7 Day Mommy Care Challenge
I am really excited about this post, it’s something i’ve been working so hard on. This is the beginning of the Mommy Care Challenge.
7 days to take more care of yourself. It’s a short commitment of at least 5 minutes a day, but in this time it is all about you. Each day has a different task associated with it. In those 5 minutes, where the focus on doing something for yourself, you should find yourself beginning to feel more like yourself again.
If there is something on the list that just isn’t your cup of tea, go ahead a subsitute it if necessary. Step out of your comfort zone though and do something explicitly for you!
I know 5 minutes a day for 7 days doesn’t sound like much of a challenge, or maybe it does. We all have crazy schedules. We all have a million things going on, that need our attention and that require more than we might be able to give.
Momma, you’re worth it though,
you’re worth the slight inconvenience because you can’t take care of others if you don’t make yourself a priority first. Your needs matter! Your mental wellness is what keeps you going, taking care of all those things that need your attention. How can you manage all those tasks when you’re exhausted?
As I was looking into making this challenge I surveyed my mom friends anonymously through survey monkey (if you’d like to add your response i’d love to see your responses as well- just click here to take the survey).
This survey showed me a few things. Firstly, we are NOT alone. If motherhood overwhelms you more days than it doesn’t… welcome to the club. If you spend less than 2 days a week doing something for yourself…. welcome to the club.
The thing is, it’s a big club because we all do it. We all feel the mom guilt when we don’t manage to keep up with the perfect mother image in our head. There’s plenty of guilt to go around, and no reason to feel bad about it.
There is no reason to feel guilty for needing a little time to yourself.
I feel like I keep saying “you cant pour from an empty bucket” over and over, but that phrase holds so much truth. You matter, and you can’t be the best possible version of yourself if you continually put your own needs on the back burner.
So let me introduce you to my new,
