This New Year I’m talking all about Self-Care as a mum and how important it is to take that time for us. Every week I’ll be bringing you a new guest blog post with some top tips and hopefully throughout the next few months we’ll have put together an amazing list of different ideas for self-care.
This week is Cassie Mather-Reid.
Tell us a bit about yourself - who you are, what you do and a bit about your family:
I’m a mummy of beautiful identical twin girls. My husband works away a lot so we are often an all girl household. I changed my career at the end of 2017 and I now teach Yoga full time. I’m self employed trying to build my business and balance my home life. Some days better than others.
What do you do for self-care as a mum and how do you make time for self-care?
I try and get my nails and toes done every month Ian and that’s about it. My hair is every few months if I can fit it in or when it’s desperate. Having an active job I should look after my body and health more but the mummy guilt weighs heavy and I end up last on the list. I do however try and have some sort of body maintenance like Kore therapy or more recently iced tried cupping, every couple of months.
What are your three top tips for self-care for mums?
Try and make time for you
Self care can be reading a book with a hot cup of something
It doesn’t have to always be a big gesture
Are there any products/businesses/podcasts ect that you would recommend for self-care?
I love visiting Balanced serenity for body maintenance
Beauty by Chloe for my nails and lashes when I can
Tropic are a staple for me
