The Busy Moms Guide to Quick Pampering

 

 

 

 

Whenever I have a couple hours to myself I always try to get a full pampering session in. Realistically, I may only have an hour at the most, and this is usually before my kids wake up. The weekends I tend to have a bit longer since my husband is off of work. However, with the way my stress levels are set up, I always jump at the chance for a little extra pampering. Here a few ways tips to get in a daily quick pampering session.

1.) I usually start with a hot bath/shower to relax. In full honesty, the early morning (or super late at night) are the only times I have to actually soak in a tub. Before becoming a parent, I never thought that would be a luxury! Go figure!

2.) No pampering session would be complete without a face mask. This one is my new favorite. If you have large pores this face mask is another great option. Love getting the pores clean!

3). Moisturize like your life depends on it. Seriously, Whenever I take the time to really wash, mask, tone and moisturize my face, it seems as if my day starts off better. Even if I am unable to get in a quick pampering session, I instantly feel better.

Just so you don’t think quick pampering is all about dolling up and looking pretty….

4). Meditation can have an impact on many areas of your life including helping to decrease stress, better manage your emotions, let go of mental distractions, and be more present and attentive with your kids.The bonus? Teaching your kids a skill like meditation early in their lives will have major benefits for them later in life too. Although finding time for daily practice may seem overwhelming, it’s so worth the time.

5). Pick up your favorite (or new) book and take a few moments and read. This helps to reduce brain fog and stress. Plus if you are really into the book, it can help you get away just for a little bit.

6).  Listen to your favorite podcast. A podcast is probably the best invention since sliced bread. Just a few weeks ago The Read had Lavar Burton on for 3 hours. It was seriously the greatest thing ever. Podcasts are a great way to stay connected, learn something new, or just be entertained. Listen during the mundane tasks of your day.
