GUEST POST | 4 Self-Care Tips For Tired Moms


Being a mom is one of the most difficult jobs there are out there. It seems like there is never enough time to be able to balance all of the things that we have to do, let alone take care of ourselves. However, self-care is an essential part of being able to take care of everything we need to do. 

If we burn the candle at both ends, we'll only find ourselves burnt out and unable to take care of anyone else. There's a reason why they tell you on an airplane to put your own oxygen mask on before putting it on anyone else! Needless to say,  taking care of yourself is critical as a mom.  Here are some of the most practical ways to practice self-care as a tired mom.

Prioritize Your Health

We get it, some days you may not have the time to be able to go to the hair salon, or even wear anything other than sweatpants. However, your health should never be ignored. Whether you need a dental implant, or you have a persistent cough, always prioritize getting medical attention. 

In addition to taking care of medical issues as they arise, you should also make sure that you're getting enough exercise, rest, and eating properly. Letting yourself go isn't doing anyone any favors, including your kids. They need you around for a long time to come, so make sure that you're keeping yourself in good health.

Spend Time With Friends

As a mom, it's easy to find yourself isolated from your friends. After all, our children depend on us every day, particularly during the younger years so finding time to socialize isn’t always easy.  However, it's important that you surround yourself with a support system full of friends you can rely on. 

Make time for coffee dates, dinners, or even going for a walk with the people you love. This will give you an opportunity to unload, and talk about any frustrations that arise, because as we know, as mothers, frustrations can certainly come up.

Prioritize “Me” Time

At the end of the day it's important that you have time all to yourself. Whether it's for taking a bath or reading a book, “me” time is a critical part of recharging your battery as a mom. Once the kids are in bed, make sure that you carve out a little time for yourself before you go to bed and wake up and do it all over again. Unwinding is a critical part of each day, and without it, you would eventually burn out.


They say that laughter is the best medicine, and it's no secret that parenting can put a lot of pressure on us. It's critical that you find time to laugh to release the tension. Perhaps it's calling a friend and having a chuckle with them, or simply putting on a funny video. 

It also helps to find laughter with your children. Be silly, don't take everything so seriously, and remember, nothing is permanent and this too shall pass!
