A Love Affair With yourself

The importance of self-care

So much has changed in my life since I moved to Canada in the spring of 2013. Gaining an instant family is fun, challenging and a great learning experience. There is not one day that goes by where I regret my decision.

However, since becoming a stepmom I have learned one important lesson, and that’s the lesson of self-care.

I can’t emphasize the importance of self-care enough. As a woman, mom or stepmom we can easily get dragged into everyday life and everyone’s needs over our own. Stepping back and recharging our batteries is important for any woman, mom or stepmom. This will also strengthen your relationship and sustain a happy and healthy (step)family.

Take time for yourself by setting personal goals, planning a date night with your girlfriends, retreating to the bedroom with a good book or run a nice bath. And most importantly, don’t feel guilty for stepping back and taking time for yourself because it’s okay!

Woman need some me time every once in awhile.
