Things to try to improve your wellbeing

If you’re a follower of mine on Instagram then you may have seen that I’ve been incorporating a good skincare routine back into my life lately in a bid to banish those blemishes. It got me thinking about other ways to take care of myself and not necessarily those of a pampering nature.

When I was younger and pre baby, I made a lot of time for myself to go to the gym and have regular facials or face masks and even painted my nails. Now I’m lucky if I have time to even contemplate painting my nails, my face mask is done in bed before I go to sleep, and exercise consists of running around after an almost 1-year-old and climbing up and down a children’s climbing frame in the name of squeezing my butt down a slide with said child.

When you become a mum you suddenly put this tiny person 1st above everything and anything and that includes washing your hair. Dry shampoo is BAE and you don’t even flinch when telling someone you’ve gone 5 days without washing your hair. You really do neglect yourself in those first 12 months unless you’re completely on the ball and motherhood is just second nature (those lucky few!). I suddenly have a new-found understanding of what all those women before me have been through and find myself sitting alongside them.

Well now it’s time to embrace the new me and that includes making more time for myself even if that means waiting for my child to fall asleep.

It took me a few days to come up with some core goals that were realistic and not way above achievable, but were also not completely time-consuming now that my priority is my child. No longer can I be selfish, I have to put my beautiful little girl first and my goals come second especially when it comes to blogging which is a hobby.
