If your life is unbalanced on the outside it is because you are unbalanced on the inside! Whether it is a hot bath, a manicure or a quick workout for example, when you make taking time to care for yourself a PRIORITY you will begin to see things in your life fall into place more smoothly.
All I want for Valentines day this year is an entire day devoted to taking care of myself ! and it is my guess that many moms around the globe are feeling the same way. I truly believe that taking time for yourself is an essential component to being the best mother and influence for your kids. Surrender the feelings of guilt and know that sometimes putting yourself first and taking some very precious time devoted to you is the greatest gift you can give and receive! Whether it’s a massage, a yoga class, or even just a hot bath! I guarantee that time will leave you feeling and loving the great woman you are. Happy Valentines day!
I write about ways to help yourself look and feel better all year and I truly believe that self care for every mother is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and for your family. I find when I am consistently exercising and meditating for just a few minutes each day, eating well, getting enough rest and keeping myself looking good , I feel better! As a result I am more patient and feel I am a better mother. I resolve to do a little more for myself this year! like treating myself to some alone time at a cafe with my headphones and my favorite music playing, more evenings out with my girlfriends, date nights with my husband and above all I am definitely getting a HOUSEKEEPER! You shouldn’t feel guilty about taking care of yourself! instead by doing so you set a great example especially for your daughters that self preservation is a key component to a healthier and happier life. Isn’t that what we all want? I wish every woman and every Morningmom a beautiful and very Happy New Year and an amazing 2012!
I woke up this morning in a hotel while I am travelling for a photo shoot and my eyes were like two golf balls. I soaked a cloth in icy cold water and placed it over my eyes for 5 minutes and voila, I can see! Cold has a contracting effect so remember that next time your in a pinch and need instant relief.
This time of year is very busy and crammed with so many things to do with the holidays fast approaching. If your eyes are like mine and need a little extra brightening and lift, try this trick to help create a lifting illusion. Apply white eyeliner on the inside bottom corner of the eyes. Then take the same liner and highlight just underneath the arch of your eyebrows. Make sure to blend the liner with your finger!
Traveling can be exhausting and it can take a toll leaving us feeling and looking fatigued. Say YESto blueberries age refresh brightening eye roller. After a long flight or drive use this eye roller as an instant wake up call. Oh and by the way that is the name of this great product YESto!
