest way to practice self-care and to recharge yourself is to carve out a little space in your home for you.
Eventually, I carved out a spot in my home for my own self-care nook and I love it! Everyone’s self-care nook will have different things but the purpose is to fill it with things that bring you joy. Books, candles, incense, lotion, crystals, favorite quotes – whatever resonates with you and allows you to easily reconnect with yourself should be part of this space.
On this episode I go into more detail on why a self-care space is important and how to set it up. Having a space in your home that is dedicated to self-care is a physical reminder of how important it is to take time for you, mama. To refresh and recharge yourself so that you can tackle the rest of your life with vigor.
I urge you to listen to this episode, for you, because everyone mom should have this.
