Your Week at a Glance :: Week of July 22
This week we are focusing on self-care!
Self-care. Everyone is talking about it, but mama, why does it seem like it’s so hard to do?!
Why does it seem that we want to be everything for everyone…except ourselves??
OMB owner Kristi here. I’m totally guilty of this. BUT! I made some baby steps just this last week toward self-care.
This last week I treated myself to a manicure. (I know, 2nd ever in 40+ years!)
I had my very first blow out hairstyle
And that cute dress I was wearing…yup. I hardly ever go shopping for myself!
So mama, you can do it too! We have some ideas for self-care – some that include splurging, and some that are free, in case the budget is tight!
Self-Care: Secure your own mask first
I know I am not alone in this. We all have a tendency to let self-care go once we start a family. There is this palpable pressure to be everything for everyone. This is virtually impossible when we do not allow ourselves time to reset and recharge.
So mamas, let’s address self-care, and call out three simple rules.
Balancing College and Mom Life and the Beautiful Mess In-between
We are SO excited to announce a new contributor to the OMB team, Chelsea! In her first post, she gives us a peek into her life and how she is balancing college, mom life and the beautiful mess in-between. Besides writing, Chelsea’s other hobbies include DIY, decorating, being outdoors when it’s not too hot (because Florida!), party planning, singing and spending time with friends. Chelsea shares, “If you came to my house I’d probably not be looking cute, make you a cup of coffee and find enjoyment in just chatting while my toddler runs around scattering toys all over the kitchen!”
